Scammers in Mexico are worse than Nigerian internet fraudsters, popularly called Yahoo Boys, Nigerian singer and dancer Anita Obidi Korra, professionally known as Korra Obidi, has said.
In a Facebook live video, Obidi lamented how her credit card was allegedly debited multiple times at an airport restaurant in Mexico.

This, according to her, happened after she used the card to buy Margarita drink, at the restaurant.
She said yahoo boys were learning, as she did not expect such alleged fraud in Mexico.
In her words, “Guys, first thing has happened in Mexico. I just got seven notifications…remember that place…the place that had the Margarita ville…that I bought a $35 Margarita from? They have been charging this card for different fast foods, $225 here, $225 there. I’ve not even eaten dinner and someone is already been charging my card for different things.
“Remember that place that I told you that I felt like I was scammed; at the airport…the place that had a drink for $10 and all of a sudden the drink is $35. I just got a security alert from wings stop…someone has spent my credit card on some wings, and then I got another alert for some fast food, $285 of my money on wings.
“This is worse than Lagos, we are learning in their hands. Yahoo dey learn for their hand. Yahoo yahoo boys need to come and learn work from Mexicans’ hands.
“I’ve called the Bank of America. Thank God for the most amazing bank ever. I called them in five seconds, someone picked up the call and they blocked this card. I can’t eat, but they said they’re going to give me my money back.”
