The first time I heard about yahoo formats, I was wondering what it was, till a friend told me it is just a slang that shows someone who is begging for money and uses these excuses to make the person give you money. These excuses are called format and they are different. These are the latest yahoo billing formats update used.
For hustlers who make a living by begging people for money online, it is becoming difficult because nobody wants to give again. Based on my investigation, I will be listing out the popular yahoo billing formats that works. If you don’t want to give money, then you should be aware of these formats. If you are the one begging, then you can use these excuses.
If you are the kind that already knows some outdated yahoo formats like the “I haven’t eaten for 3 days” that’s great but you need to also know the latest formats to be able to spot them when you see one.

The Latest Yahoo Formats Updates.
Meanwhile, if you haven’t figured out how to identify a scammer, then you should read this post.
You probably use the iTunes gift card a lot. Sadly, scammers have made a format out of it to scam you. This is the latest scamming format for scammers interested in collecting gift cards from their client, which is the typical message you receive asking you to send gift cards.
I have written a blog post exposing how scammers collect iTunes gift cards from clients, but this post also gives you a detailed approach as to how they go about it.
If a scammer is looking for the format to make sure their client sends gift cards, then they can use the example below to do that.
Example of the Gift-Card Format;
How scammers collect iTunes from clients when they are chatting with you:
I was notified last week that all the firmware in my phone needs upgrading, including my Facebook and my camera that I can’t be able to take pics or chat with my phone anymore until I get my phone upgraded before I can make use of it, right now I’m using my friend phone to chat with you because when I took my phone to a repairer he told me All I need to get is an iTunes card…
As you can see above, the message precisely requests a gift card because it’s usually untraceable and a scammer can get away with it after exchanging on a gift card website.
This is another top scam format that a yahoo scammer can use to make money off our ignorance. The idea behind this classified format is that a scammer is dealing with classified ads to use to scam, which is important you know to be safe.
When using the classified format, the first thing a scammer does is visit any website where they post classified ads. Websites like Craiglist and eBay are all good places to find clients, including you and me. I use eBay and Craigslist a lot, and I’m certain you know about these platforms and have probably used them.
These are the steps yahoo scammers follow on Classified Scam Format:
- they visit the websites I mentioned above;
- look for any seller (they typically target those who are just newcomers to the website);
- the scammer then discusses with the seller to buy their products;
- They’ll then agree on an amount they are going to pay (let’s say $1,000);
- the scammer then looks for someone to help them Photoshop a fake check;
- the fake check is sent to the buyer at the address they give the scammer;
- in the Cheque, the scammer will overpay the seller (like $3,000), but will tell the seller to help transfer the change to charity;
- the seller is given the phone number of a picker (a person who will pick the money for the scammer), and tell you to send it to the person;
- the scammer then tells you that the “picker” is the person in charge of their charity donations;
- if a seller falls for this scam and pays the picker the money, the scammer then tells the picker to their share of the loot; and finally
- the scammer collects the funds and moves on to the next victim.
As you can see, this classified scam format is quite simple, and even the dumbest scammer can pull it on you, so you have to be careful! The only expenses the scammer incurs money is the fake check generation and the check shipping to the location of the unsuspecting seller.
Bitcoin/HYIP Scam Format
This is another very simple scam format for yahoo that they use to cash out fast from unsuspecting internet users. It works the same way as the investment format (though in an investment scam, a scammer will lure you into an investment scheme with the purpose of stealing your money). [Click here to see how scammers operate the Bitcoin investment format scam I warn people about.
Scammers consider this scam one of the best formats since a victim won’t know who is behind the fake bitcoin platform, and the scammer always collects their funds in Bitcoin only. So, let me expose to you how the Bitcoin/HYIP format works.
- The scammer finds someone to help them design a good bitcoin/HYIP website. You can find more information in this post I wrote to expose the Bitcoin Format. Click here to see how scammers create a fake bitcoin website.
- Next, the scammer fills it up with unique content. You can visit this website, for example, which I busted so you can see what a typical fake Bitcoin site looks like. That is a scam website, but you won’t know if you don’t go through it carefully as I did.
- The scammer starts advertising on the website for people to invest in it.
- Once you invest in this type of website, the scammer will delete and block you from the website and your investment funds are gone.
Unfortunately, since this scam method is a straightforward scam format for yahoo, it’s usually difficult to find or track the scammer because bitcoin payments are usually not traceable.
Instagram flipping is also another good scamming format that scammers can use for their clients. For this section, I will show you how a scammer uses Instagram flipping to collect money from unsuspecting people online.
- First, they will hack the target’s Instagram account.
- They’d now use that stolen account to post good news about how they invested $2,000 and got $3,000 in 1 hour. Your Instagram friends will now think the message is from you and may rush to invest their money.
