Nigerians have been advised to be wary of fraudsters who now pose as Directors of the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) in the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation (OAGF) to dupe unsuspecting members of the public.

This was contained in a public notice on the activities of fraudsters signed by the Accountant General of the Federation, Ahmed Idris in Abuja.

He revealed that the fraudsters usually identify themselves as Dr. Charles Wabande using the mobile number telephone number 09043177807 and Hajia Binta Bello using the mobile number 08038898704.

Idris explained that in their operations, the fraudsters make telephone calls to unsuspecting public service staff and retirees, claiming that they are Directors of IPPIS and that they can facilitate the payment of the staff or retiree’s outstanding arrears.

He said the fraudsters, who usually demand money for their proposed services, also tell the unsuspecting persons about a 2020 IPPIS recruitment form and refer such persons to a supposed IPPIS recruitment portal on www.ippis.gov.ng.

The Accountant General of Federation who disclaimed the activities of these fraudsters, stated that, “the IPPIS had no mandate to recruit officers into the Federal Civil Service and there was no IPPIS website for recruitment”

He maintained that, “IPPIS Desk Officers will not put calls through to retirees and staff having salary arrears; that IPPIS does not handle or pay pension; that the IPPIS office will never request for monetary benefit to facilitate any payment; and that the so called Hajia Binta Bello and Dr. Charles Wabande or whichever name they answer, are not staff of IPPIS or any MDAs on the IPPIS Platform.

Idris advised members of the public to ignore calls, publications and/or online messages from these fraudsters to avoid falling victims and to report such activities to the security agencies.

He stressed that “the Office of the Accountant General of the Federation should not be held liable as a result of any dealings directly, indirectly or consequential arising as a result of transactions with the fraudsters”.
