The FCT Command of Directorate of State Services, (DSS) has advised Nigerians to desist from sending their sensitive pictures to anyone on the Internet, saying that fraudsters have devised a new means of using the same pictures to blackmail women and then extort huge sums of money from them.
Abubakar Bubuche who is the director of the command gave the advise while parading two suspected fraudsters at the command yesterday January 13th.
He said unsuspecting members of the society send their sensitive photos to these fraudsters who are mostly ICT professionals. The fraudsters then use computer animation to strip their victims. He said the fraudsters then ask their victims to pay some money or have their naked photo uploaded on any of the social media platforms.
A complaint from one of the residents in Abuja led to the arrest of the two men paraded yesterday.
