Popular social media commentator, Daniel Regha has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC) to introduce a reward system that will make it easier for them to apprehend internet fraudsters aka Yahoo Boys.
He recommended that the EFCC should start offering cash rewards to people who disclose vital information about Yahoo boys to the commission.
Regha pegged the amount at N1million and noted that it will sufficiently motivate Nigerians to report fraudsters who may be their friends or family members.
He wrote; “The EFCC should start offering a cash reward to anyone who reports yahoo boys, a significant amt like N1m; This will get many people to snitch on friends, relatives & neighbours.
The war against yahoo boys should be taken seriously cos these cybercriminals are nothing but monsters.”

Meanwhile, a Nigerian recently said she prefers getting married to an internet fraudster who is into Yahoo Plus than being with a man who has a regular job.
She explained that Yahoo Plus Boys usually cash out with the help of jazz so they which is a guaranteed way of making sure there is endless supply of money.
She said Yahoo boys are better than working class men because they can always renew their wealth whenever it looks like money is getting exhausted.
According to her, if a working class man goes broke, he has no immediate way of getting rich or escaping financial problems.
The young lady stated this during a street interview as she further said that the fraudsters have family members they can use to replenish their riches, whereas the guys with normal jobs don’t have relatives which is why they are struggling day and night at work.
She also said she likes the way fraudsters pamper their girlfriends, take them out in their cars and how they act like cute couples with the babe in the front seat.
When asked if she would be comfortable staying with a Yahoo boy that is unable to make money for about three years, she rebuked the idea of such happening to her boyfriend.
She, however, reiterated that the benefit of being with him is that if the money gets exhausted he can always use the jazz and renew it.
The interviewer also asked if she is not scared of the fact that EFCC operatives often go after Yahoo boys, but she said she has no business with them.
