Nigerian filmmaker and philanthropist, Faith Ojo, has taken to social media to address online scammers using her photos to create Instagram accounts where they promote Binomo and Binary businesses.
Binomo and Binary businesses sell the idea to unsuspecting clients that they can get a 100% return on monies invested. Most of the scammers who operate on Instagram use fake identities and have defrauded a lot of people and hacked the accounts of some.
Faith, whose photos have also been used for these scamming activities, recently shared a video in which she warned these scammers to desist from using her photos.
In the video, she also advised people against falling for such scams and said she was working with the EFCC to get the perpetrators.
