“Over 1,000 Nigerians Stranded In UK Due To Fake Employment” – IOM

The United Nations Migration Agency, International Organisation for Migration (IOM) has stated that more than 1,000 Nigerians have fallen victim to sc@ms involving foreign job opportunities in the United Kingdom.

Boeck noted that some of the victims lost as much as $10,000 each in their desperate attempts to secure foreign jobs.

He said victims are stranded in the UK because some of them lack the means to come back, while others are ashamed of coming back to their families.

“They get there, present the letters, and the organisations tell them that the letters did not emanate from the organisations. Over a thousand people are affected,” he stated.

Boeck added that IOM is working with partners to repatriate thousands of people, including Nigerians, from Tunisia, which has recently placed a ban on migration.
