Meanwhile, a Nigerian pastor recently warned internet fraudsters popularly called Yahoo Boys, to desist from their ways or risk facing the wrath of karma.

He issued the warning during a sermon in church, adding that though many do not believe in Karma, it actually exists.

The clergy man said those who are enjoying the proceeds of fraud will one day start enduring suffering that they will not understand.

The man of God said he understands the things of the spirit and he has forseen an unpleasant future for fraudsters.

He also mentioned how some people are audacious enough to even use money gotten through yahoo to train their children. He warned them to be careful because the lavish lifestyle will be short-lived.
