Investigations have revealed that the criminal organization’s strategy is to pretend to be well-known individuals, such as ministers of state, members of parliament (MPs), heads of governmental organizations, and corporate entities on social media in order to defraud unwary victims of various sums of money by promising them jobs, scholarships, the publication of false promotional advertisements, and the sale of goods, among other things.
