The Nigerian Embassy and Consulates-General in the US have raised alarm over a fake website for passport application.
This is contained in a notice jointly issued by the Embassy of Nigeria in
Washington, DC, the Consulate-General of Nigeria in New York and the
Consulate-General of Nigeria in Atlanta.
The missions warned Nigerians against using unauthorised websites and
the need for them to seek proper guidance on passport applications.
They also warned that the fake website was defrauding unsuspecting
Nigerians by directing them to make payments, which are unauthorised
by the missions.
The missions advised applicants outside Nigeria to apply through the
official websites of the respective embassies and consulates where they
intend to process their passports.
In addition, the Consulate-General advised all passport applicants to
channel their enquiries to the consulate through the right place.
