Who are Yahoo Boys?

Yahoo Boys are online fraudsters based in Nigeria. Their nickname comes from the email service Yahoo, which became popular in Nigeria in the 2000s, and they are descendants of the infamous 419 scammers, who, first with letters and later in emails, promised to help strangers get rich for a nominal advance fee.

In August 2023, about 12 suspected Yahoo Boys were arrested in Port Harcourt, the River State capital.
