The United States of America Mission in Nigeria has raised the alarm over a new visa fraud.
The Mission raised the alarm in a statement on Friday.
It said: “The US Mission to Nigeria is drawing the general public’s attention to a fake ‘press release’ claiming to offer a new type of work visa to Nigerians.
“Scammers and fraudsters circulate this phoney information that the new work visa applies to Nigerian citizens aged 40-55.
“The U.S. Embassy in Abuja and Consulate in Lagos is warning Nigerians not to fall victims to the scam. It is the same old scam, but in fresh packaging – don’t become a victim! If you have questions about whether visa information is legitimate, please refer only to official sources: travel.state.gov, ng.usembassy.gov/visas, and www.ustraveldocs.com/ng.
