Kitboga is an online streamer that scam baits over the phone. He uses multiple personas to trick the scammers into believing he is someone they can con money from. He has a huge following with 1.89M subscribers on YouTube and 969K subscribers on Twitch.
Definitely not all, but some of the popular ones
Kitboga uses a voice changer to impersonate his characters.
His real name is kept secret for security reasons. He doesn’t reveal his name for privacy, and scammers sometimes threaten revenge when confronting them at the end of his calls.
Some have speculated that his real name is KITchen BOGAsolv, but that doubt there is any truth to that.
Others suggest the name was from the game Age of Empires, where there is an AI named Kitboga. The AI’s strategy was to spam siege weapons, which a troll would do, and Kit thought it was hilarious. https://ageofempires.fandom.com/wiki/Mongols
Known for always wearing sunglasses. He says he started doing it because of anonymity, but now it’s just part of his persona. Even at TwitchCon he doesn’t take them off.
Social Blade estimates monthly earnings from YouTube videos to be $2.1K – $33.7K ($25.3K – $404.2K a year). This doesn’t even include Twitch, sponsors, merch, and other earnings. In total, he is making an impressively large chunk of change.
Before he was streaming, Kitboga worked as a software engineer. As a software engineer, his salary must have been close to six figures. But he must have seen better value in fighting against scammers who took advantage of the elderly.
Little is know about Kitboga’s personal life, other than he lives in the state of Maryland (thanks George).
