David Gyedu, a cybersecurity expert, has warned against abusing the internet, particularly to deceive naïve individuals.
Mr. Gyedu believes that no matter what Virtual Private Network (VPN) one uses in his questionable operations, he cannot get away with a crime committed online.
“I want to tell people and reassure people that there is no such thing as complete anonymity, no matter how expensive the tools are.” Because individuals claim to utilise VPN. Yes, live VPNs are encrypted, but if they are encrypted, the police may obtain the source code with a court order, or with the encrypted VPN, they can obtain the VPN vendor, write to them, and obtain some type of data [information] from them,” the cybersecurity expert explained.
David Gyedu told the media on Tuesday, May 16, 2023.
His remarks follow the extradition of Hajia4Reall from the United Kingdom for her suspected involvement in a $2 million romance fraud targeting elderly single Americans.
The Socialite is facing a six-count indictment for her participation in a number of romance scams as well as laundering the revenues of those schemes.
“We charged Ms. Montrage with participating in multiple romance scams, many of which targeted elderly victims, resulting in more than $2 million in fraudulent funds under her control.”
“Romance scams, particularly those targeting the elderly, are a major concern.” “The FBI will work tirelessly to hold criminals accountable in the criminal justice system,” stated FBI Assistant Director in Charge Michael J. Driscoll.
Mr. Gyedu stated that the FBI will soon arrest Hajia4Reall’s collaborators.
He also remarked that the internet is not a breeding place for criminals and urged fraudsters to change their ways.
“So even if now we have the chance and the law and enforcement authority are requesting your details on Instagram it will baffle your mind that if records to even your current location, the mobile phone you are using, a lot of information and not to say that being surprising on Facebook, we have something called offline activity. Yes, you can you have done something on Facebook with VPN, offline they are still getting access to whatever you are doing.
“There are so many tracking and I can bet you on this that if she is guilty then she didn’t do it alone she’s a number of people involved and probably they might not be in Ghana outside Ghana somewhere all over around,” he noted.
