The Rise Of Local Scams In Nigeria, A Clear Picture Of A Country With Failed System (A MUST READ)

The word “Scam” and “Nigeria” go in tandem. This is a grossly heartbreaking fact. If you’ve done a local scam before and you’re reading this, na God go punish you😡

Internet fraud perpetrated across the borderline of this country from Nigeria is alarming and it’s understandable why it’s so hard to put an end to it.

But why is it so hard to combat internet fraud carried out locally?

Some miscreants now gain access to other people’s bank account here in Nigeria, move the money to another Nigeria bank account, and that’s the end.

They do this through USSD or even deceive people into sending money for a product they don’t have or a service they won’t render.

Many Nigerians working so hard to earn money have lost their hard-earned money kept in their Nigerian bank accounts to scammers with no hope of getting their money back because those agencies that are supposed to help will make things more complicated or won’t help at all.

Sometimes, I feel like the Government should just privatize the Nigerian Police Force so we will all know that the force is a non-governmental commercial venture.

Why will someone walk into a Police Station to report local fraud and the Police will ask you to pay a certain amount before they can begin anything on the case.

I have a friend who got scammed like that and went to report at a Police station. The Police actually told him to bring N20,000 so they can buy fuel to get court orders and money for mobilization.

According to research, if he pays that money, they will keep asking for more money until it becomes obvious that he has become a victim of another scam.
