We don’t have social media accounts —DSS

DSS stops June 12 rally in Ibadan, arrests three

The Department of State Services (DSS) Monday promised to deal ruthlessly with fraudsters using fake websites purported to be that of the service to defraud unsuspecting members of the public.

The spokesman for the DSS, Mr. Peter Afunanya, said in a statement in Abuja that the Service does not currently operate social media platforms.

He said: “The Department of State Services wishes to restate that it does not presently own or operate an official website or any social media platforms particularly twitter and Facebook handles. It also does not conduct its recruitment through any of the aforementioned.

“This statement has become important so as to dissociate the Service from some websites fraudulently being operated by impostors.

“Therefore, such websites, Facebook pages and twitter handles disguised as those of the DSS for purposes of employment or any other reason should be disregarded.

“It is instructive to note that persons of dubious character, who are guided by pecuniary interests, use false social media platforms suggesting to be owned by the DSS to lure and defraud unsuspecting members of the public.
