EFCC watching

Within the video footage, a group of individuals were observed inside a room, where a laptop screen prominently showcased the face of the actress. However, the face displayed on the laptop did not actually belong to her.

As one of the guys activated the camera and positioned himself in front of the laptop, instead of his own face, the screen presented Alexandra Daddario’s visage.

While the genuine faces of the other individuals appeared as expected, one person who directly faced the laptop camera revealed that he was replicating the exact actions performed by the woman on the television. This cleverly created the impression for any listeners that he was, in fact, the actress herself.

Netizens were wowed, especially those into cybercrime. See some of their reactions:
