How I became a yahoo boy

How to become a yahoo boy

If you've been looking for a way to join the Gee boys,  this post is for you. we've taken the time to write this educative piece for you.
But let me take you through my personal journey in the black world before we proceed to the other topics.
It was around that time when I  lost all my remaining money to some yahoo boys who had promised me bet9ja bookings for fixed matches. It was after this event I wanted to become a yahoo boy in order to avenge my money. 
I was going to be left without money over the next few days, although I had some food items left but back then in SBRS one ought to pay always have some cash on him, we weren't allowed to cook in the hostel and one had to take his noodles to the 'mai shayi' guys to help cook at a fee; but I was left with nothing so I had to drink garri more than I used to,  I still had friends who were of help but man wasn't the type to live on someone else's money for long. I just had to look for a way out.  Called back home and threw some 'handbook lies' but it was the middle of the month, salary earners always have no money at this time of the month. I was left with only one option which was to find a way to fend for myself, I was already into blogging and was collecting money for music promotion but this days no artiste was looking my way I just had to look somewhere else.
And whatever I decided on must bring money as soon as possible because I was getting depressed over this. 

How I finally started yahoo yahoo.

'why should I allow myself to suffer when I now have a complete step by step guide to become a yahoo boy (my experience as a victim), I thought slowly and always looked for a reason to rebuke my thoughts till I couldn't bear it any longer,,i haven't stayed for 2 days without cash before but this is getting to a week now and I don't even have hope of getting anything by the end of the following month.
I just had to do this yahoo thing even if it's for once,  I'd quit after getting the money I needed.
There were many Nigerians and Kenyans who like me, believed in 'fixed matches' and would pay someone good money to sell them these information, so this was going to be an easy job for me.

My 3 Steps to becoming a yahoo boy

Day 1: Creating a plan

 I spent that night drafting my yahoo business plan, joined whatsapp with an unregistered number  and created a whatsapp group for the fixed matches. 
I also joined the group that duped me with the new line, but this time my whole aim was for to lift their contents and drop them in my own group. They will do the photoshop and spend time writing good caption while I just have to focus on how to copy and paste them to my own group and make them look real. 

Day 2: Promoting the plan

As with any business, just creating the platform alone can't make you money so one has to get enough members in order to convert the most vulnerable ones among them into clients. I already had a female facebook account that I was using to promote my blog which had even reached the 5k friend limits, it came in handy in my hunt for clients. I shared the link to my whatsapp group with as beautiful a caption as I could think of and before the end of the day,  my group had the population of a country. It was a happy moment as I  saw my yahoo business becoming a successful one.

Day 3: Starting the Gee boy career

On the third day was my action day,  I already had all the big jobs done as explained in day one and two above, It was now time to act according to the plan. Since I had all the photoshop work done by my scammers,  I just had to come online in the morning and evening, edit the messages his posts to his whatsapp group and share them to mine, I then wait for some minutes for the most vulnerable ones in the group to message me,
I did this for one day, two days and before the end of the third day I already got some guys begging in my dm for me to dupe them;  what a life! LOL. 
Like I did myself, a some of them were begging for a price slash but I wanted to make it look real,  like I was really  spending millions to buy the match results and any price slash would make me lose so I refused to cut down the price. I missed those clients but I was in talk with a serious Kenyan guy who was willing to pay but the choice of payment method was what delayed the payment for another day.
I was a novice yahoo boy who didn't know any perfect way to receive cash from another country so I had to consult big brother Google first.
It was in the process of finding a payment method that I quit the business, delete the whatsapp account and threw the SIM card.
I got an unexpected credit  alert from my bank,  my sister had sent me some cash.  I no longer had any reason to continue my vengeance yahoo, although it was had for me to stop when I was at the verge of receiving a good some of money but I just experienced what it meant to be scammed and I wasn't ready to be the reason someone else would rush into the yahoo yahoo business like I did. 

