Joan said she has received as many as 100 unsolicited emails from people she doesn’t know but is pretty sure they are yahoo boys.
Yahoo boys is the Nigerian phrase for scammers who fleece unsuspecting members of the public of their money through online fraud.
According to Joan, many of those contacting her claim to be working for the American Central Intelligence Agency, CIA.
Joan is obviously wiser than the yahoo boys, as she asked them to stop contacting her and wasting their time.
