France: Beni man arrested for fraud

In France, Albi police have arrested a 39-year-old Beninese accused of fraud. He is suspected of committing several Internet scams by placing false advertisements. Through investigations, the authorities determined that the man embezzled significant amounts from naive Internet users. In France, fraud is a real scourge that affects hundreds of thousands of people every year.

Therefore, Internet users should be vigilant when shopping online. Private advertising sales sites are the target of scammers from several Eastern European countries as well as Africa. In Africa, the authorities decided to take the bull by the horns. For example, in Benin, an extensive campaign against cybercrime has been carried out to reduce this scourge. The Beninese arrested in Albi will appear before the Albi Criminal Court on 16 November 2023 to answer for his actions.

In Nigeria, where the phenomenon of fraud is rampant, the authorities decided to join forces with another giant in order to eradicate it. Nigeria wants to fight this scourge by educating 5 million Nigerians. The country has signed a preliminary agreement with Microsoft at the Global Consumer Technology Exhibition (Gitex) in Dubai to educate citizens in digital skills and raise awareness about computer security. The training will reach one million unemployed, 200,000 students, 6,500 developers and 1,700 instructors. The goal is to protect the country’s digital ecosystem and equip its citizens with the skills to navigate the Internet safely.
