U.S. Mission to Nigeria warns against visa fraud, as scammers claim new work visa applies to Nigerian citizens aged 40-55

The U.S. Mission to Nigeria on Friday released a statement, warning against work visa fraud.

“The U.S. Mission to Nigeria is drawing the general public’s attention to a fake “press release” claiming to offer a new type of work visa to Nigerians. Scammers and fraudsters circulate this phoney information that the new work visa applies to Nigerian citizens aged 40-55,” the Mission said in a statement.

The U.S. Embassy in Abuja and Consulate in Lagos warned Nigerians not to fall victims to the scam.

“It is the same old scam, but in fresh packaging – don’t become a victim! If you have questions about whether visa information is legitimate, please refer only to official sources: travel.state.govng.usembassy.gov/visas, and www.ustraveldocs.com/ng.”
