The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has dismissed a viral grant scheme being circulated on social media as ‘President Bola Tinubu’s N50,000 Cash Grant’ to Nigerians.
This was contained in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja by Mrs Hadiza Umar, Head, Corporate Affairs and External Relations, NITDA.
Umar, who cautioned Nigerians about the scheme, said that the website associated with the grant was a phishing website designed to mislead unsuspecting citizens.
According to her, NITDA-Computer Emergency Readiness and Response Team (NITDA-CERRT) advises the public to avoid clicking on unknown links.
“The website ‘https://thryt.com/50k-CashGrants, is a phishing website that tends to lure users into divulging their personal information, such as full names, phone number, home address, email address and bank account details, such as name of bank and account number,” she said.
“Avoid clicking on this website and other similar websites, which can lead to divulging personal information in order not to fall prey to cyber criminals.”
She explained that the government would always communicate such information via the appropriate agency supervising such programmes, should there be any.
Umar advised the public to contact the agency’s CERRT on email via firstname.lastname@example.org, phone number- +234 817 877 4580, web address- www.cerrt.ng.
