Be careful everyone, some fraudsters are out there claiming to be top officials of the Nigeria Security and Civil DefenseCorps, (NSCDC), are busy scamming unsuspecting Nigerians with lies that the Agency is currently undergoing a replacement exercise.
I received a call yesterday afternoon from one Inspector Mike from Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, (NSCDC), he called my name with a warm voice and greeted me in a familiar tone while he introduced himself as someone I met last year at Alagbado, Lagos. But still can
