With the rise of online scams, there’s not many people dedicated to exposing frauds. Coffeezilla is one of the rare few, the internet detective enjoys calling out fake gurus and shady crypto investments. As of 2023, Coffeezilla has an estimated net worth of $1 million.
Real name Stephen Findeisen, he likes to keep his personal life out of the spotlight. Despite this, it is known he has a degree in chemical engineering from Texas A&M University. Before becoming a full-time YouTuber, he sold houses for a local builder.
Coffeezilla began uploading videos on YouTube in 2018 but it took a while for him to get noticed. Despite this, he was determined to break through. He was inspired to expose frauds as his mother was hustled by snake oil salesmen.
His early videos on multi-level marketing slowly built up an audience. But it wasn’t until he started calling out fake gurus that his views and subscriber count popped off. Over the years, Coffezilla has called out people such as Logan Paul, TechLead, Ricky Gutierrez, and Dan Lok.
As the channel grew, he began tackling more in-depth topics and spent significant time researching his targets. With the crypto boom, Stephen focused his attention on NFTs, Tether and Safemoon. The Texan now has over 2.8 million subscribers.
His work with YouTube group, SomeOrdinaryGamers, investigating the Faze Clan members is one of his most well-known endeavors.
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 Faze Clan, as well as the suspension of the rest of the members.
Doing these kinds of videos has resulted in a lot of hate toward Findeisen. The online figures he calls out have tried to stop him with legal threats and attempts to take down videos.
They’ve even doxxed him, spreading personal details and false rumors to damage his reputation. Fans are also concerned about future lawsuits against the YouTuber. More than likely Stephen does have professional liability insurance to protect against lawsuits.
Net Worth and Earnings
Stephen’s YouTube channel makes around $10,000 per month in ad revenue and averages 8 million views every month. Just from ads alone, he makes a six figure income! Bizarrely, some of the ads appearing on videos are from the same people he’s calling out.
He also had a podcast, the Drip, which he ran with Amish Patel. The YouTuber does also appear on other podcasts such as Joe Rogan, KONCRETE and SomeOrdinaryPodcast. Today, his fortune stands at $1 million.
As previously mentioned, Stephen doesn’t talk much about his early life but it’s known he’s happily married. Stephen met his wife as a sophomore in high school and they dated for a long time before tying the knot in 2017. Currently, the couple live in San Antonio, Texas.
