The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board ( #JAMB) has alerted candidates over the scheme employed by fraudsters to defraud unsuspecting candidates. Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, the Registrar of the Board, who disclosed this in the board’s weekly news bulletin, advised all candidates to “jealously guard their UTME registration numbers and profile codes to avoid falling victim of this latest scam.”


He warned that these fraudsters use candidate’s registration number to print out their examination notification slip in order to gain access to their personal information such as the candidate’s phone number and other vital information. The fraudsters then use the information to send messages to same candidates disguising as JAMB officials, with claims that they have special information, access and capacity to increase the candidates’ scores among other things.

The registrar advised candidates to disregard messages or calls from anybody claiming to have access to the board’s classified information. “The board wishes to state emphatically that the results of the 2019 UTME have not been released,” the registrar added.

He also urged the public, particularly parents and candidates, to be wary of these dubious elements and disregard any overtures made by anybody touting their power or influence to inflate any candidate’s score.

“The board will make it public when the results are ready. As such, the channel through which candidates can view their results has been communicated to them.

”In the meantime, security operatives have picked up some of these nefarious characters and they are on the trail of others still at large,” it further added.

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
