According to TVC News, some youths blamed their parents for them getting involved in fraudulent activities.

Is it true that parents should be blamed for their children's involvement in cybercrime Are parents the cause of all of these? According to some youths who were interviewed about the matter, they said that the parents are always the ones pressurizing their children to go and make a living for themselves. They sometimes compare their children with their mates who have made money, not minding how they made the money.

So, this pressure makes some youths to go get involved in cybercrime and other fraudulent activities. They said parents are responsible for pushing their children to do what they never wanted to do.
