Challenges: both computerisation and miniaturisation had some negative effects on cyber-security, as these were being exploited by fraudsters, especially using ‘advance fee fraud;’ popularly called 419. Solutions: Using LBA and further digitisation of the GSM Mobile country codes down to City/Area codes along with GSM Mobile/Global Positioning System (GPS) authentications. Where necessary, these could be combined with the use of a web-based Secret Sharing Scheme for services with very high security demands
