Internet fraud is a global issue and has posed challenges to the safe use of cyberspace. Cybercrime (prohibition and protection etc.) Act 2015 was enacted to regulate and guide the use of the internet in Nigeria, nonetheless, the challenge of internet fraud is on a daily increase. This study focused on Cyber laws that have been advanced to abridge the menace caused by internet fraud. The cyber laws of other cyber-secured countries are advanced through policies, approaches, and practices of the enacted law by the citizens and concerned authorities. This has created a safe online environment that ensures security to users of cyberspace. Adopting these strategies into the Nigerian Cyberlaw would invariably curb this challenging development in the country. The Committee on review of National Cybersecurity Policy and Strategy should enhance the Cybercrime Act 2015 by adopting advanced cyber laws practiced in other countries.
