A Nigerian lady identified as Fola Ogunsemo who is schooling in Manchester, United Kingdom has taken to her Instagram page to reveal her shock in seeing the negative effects of internet fraud perpetrated by Nigerians.
She posted screenshots of her examination question paper in which one of the questions was centered around internet fraud, popularly known as yahoo in Nigeria.
In the question, the advanced fee fraud was cited and students were asked to give the alternative name for it, which The Nigerian fraud happened to be one of the options to choose from.
The obviously angered lady wondered why Nigeria would be the case study for such atrocity when it is even being perpetuated all across the world and to make matters worse, her friends asked what she thought about the question after the exam.
“This is my exam paper for a module named “Law in a business context” with the red circle which I did today 23rd of May. Stepping out of the exam hall my friends were like “Fola how did you feel about question 22” and for the first time in my life, I felt ashamed of being a Nigerian.
I believe fraud is being committed everywhere but for it to be recognised and used as an exam question in UK, then it is VERY BAD for Nigeria. My lecture slide showed a typical example of a “yahoo boy’s” storyline in the green circle, I went further to search for “Advence-fee scam” with the belief that it was exaggerated in my lecture slide and I found the information in the blue circle.
I am short of words at the moment realising the fact that there’s been so much issues lately about “yahoo boys” on social media, this is not a good reputation for Nigerians at all……. This matter tire me ooo my people.”
