The fake JAMB e-facility cards are being sold at a price higher than the original quoted priceThe Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, on Monday alerted the public on reports of fake Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, e-facility cards in circulation in Lagos.
The Coordinator of the Board in Lagos, Kamaldeen Oladeji, said this in the state.
Mr. Oladeji said that the board’s annex in Lagos had been informed that some persons were selling fake e-facility cards for the board’s 2014 UTME.
“I want to seize this opportunity to sensitise the public of this ugly development.
“Some candidates have reported the purchase of fake e-facility cards to the JAMB National Headquarters Annex at No. 11, Ojora Road, Ikoyi, Lagos.
“The candidates said they bought the fake e-facility cards from vendors at the Lagos State University (LASU) and around Ikotun and Sango-Ota.”
Mr. Oladeji said candidates complained that the fake e-facility cards were being sold at a price higher than the quoted purchase price of N1,000.
He warned that any vendor found selling the e-facility cards outside the board’s offices nationwide would face the wrath of the law.
The Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination, UTME, e-facility cards presents candidates with the PIN to gain access to their original UTME result slip and JAMB admission letter.
Mr. Oladeji added that the e-facility card was only available for sale to the public at the board’s offices nationwide.
