Screenshot_20160829-083731~2Scammers, parading as non-governmental organizations(NGO) have been using fictitious names to defraud corporate bodies and individuals by claiming they are representing the interests of the Internally Displaced Persons in Borno State. The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has said it has discovered no fewer than 40 fake NGOs involved.
Mr Ibrahim Abdullahi, the Commandant of the NSCDC in the state, revealed.
Abdullahi said the illegal NGOs were running nothing more than a certified scam by their actions.
“We discovered that many of them were only interested in posing with IDPs going through hardship to access funds from donors.
“We discovered that some of them, currently occupying most of the big hotels in town, are only interested in defrauding their donors by sending fake data, messages and pictures via internet so as to access fund.
“When we interrogated some of them, they said they just came into the town and were trying to figure out the problems to enable them to bring in their intervention.
“The command, therefore, urged the government to be wary of such elements parading themselves as NGOs, while the agency will go after all the bad elements,” said Abdullahi.
