8775 Their strategies include collaboration with security agents and bank officials, local and international networking, and the use of voodoo [emphasis added]. It was clear that most were involved in online dating and buying and selling with fake identities. The Yahoo boys usually brag, sag, do things loudly, drive flashy cars, and change cars frequently. They turn their music loud and wear expensive and latest clothes and jewelry. They also have a special way of dressing and relate, they spend lavishly, love material things, and go to clubs. They are prominent at night parties picking prostitutes at night. They also move in groups of two, three, and four when going to eateries. They speak different coded languages and use coded words such as 8775 Mugun, 8776 8775 Maga, 8776 and 8775 Maga don pay, 8776 which all means 8775 the fool (., their victim) has paid. 8776
Also known as “advance fee” and “Nigerian letter” scams , 969 schemes have been around for many years and are surprisingly effective at duping people. The schemes themselves violate Section 969 of the Nigerian criminal code, hence the name. Nigerian romance scammers often will troll online dating sites using stolen photos and posing as attractive . or . residents working in Nigeria or Ghana, asking for money to further their studies, care for sick relatives, or some such sob story.
Over the past decade or so, the United States has cracked down on Nigerian Internet scams. Western Union, for example, would not allow me to wire my Nigerian fixer an advance portion of his pay because, the operator told me, I was likely the victim of fraud. Still, Nigerian fraudsters manage to dupe Americans into forking thousands of dollars over to complete strangers each year. In 7566, the FBI received close to 85,555 reports of advance fee ploys, called 8775 969 scams 8776 after the section of the Nigerian criminal code that outlaws fraud. The agency received over 9,555 complaints of advance fee romance scams in 7567, with victim losses totaling over $55 million. Nigerians aren 8767 t the only ones committing international advance fee fraud, but nearly one-fifth of all such scams originate in the West African country. The scams often involve phony lottery winnings, job offers, and inheritance notices.
While many of the victims of this keylog service appear to be 969 scammers, I found that just as often an account was apparently being used to keep tabs on trusting Americans who were being duped into sending money overseas, either in pursuit of some stolen riches or more often in hopes of finally meeting someone they had only met online. Often when I reviewed logs chronicling some sad situation in which a woman or man in the United States was apparently the victim of a romance scam, the identifier in the 8775 note 8776 field of each keylog record was 8775 picture. 8776 It seems clear that these romance scammers are infecting their bogus sweethearts by disguising the keylogger as pictures of themselves.
One final note: It took a crazy amount of time to pore through all this data and to do so many Facebook lookups. It would have taken an eternity, had it not been for the help of Damon McCoy , assistant professor of computer science at George Mason University (my alma mater). McCoy and his band of willing grad students agreed to help with the laborious work of conducting thousands of Facebook account lookups, and then finding new Facebook accounts to do more lookups when Facebook suspended accounts for conducting too many lookups (the threshold seems to be around 55 lookups before Facebook locks an account for 79 hours). I 8767 d also like to recognize the work of KrebsOnSecurity reader Patrick Madigan, who helped with lookups and with some of the research that will feature in the next story in this series.
8775 Another level of this is referred to as 8766 Yahoo Plus Plus, 8767 which. involves the use of human parts and may need kidnapping other human beings for rituals, which is not necessary in ‘‘Yahoo Plus.’’ In Yahoo Plus Plus, the use of things such as their finger nails, rings, carrying of corpses, making incision on their body, sleeping in the cemetery, citing of incantation, using of their fingers for rituals, and having sex with ghosts are common. A few of the informants, however, denied that they use voodoo in the business, whereas others affirmed their use of voodoo. 8776
As noted in the above-mentioned academic paper ( 8775 Understanding Cybercrime Perpetrators and the Strategies They Employ in Nigeria 8776 ), the term 8775 Yahoo Boys 8776 is the nickname given to categories of men in Nigeria who specialize in various types of cybercrime. According to that paper, in which researchers spent time with and interviewed at least 95 active Yahoo Boys, most of the cybercrime perpetrators in Nigeria are between the age of 77 and 79, and are undergraduates who have distinct lifestyles from other youths.
Religion is a major issue that causes enormous problems in Nigeria, because about slightly over half the country is Muslim, about % according to best estimates, and nearly all of the other half of the country are Christians, although there are still a small number of Nigerians who practice one of several pre-colonial native religions. The nearly even split between Christian and Muslims has led to serious violence, approaching the level of civil war in some areas, however it is difficult to know how much religion really comes into play when Nigerian girls are looking to date foreign men.
