UNN Warns Against Certificate Scam – Official Statement

University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) has issued a warning against an online certificate scam, discrediting a Facebook post promoting fraudulent certificate collection. The University only releases certificates to the legitimate owners on the presentation of clearance papers. It urges the public and alumni to beware of fraudsters, emphasizing it will not be accountable for money lost to such scams.

In a world where the internet has made communication and transactions seamless, scams and fraudulent activities are also on the rise. The University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), one of Nigeria’s premier higher institutions, has recently issued a disclaimer notice to the public, warning against a certificate scam circulating online.

The attention of the Registry Office, Careers and Students Service Unit at UNN was recently drawn to a Facebook post that encourages students to pay into a certain bank account to receive their certificates via waybill. This unscrupulous post is an attempt to exploit unsuspecting individuals, particularly alumni and members of the public, by presenting a fraudulent method of obtaining certificates from the university.

The University Authority, however, has been quick to respond to this fraudulent post and clarify the official procedures for obtaining certificates. They have emphasized that under no circumstances does the university release certificates to anyone except the legitimate owners. Furthermore, certificate owners must present proper clearance papers before their certificates are released to them.

The UNN has thus cautioned its alumni and the general public to beware of such fraudsters posing as representatives of the university. The University Authority reiterated that it will not be held accountable for any money paid to these anonymous individuals or groups.

Internet fraud is a severe issue, and the university is committed to protecting its students, alumni, and the public. It is advised that individuals verify all information before making any form of payment or disclosing personal information online.
