The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has disassociated itself from a Scam Alert trending in social media, which purportedly emanated from EFCC Help Desk Headquarters, Jabi-Abuja.

In a press statement issued and signed by Wilson Uwujaren, Head, Media & Publicity, and made available via its Official Twitter handle, the Commission said it has no such desk, adding that any information supposedly emanated from the said EFCC HELP DESK, did not originate from the EFCC.

Uwujaren noted that the use of EFCC by the authors of the Scam Alert, smacks of sinister motives, and it is important that the public is put on notice, as the Commission will not be liable should anyone becomes a victim of what is obviously a scam.
