EFCC denies alleged raid on the home of Walter Onnoghen

The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has been drawn to the activities of fraudsters who disguise as officers of the Commission and send scam mail to individuals, purporting such to be from the EFCC, with the aim of extorting money from them.

The Commission has uncovered a number of email addresses, telephone numbers and websites used by unscrupulous persons to perpetrate such fraudulent activities (scam mail) and is acting on them.

In some instances, they send fraudulent emails, letters and make telephone calls to unsuspecting members of the public, by also impersonating government officials and organisations.

While alerting the public of these fraudulent activities (scam mail) the EFCC states that anyone who enters into any agreement with any such impostor does so at his/her peril.

The EFCC has stated severally that none of its officers will demand for gratification to “kill” an investigation, and no operative will invite a suspect to any location apart from EFCC’s designated offices, which can be found on its website.

Members of the public are, therefore, advised not to send money to any fraudster demanding money in the name of the EFCC for whatever purpose, and to desist from engaging in any communications with them.