- The scammer will convince your Instagram friends that the flipping is real.
- Just like you would try to convince a friend to do something, the scammer convinces your friends to invest $1,000 for a start and pay in BTC (Bitcoin).
- Immediately after a target pays the Bitcoin, the scammer blocks them and deletes their account.
It is as simple as that. So, make sure you protect all your accounts from scammers because you never know what they’re capable of once they successfully log into your them.
Job scam yahoo format
Most people are looking for jobs, which will make them fall for this yahoo format. Looking for a job is stressful for most people, and they will jump on any given opportunity no matter how dubious.
Unfortunately, a scammer is always out there to prey on desperate people. The scammer will attempt to give you a glimpse of hope that you can make a lot of money by offering you a job. You will receive emails with heading like “work from home and make money,” or “Perfect work from home job”. The scammer will also ask if you are prepared to make $1,300 by working from home, which can influence your thought process since there’s a lot of money to be made.
Scammers typically target jobless people with enticing offers. Their clients would be unemployed people or underpaid workers looking for an opportunity to change their jobs, so if you’re looking for a job, you want to be extremely careful and look out for the signs I expose in this section.
In the job scam using this latest yahoo format, a scammer will bomb your email, forcing you to register for the fake job so they are down to scamming ASAP.
Working Process of this scam yahoo format
For this format to be successful, a scammer uses the following tools:
- a website
- a company location
- online reviews of people who have worked in your company before
All of these will help the scammer build credibility. So here is how to get started.
- The scammer will send you an email, presenting you with an opportunity to be a part of your work at home.
- They’ll tell you the benefits of working for their organization.
- Then they ask you to send in your employment documents (any document – passport, CV, etc.).
- After you send in your documents, the scammer will ask you to wait for review.
- After a few days, the scammer gets back to you and tells you that you have successfully passed the first stage.
- The next stage is when the scammer asks you to register to become a part of their working crew. They will lie that the money you pay is to allow you to get access to become a premium membership and get access to the job.
- If you pay the so-called “membership fee” or whatever, they take your money and never get back to you.
The scammers can ask you to pay in BTC, gift card, or wire transfer so they never get caught.
Credit Rating Scam
Just perhaps you don’t know, most Americans have bad credit. What this means is that they can’t afford a lot of luxuries like a new house, car, or even take a loan. The majority of them need their credit rating to access most of these needs. Unfortunately, scammers leverage this problem to scam desperate people looking to improve their credit overnight.
In this scam format, a scammer will send you an email promising to help you clear your bad credit rating. Like you, they would have sent multiple emails to various other people claiming they can increase their credit score.
Before using this format, the scammer makes sure they already have a website that shows the legit services (credit hacking) they offer. An example of a fake website to see how this scamming format works is THIS WEBSITE.
Love Spell Latest Scamming Format
This love spell is another scamming format that works for scammers, so you must be careful if you’re desperate about this. Many people are heartbroken and are looking for a way to make their lovers come back to them.
Unfortunately, what you see online is a scam, and scammers claiming to be love spell magicians promising to bring back your lovers or find you lovers.
A scammer knows that you’re more likely to call it a bluff, so they will attempt to threaten you with curses claiming they’d send black magic to your homes—all those are a lie and tricks to steal your money. This love spell caster website is the closest example of how scammers use this format to rip money from unsuspecting people.
The Bomber Dating Format
According to scammers into the relationship scam, the bomber dating format is the latest scamming format to use, and my research shows this is a very common scam, so always be on the lookout.
This is a video I recently found online about this scam and I recommend you watch this eye-opening video to protect yourself online.
Generally, when people fall in love, they tend to lose their sense of reasoning. It makes them vulnerable to all sorts of manipulations from an outsider or whom they fell in love with. Sometimes, scammers even use Yahoo Plus to make their clients fall in love with them for them to cash out. This form of scam involves dark magic.
When a scammer uses the bomber dating format, they prefer a female profile. This will give them the much-needed space to manipulate men who are looking for intimate partners. Just in case you don’t know, there are lots of men looking for young girls. It is up to the scammer to manipulate such individuals and do away with their cash or iTunes gift card. Thus, if you belong in the category of individuals looking for an intimate partner, you ought to be careful whenever your potential partner makes money requests.
An example of the bomber dating format is;
Hi, Your profile hits home with me, and I like that you seem relaxed and very open. Life is to enjoy, laugh, communicate and have a connection with someone special who has a zest for life and all things in it. I like to be active, and I tend to find humor in life. It’s my feeling that people need adventure, laughter, and passion… Let’s talk and see where life takes us…
If you come across messages like this, they are scams and you need to be wary not to fall victim.
