The management of Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH has disowned a website announcing that it is currently recruiting doctors.
Prof. Chris Bode, the Chief Medical Director, CMD, who raised the alarm on Tuesday, called on the Inspector-General of Police to help fish out the culprits.
In a statement released by the management, Prof. Bode said the hospital has nothing to with the website.
“Our attention has been drawn to an online platform purporting to recruit fresh House Officers for the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) through Medimail247 E-Parcel Service. Intending applicants have been asked to buy forms for N5000 and pay a parcel charge of 1750. The email address used is [email protected]
“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 patronize the fraudsters.
“We are asking that the Inspector-General of Police of the Federation 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.” the statement read,
