TETFund unveils plot to defraud two million students
The Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) has alerted to plot by fraudsters to defraud unsuspecting Nigerian students by luring them to register for a fake grant purportedly given by the organisation.
Its Director of Corporate Affairs, Abdulmumin Oniyangi, in a statement yesterday, said the fraudulent information had been on various platforms, suggesting that the agency was doling out N20,000 to every student.
He explained that the scammers claim that the grant was part of TETFund’s 2021 budget to support two million students, with registration purportedly closing on June 6,2021.
Oniyangi, therefore, distanced his establishment from the scam, stating that it was another attempt by criminals to deceive students and members of the public.
“The management of TETFund dissociates itself from the above claims, as it is another attempt by criminal elements to deceive, not only the students but the public as well, into falling prey in the hands of these faceless individuals,” he added.
