Nigerian fraudsters sell UK bank account details

Nigerian criminals are getting hold of hard discs of old PCs from Britain and retrieving internet banking details and selling them out.

Second-hand computers from all over the developed world can be found in virtually every PC market in the Nigerian capital Lagos.

What was once your personal computer has become public property.

In order to combat this growing problem of ID fraud, experts are advising to use a programme to wipe the hard drive before they sell or give away their PC, or remove the hard disc from the computer before it is sold away.
