Does anybody know this company in Nigeria, SubSea Deck oil Corporation Limited? I have been offered a position with them and it's requested to pay for an FWAC (foreign workers authorisation certificate) to the amount of $207. The person I have been in contact with is: 

Harry Ayoola
Assistant Manager Human Resources (SubSea_Deck Oil Corporation Limited)

Head Office
JTV Tower, Balogun Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, P.M.B 80
Lagos state

And for the Foreign Worker Authorization Certificate is:

Barrister Edionwe 

Designation: Legal Practitioner & Senior Advocate of Nigeria.



If anybody dealt with SubSea deck oil or these persons, please let me know if it is legitimate offer or a scam.

Hi ANDRE007, scams are a common safety issue in Nigeria, and foreigners should always be aware of this possibility regarding job offers. While I cannot speak for this organisation as I have not dealt with it, there are some things to look out for. I have come across a company with a similar name, Subsea 7, and their website provides information on recruitment fraud.

Companies should not ask applicants or candidates for money during recruitment. Nor will they ask about your bank account details and personal information. Be sure to keep your personal details private and not disclose sensitive banking information. Do check if the company has a LinkedIn profile and if they advertise vacancies on it.

In many cases of recruitment fraud, while the companies do exist, the job offers are scams and not from a legitimate source.

I hope this helps.

Hi there, i also received, but the company was Akpevweoghene subsea oil. Was this a scam? As i was looking into all this and replied to emails, and also received email to pay the USD207 for the FWAC

Hi there,

Recieved the same offer, from that company. They send you an offer then a letter of appointment.

Offer is stupid. Bussiness class flights, First minth salary upfront, 2 months before increase. 3 year contract.

But never ever asked for proof of any qualification. And then when i had to pay $105 USD for some IAAC doc, and send the money as gift. So to yank their chain, i sent it, sent them the slip/reciept. And reversed the payment. Lol. 

They have answers to everything but not to where/what exactly you will be doing.

The holding company is ASOC, something like that. And the guy is Ole something.


Biggest scam ever.
