Fraudsters Impersonates GTBank In A Recruitment Scam

Guaranty Trust Bank.

Fraudsters in Lagos have just perpetrated one of the largest recruitment scam by impersonating GTBank PLC, Nigeria’s third largest bank by asset base.

Job hunting is not becoming any easy for the helpless Nigerian youth as some unscrupulous elements sent out broadcast message for vacancy in Guarantee Trust Bank call center.

 Wednesday 28th September (yesterday) was the said date for the interview which turned out to be a hoax as many were left stranded. Below is the broadcast message received by one of the applicants which started going round on Tuesday via Whatsapp and BlackBerry Messenger (BBM).
‘If you have anyone interested in a job at a call centre for GTB, kindly tell them to come tomorrow for an interview.
Requirement: BSc. Graduate
Salary: 80,000
Venue: Resource Intermediaries Ltd, 18a, Elsie Femi Pearse Street,off adeola odeku street, Victoria Island
Time: from 9am..also come with his/her CV…thank you”
Kindly ask for Niyi upon arrival.
God bless
Of course it sounds ‘juicy’ to the young graduates at time when the most popular word in Nigeria is recession. Obviously, those who have traveled from far and near were left disappointed. Below is the message from the purported recruiting firm sent on the same day the previous message went round.
In a reply to the bad PR that might affect its image, GTBank PLC has issued an official statement to disown the entire process. See below
”There is a recruitment notice in circulation about recruitment for a Bank’s Call Center supposedly by Resource Intermediaries Limited.
