The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), on Thursday in Abuja, lamented over the activities of some fraudsters using fake websites to dupe unsuspecting public.
According to Prof. Ish-aq Oloyede, JAMB Registrar/Chief Executive in a statement, one of such websites www.askjamb.com is using its platforms to solicit payments for malpractice services in the forthcoming 2017 UTME.
He added that the website had continued to advertise help for candidates with JAMB 2017 live questions and planned malpractice offers to candidates including help within the examination hall.
He, called on the relevant authorities to ensure that www.askjamb.com and its likes are brought down and the perpetrators brought to justice.
He mentioned that the board earlier in January took note of such fraudulent websites and worked with the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) to suspend the domain of some of the websites.
He thanked NITDA for taking swift action, but added that there was still much to be done as the some of the suspected websites are still active. This includes www.jambresults.org.ng, www.askjamb.com and www.jamborgng.info
He warned the public to be fearful of such websites as they are not related to JAMB.
