Beware: CAC Certificate fraud takes a new height

There is no doubt that the recent Federal Government Schemes especially the MSME Survival Funds Scheme has centered on Corporate Affairs Commision Certificate of business registration and has reaffirmed the undying importance of the CAC Certificate to a business owner in Nigeria.

However, Fraudsters have seen the demand for CAC as a viable venture to place their baits for unsuspecting Nigerians who are not only desperate to benefit from the on going Federal Government Schemes but also to prepare themselves for future schemes having discovered the importance of the CAC Certificate.

Asides individual Fraudsters who claim to offer CAC Certificates at ridiculous discounted rates and processing duration, the Corporate Affairs Commision's Facebook page has been cloned and has attracted many victims in less that 72hours.

The Fake and Fraudulent Facebook page https://bit.ly/2ZkTed8 is currently being organically promoted by another Facebook Page named "Business Wise. Com"  https://bit.ly/3dmU3dM which changed it's name from "Nigerian Youths Investment Fund" after taking turns on unsuspecting Nigerians on Fake NYIF Training Certificates obtainable through a fraudulent website with a Paystack plug-in for effecting payments.
