Advice from JAMB to UTME candidates “Don’t fall for score upgrade fraudsters”

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has warned candidates who took this year’s Unified Tertiary Matriculation Exam (UTME) to be wary of scammers who call them to improve scores.

The board, in its weekly bulletin on Sunday in Abuja, warned that such calls to be informed of its results were a scam and advised parents and candidates not to participate in such an act, threatening the sanction.

The organization said, “The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) Anti-Corruption and Transparency Unit wants to inform parents, guardians, and candidates in particular that there is nothing called ‘JAMB score improvement.'” This has never existed and will never be tolerated by the board.

“Parents / guardians and candidates should be aware that the so-called score improvement is simply a scam perpetrated by scammers to deceive the gullible and unsuspecting candidates, their parents or guardians, as the case may be.”

He added: “Therefore, any parent / guardian / candidate who engages in such a fraudulent act is doing so at their own risk and must be ready to face the wrath of the law when caught.” Similarly, JAMB directed candidates with challenges or complaints to its ticketing platform.
