“This is totally illegal,This is a well-connected web of global scammers taking advantage of people to get the data which they later use to do their things,” said MP Shabirr.
According to shabirr,World Coin is a trap targeting gullible youths whose biometric data will be extracted using a special scanning machine and used to commit capi offences such as terrorism.
He says the purpose of scanning is to create a plastic lens and pupil in an attempt to avoid being traced by the investigators.
He further stated that as lawmaker, he had moved to the parliament and tabled a bill that subsequently banned the cryptocurrency.
He told the youths to shun easy money, adding that the fact that money was being given to get an eye scan is enough to trigger curiosity
