The commission said it was worried with reports that some unscrupulous elements were collecting money from innocent members of the society in the name of offering them jobs.

She said in the statement made available to journalists that “as a commission, we will not fold our hands and watch a few bad eggs toying with the sensibilities of the innocent unemployed members of the society.

“We reiterate that there is no job for sale by the commission and as such she cautioned the youths to avoid falling prey to scammers.

“The Commission also wishes to warn that any of its staff and individuals caught engaging in such activity of job racketeering would face the full weight of the law.

“To this end, the members of the public are advised to report any person or persons in the commission who engages in such acts.”
