My name is Cynthia Joseph, am 17 years old and I would like to share my JAMB story with you guys, so other people will not be deceived as i was deceived.
This year jamb exam was to hold on April but due to the fact that I was at home after my WAEC, I have started reading and preparing for JAMB since December 2012. My course is economics and I was sitting for Maths, English, Commerce and Economics.
I scored 183 in my second try. I checked my result in 3 cyber-cafe because it was so hard for me to believe it was my result, I cried and cried but the crying did not change anything.
My parents were not disappointed they were just surprised that I got that score but they said its God’s doing that I should wait for next year.. That was the saddest sentence I have ever heard in my life.
When my neighbor check his own he scored 215, he was so shocked he thought jamb made a mistake but what made him believe it was his result was because he used CHOKES.
Two weeks after the examination I came across a website www.upgradejamb.blogspot.com/ When i saw the website I was shocked and I showed it to my elder brother who was a graduate he discouraged me to forget about the site, that it is against the law, he went further saying if i get caught i will spend some years in jail, but i laughed it off
I read all what was written on the website and it was so perfect that I believed every word that was written there. So i called the phone number and a guy picked it up, I told him that I saw his number on a jamb site and that i will like to upgrade my jamb score from 182 to 205. He said that’s not a problem and he would help me do it in 5 hours after payment. he requested for my jamb details which I sent and he told me that when I pay the money I should call him..
I was kinda happy and I decided not to tell my parents, I will use the upgraded result as a surprise to them, I brought out all my savings it was 3,500 naira i could put together. I lied to my elder bother that I want to learn how to type and the typist requested for 1,500 naira. He gave it to me immediately and said after i learn it i will be more useful to him and I will have something doing.
The next day i headed to the bank and i payed the sum of 5,000 naira into his Account;
Its not like I want a refund or something. I just want people to know that this upgrading stuff is not real and I wish someone can catch the owner of that site and lock him up because I believe I am not his only victim and I will not be his last.
Thanks for reading and you all can ask me any questions you like but no insults please.
Someone should please report this brave thief to the E.F.C.C cause he is spoiling our education system in nigeria
