The Joint Admissions Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned its 2019 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) candidates awaiting their results against fraudsters who deploy various methods to dupe them.

The board said this in its weekly bulletin from the registrar's office, made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday.

JAMB also advised candidates to jealousy guard their registration numbers, as well as profile codes, to avoid falling victims to scammers.

The board said fraudsters, after establishing the information needed, open up a line of communication with the candidates. They thereafter dangle enticing offers to award them with higher scores in the yet to be released results.

"Candidates are to note that their Registration numbers and Profile Codes are essential data that should not be disclosed to unauthorized persons.

"What these fraudsters do is take advantage of candidates' naivety and subsequently obtain their registration number with which they print their examination notification slips with candidate's numbers and other vital data.

"These fraudsters then use the information to send messages to same candidates disguising as officials of the board or persons who have special information, access and capacity to inflate scores, among other things.

"We therefore urge candidates to see their registration numbers and profile codes as security data similar to that of the ATM pin number which admits them to make withdrawal from their bank accounts."

The board further urged candidates and parents to disregard messages or calls from any such, who claim to have access to classified information.

However, the board said that security operatives have apprehended some of the fraudsters while still on the trail of others.

JAMB to announce when results are ready

JAMB also said that it would make public when the 2019 UTME results are ready. The results are expected to be released from Monday, the board said last week.

It also said that the mode through which candidates can view their results have been communicated to them.

The board had earlier said candidates can simply send RESULT, via SMS, to 55019 using the same number that was used for registration.

The result, it said, would be replied as an SMS shortly after.

This process, the board explained, was simplified to preclude exploitation by Shylock business centres and cyber caf├ęs who often take advantage of candidates.

The 2019 UTME was conducted nationwide from April 11 to April 18 with over 1.8 million candidates.
