Abstract

ABSTRACT This paper examines the relationship between modern technology and the multiplicity of fraud. Specifically, it argues that the involvements of sizeable Nigerians in crime is not empirically tied to their dispositions and psychopathologies, these attributes are widely believed to be responsible for getting one into trouble with the law, but it rather identifies the socio-economic deterioration mostly prevalent in the Nigeria society as the most explicable factor intensifying the participation of most Nigerian especially youths in cyber fraud. It borrows from the theoretical ideas of Derek Cornish and Ronald Clarke on the contributions of the environment to the incidence and the rising rate of crime globally. The paper finally proffers few pragmatic solutions to the problem of cyber fraud in the e-business environment.
