WAEC warn against websites advertising exam questions

The West African Examination Council(WAEC) has warned members of the public against fraudsters scamming unsuspecting students sitting for the ongoing 2016-2017 West African Senior School Certificate Examination(WASSCE).

Reports of websites advertising 2016-2017 examination questions have been increasing said WAEC‘s public relations officer, Demianus Ojijeogu in a statement on Tuesday.

The statement read in part: ”We have grappled with this scammers for years now. Last year some were arrested by the Police ditto for previous years. This year before the commencement of the WASSCE, we wrote the Inspector General of Police and the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State complaining of the nefarious activities of these fraudulent individuals advertising WASSCE questions on the internet and mobile phone text messages and requested that urgent steps be taken to apprehend them to serve as deterrence to others.

”Some like NaijaPaded have taken down their WASSCE related posts. The trend is to make the gullible candidates believe that they can get WASSCE solved answers on their phones at the payment of a fee in the form of sending recharge cards before the commencement of the paper.

“The Council is working with the security agencies to apprehend them. For the sake of the on-going examination, we have mobilised all our staff including some management staff to ensure effective and thorough monitoring of the examination centres to forestall malpractice.We are collating reports of some schools allegedly involved in examination malpractice.”

Search by our correspondent revealed that veegoworld.com, one of the websites advertising the exam question papers has been pulled down.
