Another Economic Hero bringing disgrace to Nigeria.

Yahoo criminal that should be lynched like we lynch petty thieves and beat up generator thieves and burglars.

And he has been staying there illegally on a 3 Months business visa since 2012.

Nigerians and Crime, twins conceived together.

I don't mind working for free just to help catch these internet fraudsters.

Indian men? They love women like crazy.

But something serious needs to be done regarding this internet fraud of a thing. It is starting to become disgusting.

These boys are even exporting their fraud overseas, especially Malaysia, Ghana, India and South Africa.

Even the Ghanians are hot in the field of internet fraud. They call it Sakawa.
