Coffeezilla – The YouTuber Exposing Fake Crypto Gurus and Scams

Nowadays, online scams are spreading on the internet and many people are falling victim to them. Fortunately, there are those who denounce these frauds. YouTuber Coffeezilla is one of them. He is portrayed as an internet sleuth who mostly calls fake gurus and crypto investments. As of 2022, Coffeezilla has an estimated net worth of $1 million.


Coffeezilla’s real name is Stephen Findeisen. Other than his name, there isn’t much publicly known about the YouTuber. This includes his age, it is estimated that he is around 30 years old.

Stephen is a private man and has not revealed much about his early life and upbringing. The same goes for his career before becoming a content creator.

However, it is said that he was once employed as a web developer. Yet this has never been confirmed by Stephen Findeisen himself. The one thing his followers can be sure of is that he has a knack for smelling out lies.

YouTube career

The Coffeezilla YouTube channel was created in 2018. In the beginning, Findeisen did not have a specific category for the content it produced. It took a while before he started doing what he is known for today, exposing the scams.

He has made videos on the truth behind multilevel marketing. But it wasn’t until he started calling fake gurus that his views and follower count grew. He called people like Tai Lopez, TechLead, Ricky Gutierrez, Ben Philips and Dan Lok.

As his channel grew, he also tackled more contemporary types of fraud. This includes investment scams, which are mostly related to crypto, blockchains, and NFTs. Stephen spoke out against Tether and SafeMoon. With this, he got more than 1.04 million subscribers.

Notable activities

His work with YouTuber gaming group SomeOrdinaryGamers to investigate members of the Faze Clan is one of the internet sleuth’s most famous attempts.

They targeted Teeqo, Jarvis, Kay, Ricegum and Nikan for their involvement in a crypto pump and dump scheme. The investigation led to Kay’s removal from the Faze Clan, along with the suspension of the rest of said members.

Doing these kinds of videos brings a lot of personal grudge towards Findeisen. The fake gurus and online personalities he exposed have repeatedly tried to take down his videos.

They even doxxed him, spreading personal details and false rumors to damage his reputation. Fans are also worried about future legal action against the YouTuber. More than likely, Stephen has professional liability insurance to protect against lawsuits.

Net worth and earnings

From YouTube ad revenue, according to Social Blade, Stephen earns between $1,100 and $17,700 a month. He most likely earns around $10,000 a month, earning him a six-figure annual income from the ads alone.

However, it should be noted that Coffeezilla’s goal for its channel is not to make huge profits. Instead, it’s more about public service. Nevertheless, it is a significant source of income. Oddly, some of the ads appearing on his videos are from the exact people he calls.

He also has a podcast, the Drip, which he runs with Amish Patel. Apart from his own content creation, he appears on other podcasts such as The Jordan Harbinger Show, KONCRETE and SomeOrdinaryPodcast. That’s why his fortune is 1 million dollars.

Private life

As mentioned, he is a mysterious character online, but he revealed that he is married. Stephen met his wife when he was a sophomore in high school. They dated for a long time before getting married in 2017.
