Who are yahoo boys?

For Nigerian law, yahoo boys are people who carry out 419 frauds. This number refers to the article of the Nigerian Criminal Code, which directly deals with fraud.

Internet fraud has grown like wildfire in African countries such as Nigeria and Ghana in early 2000. And later spread to Europe, America, China and India. This is to say that there is the presence of online fraudsters in almost every nation- whether black or white!

This new found profession has risen to become a viral trend amongst young people especially people under the age of 16. If you conduct a survey today in the country while picking about 10 children under the age of 15. Ask them what they would like to become and most of them would reply “Yahoo Yahoo”.

Heck! a viral video went super wild and received many promotions after a young boy of about 9 year old was asked what profession he would like to dive into and he replied “Walaitalai Mo Fe sashe, Olorun!” meaning “Truth to God, I want to become an internet fraudster”

You would be shocked to discover that Yahoo boys have become surprisingly respected people in our society. In fact , many young Nigerians who are into internet fraud now buy expensive cars, date expensive chicks, carry Olosho( prostitutes) houses, ball every night by buying caskets( expensive drinks in clubs), jewellery, etc. Some even go crazy by paying a million plus for drinks not more than 10 thousand naira- Can you imagine? That’s to show that the business is a lucrative one.

Because of its fast rise in trend, we now see it as “NORMAL”. It has become the only means of livelihood for thousands of youth as unemployment continue to rise on a daily basis. A Nigerian yahoo boy expert in Internet security defines the term “yahoo boys” as every individual who commit various shady deals with the help of Internet. For many years 419 schemes have been effectively duping many foreigners in countries such as UK, USA, CANADA etc.

According to police statistics, thousands of undergraduates in universities have now become internet fraudsters. This con artists like to refer to  themselves as“ENTREPRENEURS”. A rich yahoo boy is an example for the youth for the type of way of life they want to have. Thus, many of such con artists have already actually become productive in this line of work.

What is yahoo boy format of work?

Being afraid of unemployment, many young Nigerians consider Internet fraud as a means to escape poverty in a country like Nigeria.

In the past years, public cafes in Nigeria were the main places where yahoo boys carried out internet scam. Due to disturbance during police raids, yahoo boys just moved to other locations and decided to begin to use laptops. During the day, they attend their respective classes in schools and universities in the daytime and carry out frauds at nights.

It is no wonder that so many young people are interested in how to become a successful yahoo boy in Nigeria. The countless news about wealthy life and the extravagant lifestyles led by scammers are what motivate the mass involvement of the adolescents in different cyber-crimes.

Ask yourself this:

Why do I want to become a yahoo boy? If the reason is to make money, pay your bills, carry olosho and flaunt bundles of cash on social media, to tell your friends that YOU DON BLOW, you’ll only end up in destruction.

Do you know what makes up a beautiful life? It’s the fact that you’re at peace with what you do (handling legitimate business and transactions while still doing good). Until you do this, you can never experience happiness and joy. So what are you waiting for? Are you already into yahoo or yahoo plus? It’s never too late to give it all away today and have a change of life– a life full of happiness and joy.

“What’s the use of having thousands, millions, billions and trillions if you end up sad, miserable, killed every day by guilt and alone? What use is money if you can’t sleep peacefully at night without reciting incantations, going to see ONE BABA, holding one voodoo doll or trying to cover your tracks? What use is money if there’s no moment or daily rest?” During the day, you live a NORMAL life but during the night, you live like an ANIMAL.

The world often think that these 419 boys have no worries. But believe you me, many of them wish they could turn the hands of time. They wish they can undo the damages and pains they have caused many. Sadly, going back is hard when you are into the USUAL FRAUD but almost impossible when you are already into YAHOO PLUS. Once you’ve joined, there’s no going back. The cries, pains and curses of those you scammed will haunt you till you die. Those who lived to tell the story usually suffer a worse fate (a state worse than death). It only takes a strong mind to ball back to life again.

As a yahoo boy, death becomes your favourite friend. Why is this so? You might ask. I have spoken and been with lots of students who are into this line of business and honestly, they are living and going through hell here on earth. The burden of worry and frequent watching over their shoulders is so much that the only way to feel human and a bit of distraction from this is through the abuse of alcohol and drugs. Many of them lie on money, eat money and ball in money. Others lavish them on cars, women, Shoes, cloths, travel, liabilities and gold chain… in their desperation to feel a bit of happiness and yet, they can’t… It is very evident that you cannot give what you do not have. With such an exorbitant and clearly undisciplined lifestyle, death keeps drawing closer and closer like a thief in the night.

You might say: But money is power, if person no get money Na nothing. A popular musician once said: “If you no get money, hide your face” but I am saying “If you get illegal money, your face don hide”.

