Fraudulent companies/individuals claiming to be associated with Nigeria Centenary Celebration Watch out for scam emails and websites
We are aware of cases where emails are sent falsely claiming to be from Nigeria Centenary Celebration Committee, or other organisations involved in the Celebration, but that are actually the first step in a fraud scam. They typically encourage the recipient to reveal information such as bank details or to part with money as an up-front payment in order to release a prize.
Nigeria Centenary Celebration Committee will only ever use a secure website to collect personal or bank card details. Look for a padlock symbol in the browser window. The website address will begin with ‘https://'. If you click on the padlock, your browser will either give our full title (Nigeria Centenary Celebration Committee), or identify our sites as part of nigeriacentenary.com.ng.
If you don't see a padlock, or if the site name is not what you are expecting, then you should not enter personal or financial information into the page.
Some common scams include:
- Emails/letters informing the recipient they have won an ‘Centenary Celebration lottery' that they haven't entered.
- Emails/letters to manufacturing companies, asking them to pay large fees in order to provide items for the Centenary Celebration.
- Emails/letters informing the recipient that they can apply for a job being involved with the Centenary Celebrationfor a fee.