History of yahoo boys, how it all started

History of yahoo boys

In as much as advance-fee fraud gained massive popularity in the 21st century it is worthy of note that it has always been part of the problems that comes with the evolution of the communication sector. In Nigeria, it had started during the pen pal days when one had to exchange letters with a foreigner then it evolved into the internet age when yahoo mail was the only means of communication between the boys and their clients hence the name 'Yahoo boys'. In its early days, boys would sleep in the cybercafe to send emails to random yahoo mail addresses with the hope of a reply, this mails usually come in the form of business deals, love, or request for charity donation. 
One of the earliest yahoo yahoo deals to have been carried out by a Nigerian was a $242 million fraud by Emmanuel Nwude and his crew between 1995 and 1998. With the help of his colleagues and his influence as a union bank director,  he was able to successfully impersonate the then CBN governor and sell a fictional airport to Nelson Sakaguchi,  a Brazil business man.
In the late 90s and early years of the 21st century when there was no mobile internet and cybercafe was the easiest way the boys could connect with their clients, they'd line up at cybercafes and browse through out the night in search of vulnerable westerners to defraud. The government was able to tackle the situation since they were known to have cybercafes as their business  headquarters
The rate of online fraud being carried out in the Nigerian cyberspace gradually declined until the introduction of mobile internet in the country.  
The boys no longer had to spend nights in the cybercafe to communicate with clients. with an internet enabled phone one can now find a maga and pull up a successful scam from the comfort of his room. 
Gradually,  the earlier methods by which they had to be in long contact with clients became archaic and wasn't yielding big profit like it used to due to the growing awareness in western countries so other means had to be devised. This gave birth to a new form of yahoo yahoo which comes in form of hacking and other forms of privacy violations such as the use of phishing web pages  to gain access to financial information which they'd later use to transfer huge sums of money from the victim's account.

Yahoo boys format, techniques  they use to operate

Yahoo boys format

These guys don't have a single format, online fraud comes in very different forms,  from the guy who impersonates with a female identity on facebook, dating sites and other social networks, the guy who creates phishing pages,  the one who directly hacks into online servers of big companies, to the guy who helps the perpetrators cashout big money without trace; this business is actually a big industry. Let us get to see some of the formats used by Yahoo boys but I must tell you that the list of yahoo boys format is enormous, but we'll try our best to update this post from time to time in 7
order to cover up with recently discovered ones.

Dating format:

Dating format

This used to be a very profitable strategy and had rake in a lot of money from America and Britain clients, till it became too popular and it became hard to get the  client to wire money due to increased awareness in these countries about being duped on dating sites. 
Nevertheless, the man behind the screen still find ways to make money from his victims because there are smart individuals who are in this illegal business who are on it 24/7 and are sure to get 1 out of every ten approach. This makes it a no stress business for them because any successful deal that goes through always run in hundreds of thousands or millions of naira.
Let me give you a skeleton illustration of how the yahoo boy dating format works. I am a yahoo boy with an internet enabled phone and laptop in front of me, I want to join an online dating site that only accept users from the foreign country of my target, since I am in Africa I will not be able to access these sites so I need to find a way to do so, I installed good VPN softwares and apps on my devices so that I can change my location to USA in order to access those dating sites that only accepts USA residents, I joined the site with a female identity and began to scan for vulnerable men to lure into sending me money. That's how this format works, hope you understood it though.

Carding format:

Carding format

The term carding was formed from the 'card' in 'credit card' since the main weapon of operation of this format is the credit card of the unsuspecting client which they get either by hacking into the database of online shopping sites or by using phishing pages to lure their victims into giving out their credit card details without a second thought.
They get these details and then use it to make transactions such as buying products online and get them delivered at public or unknown locations which they can later sell and make money from it. 
Let me give you an example. so my clients on the dating sites are no longer paying but I  got this hacking tools that I can use to get people's credit card details or there's this blackhat site where I can buy these details from hackers at cheap rates. I got your details now but I can't send money directly from your card, that will blow my cover and I may get caught but, I can spend your money in a way that will be difficult to trace.  I logged on to a shopping site and created an anonymous account which I will use to buy as many iPhone 12 as I want or as your card can afford to buy and get them delivered to an untraceable location from where it will be  will sent to another unknown location by a picker or a courier service firm.  At the end of the day,  I got some iphones which I can sell for profit. 

