Owning to the recent Economic breakdown caused by the increase in the price of petroleum, bank officials have sent a note of warning to their POS Agents all accross the Country. This update is against fraudulent activities that is at its peak now. This activity is also expected to increase as things are going from bad to worse. Hunger and poverty are now the order of the day. People must improvise and look for ways of survival no matter what it takes. Nigeria is said to be the most significant example of A Jungle; Where only the Fittest Survives.

Many other dubious individuals may now seek refuge in taking advantage of their innocence to fill their pockets with ill gotten wealth.