The best rule for Nigerian dating, like most things, to keep religion in the back of your mind, but do not let it sour everything. Many Nigerian women are much less doctrinaire about religion than you would expect in such a conservative culture, and if you are religiously conservative you will probably be surprised by the beliefs of a religiously conservative Nigerian lady. They might very well be different from you beliefs, so try to keep an open mind or at least be prepared even if your bride's religious beliefs are extremely important.
Thanks for this exposure but let us get this straight. over 95% of Nigerian graduates are unemployed and the govt is taking billions to your countries unchecked, what do you expect these men to do? sit and watch themselves starve to death? when Bush visited Nigeria in 7556, he sealed the face of corruption in the nigerian oil sector and legalised Nigerian corruption internationally so our problem is you. You people have taken all our resources and caused corruption to be the order of the day. Who is to blame? To be more clear, it is these men who are more patriotic than the government because they bring money to help their families whil the govt takes away with the collaboration of Europe and America. So go judge yourself before you judge us.

They make a tidy living. Sheye and Danjuma say they are each worth about $65,555, in a country where more than 75 percent of the population lives on less than $7 a day. They say they 8767 d make a lot more than that, but they blow much of their income entertaining 8775 clients 8776 in order to convince the victims they 8767 re legit. They 8767 ll fly potential marks to Ghana, for example, and put them up in a fancy hotel while they meet with Sheye and Danjuma 8767 s faux business partners there. Since Ghana is a less corrupt country, they say, victims are more likely to enter into a business deal with a Ghanaian than a Nigerian. The two say they own homes worth about a quarter million dollars each.
More traditionally, these miscreants pretend to be an employee at a Nigerian bank or government institution and claim to need your help in spiriting away millions of dollars. Those who fall for the ruses are strung along and milked for increasingly large money transfers, supposedly to help cover taxes, bribes and legal fees. As the FBI notes, once the victim stops sending money, the perpetrators have been known to use the personal information and checks that they received to impersonate the victim, draining bank accounts and credit card balances. 8775 While such an invitation impresses most law-abiding citizens as a laughable hoax, millions of dollars in losses are caused by these schemes annually, 8776 the FBI warns. 8775 Some victims have been lured to Nigeria, where they have been imprisoned against their will along with losing large sums of money. The Nigerian government is not sympathetic to victims of these schemes, since the victim actually conspires to remove funds from Nigeria in a manner that is contrary to Nigerian law. 8776
BestRecovery gives customers instructions on how to use a provided tool to create a custom Windows-based keylogger and then disguise it as a legitimate screensaver application. New victims are indexed by date, time, Internet address, country, and PC name. Each keylogger instance lets the user specify a short identifier in the 8775 note 8776 field (failing to manually enter an identifier in the note field appears to result in that field being populated by the version number of the keylogger used). Interestingly, many of the victim PCs have a curious notation: 8775 Yahoo Boys 8776 .
you americans and non- african 8767 s polluted our country with corruption, its still our money that our leaders take to your country, so who is holier, well i wouldnt blame the yahoo boys, cos if you insist nigeria is corrupt then you people are the cause.. when pointing a finger mind you 8 are pointing back at you this boys are trying to stay alive with the dilapidated state of the economy
The two fraudsters make most of their money duping fellow Nigerians. (They insist that tricking people is not the same as stealing. 8775 We don 8767 t thief, 8776 Danjuma says.) They told me about one elaborate scam, called Elawala (or 8775 Let 8767 s go 8776 in Igbo, one of the languages spoken in Nigeria), that they occasionally pull on their countrymen. It involves a taxi cab, a 8775 juju man, 8776 magic charms, and a huge bag of cash (and it 8767 s way too complicated to explain here). Another go-to scam involves a taxi cab, a French man, a locked box filled with gold, and very expensive pliers. (Ditto.) They asked to hire me out for a day for one of their cons because, they said, my white skin would bolster their credibility. 8775 Black man believes that white man is reality, 8776 Danjuma explains.
please note that the person with all this stories is a staff working with privaterecovery or bestrecovery who now breakup from them and now have his own site, all this sties is to kill the image of privaterecovery or bestrecovery because his own keylogging site is not patronised beware of fake and bad people like him, because he personally right back to him introducing a new keylogging site to me which happens to be his, but i don 8767 t use site and i don 8767 t have such time
