The negative perspective of  Nigerian youths at the international community keeps increasing with several cases of internet fraud allegations.

The cases of internet fraud by some topflight youths like Hushpupi, Mompha and  Invictus Obi who had been indicted recently by several foreign countries are good examples of the negative image of Nigerians.
