An Oyibo lady has gone online to share a helpful tip with foreigners who may find themselves being contacted by internet fraudsters commonly referred to as Yahoo Boys.

In a video she posted on social media, she said that there is a key word foreigners who are targets of scam can use to scare off Yahoo Boys.

According to the elderly woman, she is speaking from experience as Yahoo Boys have tried scamming her in the past.

The woman said that when they are chatting with someone they suspect is a fraudster, they can use the Yoruba slang”Alaye” to give the person the impression that they are chatting with another scammer posing as a white person.
