Here are the disclaimers:

  • We are not “Sapient Vendors Engineering Solutions Ltd”, our full company is name Sapient Vendors Ltd.

Update 1

We conducted a research on the said ‘Williams Tunde‘ with the dedicated number +2348094303347, the same number is not associated with Williams Tunde but Anthony Agu of A.A. Investment (possibly another scam company).

The same number is confirmed from our research and intel from the telecommunication service provider. We have commenced necessary investigation and soon he would be brought to justice.

The said Anthony Agu has a long history of internet fraud.

We hereby use this to reinforce our statement that we are not currently recruiting, and if we plan to recruit it would be advertised on our website.