If by chance you’re take walk in the shoes of a yahoo boy just for a single day, you might end up committing suicide before the end of the day despite all the money at your disposal. You cannot even begin to imagine the kind of depression you’ll pass through. You might think that having no money is depressing; but having DIRTY MONEY is even more depressing. I pray their shoes don’t fit you because only alcohol, drugs and women are what’s keeping many of them sane. That’s when you’ll know that depression have different levels and degrees.

When you’ve made up to 30 BILLION in the account or less, your parents, guardian, concerned friends and other people around you will surely ask about the exact job you do that fetches you such a huge amount of money. When this occurs, lying becomes inevitable- You lie your way out of problems.

In other words, lying will become your middle name. The worst part is; the more you lie, the more you have to lie to cover your lies (lies upon lies; what a miserable life). You better be ready to remember your lies to avoid contradicting yourself in the future.

A wise man once said; a good liar is one with a good memory

Okay! You now have money, yet you feel insecure, you feel restricted on expressing how you feel or asking for what you want. This is a regretful time in your life when you’ll get to understand that money is not everything.

Nigerian 419 artists are usually known by their careless lifestyles. You see them with lots of FAKE BOYS and GIRLS who move around with them just to take a cut of their money. You see them with the latest phones especially IPhone’s, cars like Benz (special taste for colour white and black), and gold chains. If you’re very conversant with social media, their flaunting is enough to make you feel as if you are lazy regardless of the amount you make or send you on a bank robbery.

In reality, their life is directly opposite to what they portray online. They are only trying to make themselves feel a whole better by making you wish you were like them. However, every night, they feel like giving everything up and starting life anew. They suffer intelligence and emotional pains on a daily basis. That’s an additional attribute that has made their life more miserable.

Before you become a yahoo boy, especially here in Nigeria, prepare your mind to feel the ugly repeated sting of loneliness. Walking with lots of friends isn’t company… It’s working with people who you can share everything with. Yahoo boys can’t and that’s no doubt the no.1 reason they feel lonely all the time despite having countless friends around.

You heard me right. What could be more heavenly than sleeping peacefully like a new-born baby in a bed despite being broke? Apart from happiness and love, money cannot buy a peaceful rest and sleep. Before you become a 419, prepare yourself because you are going to be hit by a devastating insomnia.

After all “there is no sleep for the wicked”…

Each time you close your eyes, images of CLIENTS you scammed will come to mind. You’ll know no good sleep no matter how much you force yourself. I would rather be poor my whole life than not have a peaceful sleep. Yes! Money must be made, Man must hustle but I don’t joke with my sleep. You can call me lazy, Yeah thanks, and you don’t even need to tell me sef (I already know). If you can afford not to sleep for days, weeks, months and years, then go ahead and become a yahoo boy.


Have you heard someone say that nothing is easy in this world? That person is absolutely right. I’m yet to see something worthwhile that comes easy. Yahoo or perhaps, scamming people is not easy. It deals with lots of tricks, cover ups, formats, technicalities, brainwashing, juju(charms), finance, craftiness, deception, lying and hard work. In fact, doing all these isn’t a guarantee that you’ll hit money immediately won’t still guarantee you making money as a Yahoo Yahoo. To step your game, you might even need to work with a team of 419 scammers-Young men and women who will stay in a room all day facing their laptops and going HARDCORE!. This is business and it requires everything a business requires to succeed. In fact, yahoo business is pretty harder than legitimate businesses. Don’t you agree?

Why become an internet fraudster when there are lots of legitimate and easy businesses that can make you loads of money here in Nigeria? Why choose SANITY over INSANITY, TORMENT over JOY all in the name of making money? Honestly, it takes more skills to succeed as a yahoo boy than it takes to start-up a profitable legitimate business here in Nigeria.

I can remember when i was feeling oppressed in school by Gee boys. That time, lots of responsibilities, wants, needs and desires wanted to drive me nuts. I did consider doing yahoo business. Yes, I once wanted to become a yahoo boy. There is no shame in admitting this but I was more determined to make my money legally (the right way).

If a person like Chief Obafemi Awolowo can become a millionaire despite coming from a poor background, why can’t I? When I started my online business, money started rolling in bit by bits…. However, making enough money didn’t even improve my mood or made me any happier. I was like; is that it? Really?

That’s how you’ll feel when you eventually get that millions you’re craving for. The feeling will be far worse when the money is gotten in an illegal way. That’s also when you’ll understand that money isn’t truly worth the sacrifice we give to it. You don’t have to sacrifice your joy, happiness, family, health and security just because of a fiat money. It’s your life and you only get to LIVE IT ONCE