The Inheritance Format
Scammers believe this format might have been exposed so much already and probably use it less on Americans and Europeans. It is known as the “Nigerian scam” in some cases, but it is still being used and you must look out to be safe.
The inheritance format works by a scammer reaching out to Europeans who have the money and looking for where to invest it. A scammer will inform you about an inheritance that can make you money, usually too good to be true.
Before a scammer uses the Inheritance format as a scamming format, they are careful in choosing a client to target. They sometimes even run a background check on you to be sure whom they are dealing with.
I have explained the inheritance format for beginners that you need to know to be on the safe side while chatting online with someone pretending to have a profitable investment. Below is a simple example of what the format looks like:
An example of the Inheritance format scammers use is:
My Father, as the Royal head of the olobiri community, was also Chairman of Olobiri Oil trust funds(O.O.T.F). As royal head and Chairman Olobiri Oil Trust, he made some money, which he left for me as the only heir to inherit. The money is Nine million Seven Hundred thousand US dollars($9.7).
The money originated from the accumulation between 1973-1999 before he died due to the poor banking system in Nigeria and political instability due to past military rule and present political imbalance in Nigeria.
He deposited this money in STRONG ROOM/VAULTS with an open beneficiary in Apex Bank PLC…
Grant Lotto Format
The average American wants to win a lottery in their lifetime. This has opened up a huge opportunity for scammers looking to leverage your desperation using the Grant Lotto Format.
The scammer will simply tell their target that they just won more than $50 million from Lotto, and all they need to claim the winning is to dro send their account number for instant payment. This latest scamming can work on just anybody, so be careful when you receive messages claiming you just won whatever amount of money.
The aim of collecting your account number is for the scammer to use some black hat methods to siphon money from your bank.
Example of the Grant Lotto Format;
NOTE: Facebook Lottery Prize must be claimed not later than 7 days from the date of Draw Notification after the Draw date in which the Prize was won.
Note: Any prize not claimed within this period (7 days) will be forfeited.
You only have Seven days to claim your prize. NOTE: YOU ARE ADVISED TO KEEP THE NEWS OF YOUR WINNINGS PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL…
When you receive a message like this, report the account and try to inform your contacts so they can be on the lookout as well.
Billing format for consignment
In the consignment format, a scammer needs to have a Picker who will be on standby to receive the money and wire it down to their account ASAP. An example of this scam is some random messages like:
Subject: Contact to receive your Consignment Box
Attn; My Dear,
I’m Diplomatic Agent Dr.John Philip; I have been trying to reach you on your Email for about four hours now, just to inform you about my successful arrival in Washington Dulles International Airport (DC) the USA, with your box of consignment worth $7.3Million which I have been instructed by I.C EXPRESS COURIER DELIVERY COMPANY to be delivered to you.
The Airport Authority demanded all the legal backup papers to prove to them that the fund is in no way related to drug or fraud money; I have presented the papers I handed to them. They are very much pleased with the papers I submitted. However, the only thing that is still keeping me here is the airport Anti-drug/terrorist clearance certificate and International Delivery Permit, which are not placed on the package, one of the Airport Authority has advised that we get the delivery tag so that I can exit the airport immediately and make my delivery successful. I try to reason with them, and they stated the delivery tag would cost us just $185 only to get. two documents placed on the packages as that documents will enable me.

Email me the payment information as soon as you made the payment available to Paul Namy in the Federal Ministry of Finance.
Email: [email protected]
Note: you need to also know about the medical billing format, which scammers also use on unsuspecting people to make money illegally.
The gay billing format also works like the dating billing format yahoo scammers use to steal your money but this time, they present themselves as gay and interested in LGBT over a specific gender like a female.
The steps a scammer follows include the following:
a. They visit Google and search for “Gay Dating Websites.” There are a lot of options available, so it’s never a problem for them.
b. Next, the scammer turns on their VPN and sets their location to the US or UK (making sure the VPN is premium and works perfectly). They can use any VPN for this though. Meanwhile, if you must protect yourself online from scammers, you should consider buying a cheap VPN, Click here to buy one FAST.
c. The scammer then signs up on a dating site. They will then fill out their profile on the dating website with fake details.
d. The next step is for the scammer to start looking for gay clients they can start chatting with. The aim would be to present themselves as gay partner looking to start dating them. You can also see many LGBT communities and join them to test and see exactly what I mean when people start coming for you to make friends with them.
Accident Billing Format
Another billing format that a scammer can use to collect money from you as their client is the accident billing format.
Scammers also believe that this format works better when they combine it with other blazing formats like dating billing, gay format, military format, etc.
