The Chief Medical Director of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Prof. Chris Bode, on Tuesday raised the alarm on a fake recruitment platform for doctors.
The hospital management, therefore, urged the Inspector-General of Police to assist it in fishing out those behind the site.
Bode, who made the clarifications in a statement, said LUTH had nothing to do with the site.
The statement said, “Our attention has been drawn to an online platform purporting to recruit fresh House Officers for the Lagos University Teaching Hospital through Medimail247 E-Parcel Service.
“Intending applicants have been asked to buy forms for N5,000 and pay a parcel charge of N1,750 each. The email address used is email@example.com.
“The general public is hereby advised that this service is a scam, intended to defraud unwary doctors and fleece them of their money.
“The Lagos University Teaching Hospital has nothing to do with this site and we implore that nobody should patronise the fraudsters.
“We are asking that the Inspector-General of Police should kindly assist in fishing out the culprits involved in this nefarious activity and anyone with information about this group should report any such activity to the security services.”
