2024 UTME : Jamb, Police Warn Candidates Against Fake Websites

Candidates of the 2024 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination have been warned to avoid patronising fake websites.

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board gave the warning at a joint press conference with the Nigeria Police Force in Abuja.

They warned that any candidate whose number was found on the site would be disqualified from partaking in the exercise.

The board on 11th April announced that notification slips of candidates who applied for the 2024 UTME were ready.

The slips contained vital information such as the candidates’ date of examination, venue, and time of the examinations.

But, there are now several fake websites designed to deceive candidates into providing personal details such as registration numbers, email addresses, and phone numbers which were exploited for malicious purposes.

JAMB is partnering with the Nigeria Police Force National Cyber Crime Centre to address these issues.

Parents, guardians, and all stakeholders are urged to ensure that candidates print their UTME notification slips only from the board’s approved website.

The Police have vowed to go after scammers and fraudsters who engaged in cyber-related crimes and created phishing sites or portals to defraud or enhance malpractice.
