Like many hoping to land that dream job, get a change of appointment, I hurriedly moved to my mail box to retrieve the mail, only to meet the most scandalous email I've received in years. You've never seen SCAM so perfectly put in your entire job-hunting life.

In the first place, where on God's earth does someone get this magnitude of a job for you without ever requesting your CV nor have any previous job contacts with you?
Immediate posting to Uniliver Nig Ltd, to do what?
You want to conduct an employment process in the Multi Purpose Hall of Unilag on a wednesday???
Pay to the HRM's private account, not even the so called MegaNet's? This guys must be seeing themselves as magnets that can attract peoples #2,200 easily.
I thought of delaying this untill wednesday, but on considering the number of prospective victims, I thought again, "A stitch in time saves nine".
The most saddening is the fact that. Kayode and his organisation has no contact address or phone numbers. What do they take us for? For am so sure such mails must have by now been forwarded to thousands of unsuspecting job seekers, in which a reasonable number will by now be making Kayode #2,200 richer per head.
This is madness I tell you!
I challenge Adesanya Kayode of MegaNet to come out openly, declare his/his company's contacts, and prove his credibility, else he risks rounds of rubbishing from me and my other social media activists.
Maybe we're not seeing what am seeing, but I plead with you to see this:
He's just about to label Ecobank with the wrong tag, soil the integrity of Unilag and its Multipurpose hall. And also that of Meganet Nigeria Limited (the certified bearer of the Meganet business name. *locatable on google) (Well I know none of the afore mentioned institutions are aware of his evil acts/plans, hopefully they will before long).
We must bring this nonsense to a halt.
It is high time we stopped keeping quiet on scams, most especially job fraud issues.
This is absolute wickedness, mega-madness I call it.
Adesanya Kayode must be cut short ASAP!
I don't remember making demands on you friend, but permit me to make this one. Spread this information as far as you can, until Kayode Adesanya and his MegaNet crew are blacklisted and brought to book.
Longlive the Social media,
Longlive the innocent, hard-fighting spirit of the Nigerian job seeker!
Aluta continua, Victoria ascerta!
