90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star Lisa “Babygirl” Hamme is very familiar with online dating scams. After claiming that Usman “Sojaboy” Umar pulled a romance scam on her, Lisa revealed that he is not the first Nigerian “Yahoo Boy” she has come across. With her marriage to Usman on the rocks, here is what Lisa had to say about how she deals with men who try to scam her online.
The tale of Yolanda and Williams on ’90 Day Fiancé’
The topic of online scamming surfaced during the 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days tell-all. During the special, it was finally revealed that Yolanda’s romance with Williams was nothing but a sham. Fans have speculated all season long that Williams was not who he said he was. After hiring a private investigator to look into his profile, Yolanda discovered that he was actually a Nigerian scammer and was not from the United Kingdom.
Most of the cast shared their thoughts on Yolanda’s predicament during the tell-all, but things got really interesting when Lisa chimed in.
Lisa dishes on online dating scams
According to Screen Rant, Lisa revealed that she immediately knew Williams was a Nigerian scammer based on his profile. The 90 Day Fiancéstar also warned Yolanda that Williams probably isn’t done scamming her and will likely attempt to get her on a different platform.
“I wanna chime in here, guys. Yolanda, his format that you had on Instagram, it’s completely fake. What they do is they run it for so long and if they can’t get a hit, like they want 50 clients at a time, they’re called Yahoo Boys and G Men,” Lisa shared. “You were his client and he is not done with you. He’s your atypical scammer, he’s grooming you, next he will seclude you. He will take you from your platform. He will move you to Vibe, Hangouts, WhatsApp.”
At that point, host Shaun Robinson asked Lisa how she knew so much about the world of Nigerian scammers. Turns out, she has a long history of dealing with guys like Williams.

After Robinson asked Lisa about how she knows about “Yahoo Boys,” she revealed that she deals with these types of scammers on an annual basis.
“They tried. I’m very good at this,” she noted.
Lisa added that she gets messaged by around 300 Nigerian scammers every year, which prompted Erika to say that she is “batting them off with a stick.”
