Here is the comprehensive list of the 10 wealthiest yahoo yahoo boys in Nigeria, our list features the stinking rich guys and those that possess the best rides and flaunt their wealth on social media and that has also been the talk of the town in Nigeria and beyond.
Though it will be wrong or improper to call the title of this article “The Wealthiest Internet Fraudsters in Nigeria” because they ain’t guilty until found guilty by a court of law. Nevertheless, we have some immensely rich boys in Nigeria that are not so vocal i.e they don’t flaunt their wealth and it makes it difficult for you to tag them as yahoo boys, some don’t even have social media presence.
The ones listed in this post are well-known yahoo boys and they have made names for themselves, even have good social media presence which serves as an avenue for them to showcase their wealth (cars, lavish lifestyle, monies, drinks, rides, etc). They are called alleged yahoo guys in Nigeria mainly because the source of their wealth is shady or unknown.
You might have been wondering what yahoo yahoo means or who a yahoo boy is. Let us quickly shed some lights into that;
Who is a Yahoo boy?
A Yahoo Boy or yahoo yahoo boy is a person either male or female who illegally swindles people of their hard-earned money or an individual that engages in fraudulent activities.
These guys are also called hustlers, Gee Boy, YY, Yahoo Yahoo, 419, Gee and so on. The word “Yahoo Boy” is coined from the popular Yahoo, mainly because they make use of fake yahoo email accounts to connect with their victims, though they have moved far beyond that and are now using other social media accounts like Facebook, Gmail, Instagram, Twitter and so on for fraudulent activities.
As we all know, the internet is a vast space which gives everyone the opportunity to make money even at the comfort of your home, you can also learn how to make money on the internet, but in the case of the yahoo boys, they don’t go through legitimate methods. The Gee boys make use of the internet with various scamming formats to dupe their victims which they might have initially started a friendly relationship with, and then after gaining their trust they strike and vanish into thin air. Most of their victims are usually investors, entrepreneurs, widows, widower and so on. After successfully scamming their victims then you see them lavish the money, buying cars, spending on wine, prostitutes and so on, it is known that most of them don’t even utilize the money properly.
Without further ado, let us take an insightful look at the top 10 yahoo boys in Nigeria and their pictures:

We have some other Gee boys in Nigeria that are not listed here but we’ve brought out the most popular ones and those ones with a huge fan base. It is a known fact that fraud is not a thing one should involve himself in but we can attribute the steps which these guys have taken to the current hardship in the country, though that isn’t an excuse to swindle people of their hard-earned money.
Shaddy earnings are not a good lifestyle to emulate and the worst is that the majority of the youths do praise them for illegal money they own and also they are well praised by most of our musicians thereby encouraging younger ones to start a career in crime. It is noted that musicians like Zlatan Ibile, Naira Marley, Small Doctor, 9ice and other musicians have been singing the praises of these Yahoo boys and that is a way of promoting fraud. Naira Marley and Zlatan were arrested by EFCC and later released.
