Nigeria is home to some of the most prolific levels of cyber crime. In an effort to dissuade Nigerians from engaging in cyber crime, the Nigerian government, in partnership with Microsoft, has released a song and video titled “Maga Need No Pay.”
The video references a number of slang terms used in Nigeria. Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has stepped up efforts to combat the growing rates of cyber crime in Nigeria.
One of the most popular scams is the advanced-free fraud. It involves targeting victims with email or letter messages, which convince the victim to send the criminal money in the belief that they will receive a larger sum at a later date.
