Worried married woman


"Dear Pulse,

My name is Laura and I have been married to this wonderful man, IK, for the past two years but in recent times, I am no more comfortable with his lifestyle.

People look at me differently anytime they see me and make snide comments. I have had the police and the EFCC harass me anytime they come for IK and he is no where to be found.

My husband is an unrepentant Internet fraudster and I am in two minds on what to do. I know many will ask whether I did not know what he was into before marrying him and I will say that I did not know at the initial stage when we were dating.

He had a male boutique which was doing very well, at least by his standards but little did I know that the shop was just a front for his criminal activities.

It was few months into our marriage that I realised that he was really into big time fraud. Aside defrauding people, I also found out that he was into some fetish acts. When I confronted him, he said it was just to get the 'maga', as he called his victims, to pay.

I have threatened to leave him before and he always begged me to give him the last chance but he is not in any hurry to stop.

Now I am contemplating telling the police about what my husband is doing.

Do you think this is the right step for me to take?
