A message circulating on WhatsApp claims that the federal government has ordered the Corporate affairs commission to register people and businesses for free.
The claim is FALSE
The message which is still circulating on WhatsApp added that individuals or businesses registered will received #50,000 cash.
Other benefits as listed on the message included “Certificate of Incorporation, Legal Liability Protection, Free International Trade, Continuity, Ability to transact Oversea, Reputation With Customers, Getting on FG Record.”
The message added a web link (https://slnkz.com/CAC-REG2023) for interested applicants to enroll.
Checks by Project Factcheck Nigeria showed that the website is a phishing link designed to extract details of unsuspecting applicants.
After filling the details, it was discovered that applicants are expected to share a link on WhatsApp till an icon turns green.
However, no matter how long you shared, the colour remain the same.
Meanwhile, CAC had in a tweet warned the public to disregard the viral message.
“Please disregard any SMS or WhatsApp message asking you to enrol for free CAC registration, as it is not from us! Thank you.” The tweet read.
The claim that CAC offering free registration and #50,000 cash is FALSE
