Internet fraud is not a job
A Nigerian digital marketer known as Edems has called out internet fraudsters commonly referred to as Yahoo Boys.
He says the act of engaging in fraud (Yahoo Yahoo) can never be categorised as a regular job.
According to Edem, anybody who is defrauding other people of their hard earned money is just a thief.
The content creator stated this via his Twitter account and stirred controversy which led to some people attacking him.
He wrote; “Yahoo isn’t a job, you’re just a thief”

@Luckyflows1; Lol this would make sense if you’re talking to a generation that isn’t materialistic.
Meanwhile, a Nigerian lady has said she prefers getting married to an internet fraudster who is into Yahoo Plus than being with a man who has a regular job.
She explained that Yahoo Plus Boys usually cash out with the help of jazz so they which is a guaranteed way of making sure there is endless supply of money.
She said Yahoo boys are better than working class men because they can always renew their wealth whenever it looks like money is getting exhausted.
According to her, if a working class man goes broke, he has no immediate way of getting rich or escaping financial problems.
The young lady stated this during a street interview as she further said that the fraudsters have family members they can use to replenish their riches, whereas the guys with normal jobs don’t have relatives which is why they are struggling day and night at work.
She also said she likes the way fraudsters pamper their girlfriends, take them out in their cars and how they act like cute couples with the babe in the front seat.
When asked if she would be comfortable staying with a Yahoo boy that is unable to make money for about three years, she rebuked the idea of such happening to her boyfriend.
She, however, reiterated that the benefit of being with him is that if the money gets exhausted he can always use the jazz and renew it.
The interviewer also asked if she is not scared of the fact that EFCC operatives often go after Yahoo boys, but she said she has no business with them.