Phishing format:

Phishing format

This involves creating websites that look like those the victim uses and having them try their login details on in order to use it and gain access to their account on the website the original website, this kind of phishing attacks is targeted at gaining access to your payment gateways such as PayPal or Skrill, social network and  dating site login,  office account, etc. The likes of Hushpuppi and his crew where experts at phishing.
Let me give you an example of how the yahoo boy phishing format works,  The guys that are using carding format are out of card and I'm the guy who supplies them with card details so I need to get them new credit card details, I created a website that looks exactly like Amazon (they call it 'cloning')  and sent the links in a message to multiple email address, along with this link I will add a mouth-watering deal that the recipient can't refuse; something like giving them 90% off any purchase they make. This is a one in a lifetime kind of deal so many many people will eventually click on the link to get the deal since the email I sent had the same look as mails from amazon. He clicks on the link and  enter his details which I would later use to defraud him or sell I will sell it to the those who will do the job if I don't have that field of expertise.

Hacking format:

Hacking format

This format is strictly for those who are computer savvy, hacking used to be only for programming gurus but the blackhat world evolved to the extent that one can hack without knowing how to code. There are computer programmes that can  perform a whole lot of hacking actions, from scanning for a website's vulnerability to attacking it with such vulnerabilities. This has made it easy for the yahoo boys to access big sites and create a loophole which he can use for his transactions.
Let's say,  after using the phishing format for a while; I decided to take my game further and joined the hacking guys. With the help of my tools I was able to gain access to the database of a bank or let's just say an ISP such as MTN and created a loophole for unlimited browsing which only I can access, I started to activate it for people at a fixed price and make big money from it.

Richest yahoo boys in Nigeria

Nwude Emmanuel

He is one of the earliest, biggest or let's say legendary yahoo boys of all time who has set a record in the world of fraud that is hard to break.
Emmanuel Nwude was a director of Union bank back in the 90s who was in the early days of EFCC convicted for defrauding a Brazilian businessman to the tune of $242m between 1995 and 1998, the third largest crime in banking history.
With the level of connection that came with his position as a director of one of the leading banks in Nigeria and the help of Emmanuel Ofolue, Nzeribe Okoli, and Obum Osakwe, along with the husband and wife duo, Christian Ikechukwu Anajemba and Amaka Anajemba, Nwude was able to successfully impersonate the then governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Paul Ogwuma and convinced Nelson Sakaguchi of the Brazilian Banco Noroeste  to invest $242m in an Abuja airport project which the federal government of Nigeria planned to build. His plan was successful and there was no question asked until 2002 when former president Olusegun Obasanjo ordered the creation of an organization that will keep corruption in check, the EFCC which later started digging into Nwude's crime.  By 2004, Nwude and his colleagues were already in court and even though the case was thrown out of court the first time with EFCC rearresting them on stepping out of the court, this made Nwude to take a step forward and offer the EFCC boss a $75,000 bribe.  This added to his case getting them convicted by the court. Although he managed to get a release the following year I.e 2006 and reclaimed his seized assets worth about 52million dollars which he claimed to have made before committing the crime.  In 2016 he was nabbed and imprisoned for murder and terrorising a neighboring community in his state over a land issue.

Olusegun Aroke AKA H-Money is one of the biggest yahoo boys in Nigeria. He was a student of Kuala Lumpur Metropolitan University, Malaysia. He lived a flamboyant life until an anonymous person petitioned against him to the EFCC, he was investigated, arrested and arraigned before a judge who found him guilty and sentenced him to 24 years in prison.

Starting a yahoo yahoo business is not the problem, being able to survive with the business is the focus you should have.
I think you just need to build up a system of getting your clients that is far from the ideal yahoo boys, G boys pattern.

