The rate of interest fraudsters in Nigeria is alarming, even young girls indulge in online scam but thanks to the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for their steadfastness in catching the culprits.
Earlier today, a 24-year-old girl was arrested by the EFCC over internet fraud. The “Yahoo” girl is an upcoming internet fraudsters but has been scamming people off their hard-earned money on Social Media.
According to reports, the Yahoo girl disguised to be one Sophie Rodriguez on Instagram thereby deceiving people that she is a bitcoin expert to defraud them.
The EFCC were able to recover an Infinix hot 8 phone from the suspect, and she has made some useful statements as she is soon to appear in court once the investigation has been completed.
So sad that most youths think internet fraud is the only way to make money and be free from poverty but in reality it is not.
Yes, nobody wants to remain poor but at least start something legal no matter how small it would surely make a way for you.
According to the Constitution, Under the Cybercrime Act 2015 in Nigeria, hackers, if found guilty, of unlawfully accessing a computer system or network, are liable to a fine of up to N10 million or a term of imprisonment of 5 years (depending on the purpose of the hack).
Once investigation has been completed and Queen Jonathan is found guilty then she is very much likely to spend some time in prison.
But why are girls indulging in internet fraud these days?
