In a related story, an interesting video of a young lady helping her boyfriend to rip off a white man in a love scam- a peculiar activity that’s so widespread in Nigeria.
Cyberfraud which comes in various forms continues to be justified by these youths who have been bedeviled with mass unemployment hinged on bad governance.
In this video, the fraudster recruited his girlfriend into the act the moment the white man decided to hear the voice of the romantic ‘lady’ he thought he has been chatting with all this while. The girl did so well to sync with her boyfriend’s scheme as she gives a very good accent to hoodwink the white man.