All the scammer has to do is put you in shock saying they are in the hospital with serious injuries/bruises. The scammer believes that you’ll do anything for them to get back on their feet. If you really loved the person, you will be shocked and will want to know what happened. The scammer can tell you that they went searching for a job and that the public transport they used crashed into a trailer that took one life.
#Requirements a scammer uses
- A news URL to a recent accident in their state/country.
- Fake accident photos.
As you can see, the requirements are not much, so it’s very easy for a scammer to manipulate things.
How to Do Accident Billing Format
First, the scammer sends you messages that they’re in the hospital and wait for you to reply.
When you ask, “what happened?” or “how did it happen?” The scammer will send you the accident billing format below:
Today is the saddest day of my life, and I feel very frustrated and suicidal. I hope you’re doing great on your end.
The last money in my bank account went into an investment, and I’m not sure how the investment will turn out. The few days we’ve been chatting inspired me to invest, even though I’m not sure what the future will look like.
To the subject, I was involved in a car accident recently, and fortunately, I survived the severeness but injured myself. I know this is hard to ask, but the hospital bills are quite high for me, especially considering the recent mini importation I ventured into.
The bill set by the hospital [put the hospital name here] is $1,650. I’ve raised $300, and I have deposited it with the hospital. The doctor says I’m due to leave in a few days and that I have to hasten the payment for further treatments to be administered.
My love, I’m begging for your assistance. It will also interest you to know that I didn’t write you this message. I dictated for another person because I feel so weak at the moment.
Kindly get back to me. Thank you
URL to the news of the accident: (Add a link to fake accident news in your country here)
[Add your name]
The scammer still does not send you pictures of a deadly accident. Otherwise, you will lose interest in them and detect easily that they’re a scam.
Ways a scammer can Fake Accident for Accident Format to Work
There are two possible ways a scammer can fake an accident:
- Use makeup.
- Use internet pictures.
One of the things scammers do is to use makeup if the client asks for more messages and probably a video call.
The truth is that most people in the United States can’t access loans because they don’t have good credit. So with the loan format, a scammer will try to give you the idea that you can get low-interest loans with any credit. If you are an interested client, the next step would be for the scammer to make you fill out a form, then apply for the loan (that doesn’t exist).
The billing part of this latest scamming format is that the scammer will want you to pay a certain amount of money to qualify for this loan. Let’s say you have a poor credit score, the scammer will ask you to pay some money (it could be $500 or more) to allow you to qualify.
Loan Format Sample
I am Frank Mooresum, a financial consultant / Financial Fiduciary. I have an investment/loan company that offers any amount of Fund you might be needing at an affordable rate with a favorable payback package. I would be glad to receive your acknowledgment of this email so I can furnish you more with details of my proposal for your consideration.
Mr. Frank Mooresum
A scammer using a female profile is probably using the hookup format.
A scammer can present themselves as a lady that a man would want, then if you ask them to come over for the weekend, they will try to bill you on transport fare or money for the flight. I have written more about the Hookup format for yahoo scams, so you can click here to read more about Hookup Format to protect yourself against scams.
Oil Rig Format
The scammer will try to know you well, then after a while, he comes up with the fact that he is an offshore worker who works as an Engineer with Shell or whatever energy company he has in his mind.
Typically, this doesn’t pose a problem till he starts to explain to you that he needs money to secure some oil contract and all that, then you know that he is up to something dangerous.
How They bill a client with the Latest yahoo Formats.
Now you’ve known the best formats scammers use to bill you when they win you as their client. That said, in this section, I’ll show you the general steps I’ve been researching to know how these scammers run the various formats.
Preparing the Documents
For every scamming format, there are unique documents that scammers need to accompany the format. Let’s say for the Gold format for yahoo scamming, a scammer needs to prepare a proposal letter for the government, an acceptance letter from the government, and a permit for mining. Before any unsuspecting investor can believe them, they need to see all these documents. So the scammers go ahead to make sure that the documents are ready.
Convincing the client
With the documents supporting your format, the next step would be for the scammer to convince their clients that the fake documents are real.
Less pressure on targets
To bill a client with yahoo formats, a scammer needs no urgency. However, they’ll try to get you to understand the consequences of delays. It could be lies that someone else will take your spot or you will give the investment to another person, or sell the cheap house to another investor if you delay.
Starting with a higher amount and moving up
To bill a client with yahoo formats successfully, a scammer tries to understand the concept of upselling. Upselling in the case of a scam is when a scammer uses another format, after an initial scam. So let’s say a scammer used the Consignment format for yahoo, after that, they will easily switch to the gold format to rip you off your money.
Once you fall for a format, the scammer can convince you to fall for more formats till you are tired of the investment and only realize too late that you’ve been scammed.
Conclusion on the Latest Yahoo Formats
