According to recent reports, The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has arrested a young girl for allegedly selling her Facebook account and pictures to internet fraudsters. It was reported that the young girl named Precious Iwuji was arrested in the Sabo Area of Kaduna State and she’ll be charged to court along with other arrested fraudsters.
Precious only crime was selling her Facebook account to fraudsters which to some it may seem unfair but according to the law, she’s an accomplice of the crime. Precious may or may not be aware of the motive of her buyers but the arrest of precious is a stern warning to all social media users who engage in account trading.
With this new development, you don’t have to directly get involve in a crime to be arrested by the law. Just as a man who sells guns to thieves would be apprehended along with thieves, anyone who sells his or her social media account to fraudsters is indirectly a fraudster and would be arrested by the law.
