The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has alerted the public to be wary of fraudsters using the name of its acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu, for fraudulent activities on Facebook.

This is contained in a statement signed by Mr Wilson Uwujaren, EFCC spokesman and issued to newsmen on Monday in Abuja.

The statement cautioned the public against responding to friend’s request and other demands through the Facebook account.

It listed the two Facebook accounts as: https://www.facebook.com/ibrahimmustafa.magu andhttps://www.facebook.com/magu.ibrahim.77.

“The two accounts have become platform for various unwholesome activities including soliciting for gratification and influence peddling using the name of the EFCC boss.

“The general public is therefore advised to be mindful of telephone calls by persons claiming to be acting on behalf of the acting chairman and soliciting for gratification.

“Such calls and persons should be reported to the EFCC or the nearest police station.”

The statement also urged the public to be vigilant and help the commission in unmasking the perpetrators, who it said, were bent on soiling the reputation of Magu and the EFCC.

“The commission does not solicit money or gratification of any sort to carry out its statutory duties.

“The commission’s official Facebook account is https://www.facebook.com/officialefcc and could also be reached on 234-9-9044751, 234-9-9044752 or email on info@efccnigeria.org.”
