MSME Survival Fund: Beware of fraudsters, FG cautions Nigerians

The federal government has warned Nigerians to beware of the activities of scammers who claim to be disbursing the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Survival Fund of 80,000 naira.

In a statement issued on Monday, Johnson, coordinator of the Federal Government‘s MSME Survival Fund Scheme’s Project Delivery Office (PDO), said scammers are trying to steal from unsuspecting members of the public.

“Fraudsters defraud the public under the guise of the MSME Survival Fund Scheme,” he said.

Johnson stated that trails of the survival fund scheme have been closed, but even the initial verification process did not require beneficiaries to give up their account details of the people the ongoing scam demanded.

“The public has requests circulating through social media and SMS for people to divulge their account details to benefit from the Survival Fund Scheme is a scam.

“Therefore, members of the public should ignore such requests.

“The public is requested to note that the only valid number for inquiries and information for the Survival Fund Scheme is 07004000500.

“The Scheme is also not disbursing the sum of N80,000 or any amount in the form of a grant or loan to individuals or companies as advertised.

Johnson also stated that the committee in charge of the survival fund headed by State, Industry, Trade and Investment, Amb. Maryam Katagum, has contacted law enforcement agencies to track down and bring the scammer to justice.

He also said that progress in the implementation of the survival fund plan will be communicated to the public through the formal channels established by the committee.