But Hei! why don’t you channel that same energy you want to waste on yahoo job and do something great with it. I mean to say, if you are smart enough to scam people, you are likely smart to be great in marketing.
Am a fan of legit money. The kind of wealth you can proudly shout “#30 billion in your account” and no one will doubt its source because they know you are real
Not only you, A lot of people are eager to learn how it works and, as a result of that, they search Google everyday for stuffs like:
  1. Learn how to be a Yahoo boy
  2. Yahoo boy orientation
  3. How to start a Yahoo boy career
  4. How to become a successful yahoo boy
and the funniest one is “how can i buy benz with panties?”
I don’t do yahoo but the below article I lifted from Naijahomebased could be of help, you can visit the site for more info
How to become a Yahoo boy:
Yahoo Yahoo is form of business; and just like every other business, you need to invest certain money to buy the gadgets you need to get started.
And, when I say gadgets, I don’t mean an incomplete set. You need virtually all the gadgets I’ll be mentioning in a few lines.
What are those gadgets?
1. Get a good Laptop
First, you need to own a laptop if you want to become successful Yahoo guy. Otherwise, you’ll find it extremely difficult to do certain important things one is only capable of doing on Laptops.
Olamide Bado is or was able to pull off his own Yahoo boy without laptop. nevertheless, I can assure you that you very much need a laptop to become a very successful yahoo boy.
And not just any laptop. You need one with a good firmware. And I can’t recommend any other than Apple laptops.
I love the Windows OS and how they’ve improved on latest versions. However, one must still admit that the Mac is by far the most protected.
Furthermore, Apple laptops tend to have longer batter lives, which will come in handy considering the fact that the Nigerian power supply is still very much in jumbles.
2. Get a good Smartphone
Even after getting a laptop, you still need a mobile phone. Reason is, you don’t need to waste any minute. You need to respond to clients messages fast.
And what if you’re somewhere, maybe in a park or cinema relaxing?
This is why you need a mobile phone.
Again, I recommend an iPhone or iPad. They have better firmware than any other devices you can think of.
The reason you need devices with good firmware is so that you won’t get tracked, hacked or cracked by anyone interested in your downfall.
You wouldn’t want a short-lived success, would you?
3. Get Steady internet connection
A good internet connection is one of the most essential requirements to becoming a Yahoo boy. If you stay in a location that is not 3G+ enabled, then you’ve got to reconsider your decision.
You don’t want to be in the middle of an important conversation with a client and then all of a sudden your network begins to disappoint.
It’s a huge turn off for clients. Personally, I wouldn’t appreciate chatting with someone who replies my messages with more than 10 minutes time lag, especially when I have to deal with that for every message I send.
You need a good network, more so if you claim to live in the city. A person that stays in the city cannot keep complaining of poor network. Bad network is totally un-city-like.
Although you may be able to beat your way around that, you wouldn’t want to give your clients so many clues.
The reason I’ve insisted on you getting those three aforementioned gadgets is that you must never use a cyber café. If you do, you are on your road to failure.
Ask the people that have been there. Cyber cafés are unsafe places. A second computer might be able to see what you’re doing, might be able to check your browsing history, and might end up tipping off anyone interested in seeing you fail.
If you don’t have those three gadgets above, then don’t even think of becoming a yahoo guy.
You will only end up having just yourself to blame.
4. Get a VPN
A virtual private network (VPN) enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. In other words, VPN encrypts your network, thereby increasing the security of the data you transmit over the net.
Or, in Lehman’s terms, VPN hides your IP address or switch to the one you desire.
There are free VPNs on the net; however, they limit so much functionalities with their free plans.
Henceforth, you might be required to purchase one of the premium plans in order to enjoy the full package.
5.  Learn English
If you already have the ability to communicate and write effectively in English, good for you. But if not, then you have to improve before you even think of starting Yahoo! Yahoo!
Your ability to communicate and write effectively isn’t a gadget and it isn’t something you can purchase and own overnight. It’s something you have to develop.
Needless to say, the ability to write and communicate effectively is one of the most essential requirements to becoming a Yahoo boy.
How in the world will you win over clients if you can’t construct simple grammar?
Let’s assume my writing has been extremely poor since you started reading this article. Would you have carried on with it?
Similarly, anyone who really wants to become a Yahoo boy must have the ability to keep people engaged in conversations.
I get turned off by women with poor grammatical constructions. And I’m certain I’m not the only one with that mentality.
Statistics have it that men find women who can communicate effectively more attractive. Similarly, women find men who can communicate effectively extremely attractive.
I’m certain you want to present yourself attractive to your clients in every sense.
If you’re not so good in English, have no fear. make use of the resources on the internet that help with grammar construction.
Grammarly is one of them.
6. Get a foreign phone number
Yahoo boys usually claim to be from the US, UK or any other developed countries. Because people tend to hold citizens of those countries with high regards.
Now, if you choose to be someone from the USA, you must take note that every country have an Area Code.
In essence, you can’t tell me you’re from the USA and when you call me, I’ll notice +234, which is obviously the Nigerian Area Code.
It’s easy to get a foreign phone number using several android apps. One very popular app for getting a foreign phone number is TextPlus. Just search for that on Google PlayStore.
Those are the six most important things you need to start a Yahoo boy career. Other petty requirements include knowing where the ABCs are on the keyboard and having a good sense of humor.
Without further ado, let’s get to the main reason you clicked to read this post.
