Where bad choices make good stories
A friend keeps getting messages from a scammer claiming to have videos of my friend performing sex acts. The scammer threatens to release the videos if my friend doesn't pay him. I told my friend to request a cut of the profits when they're released.
My good friend the prince of Nigeria says that all of you better pay him in bit coins or gift cards now. I mean right now!yeah. that's the ticket
Country boy, should I receive messages like your friend did, I'd say, "Short subject, huh?"
Yea... I got a scammer trying to tell me he'd recorded videos of me jerking off while watching porn on my smart phone. If I didn't send them like $800 in bitcoin they'd send it to all my friends.I had some fun with that one. I don't watch porn, and I don't own a smart phone, and I don't really have any friends anymore... but I did lead him/her on for awhile.-Just A Chemist.
Sounds like a competitor is trying to put him out of business. Nemo
I’m guessing it’s the town government trying to make up lost tax dollars for shutting everything down for the flu.MadMarlin
The smart thing was to get this in the news. Any search will turn up the news story scam notice dated before accusations being made (if they ever are).
Similar but slightly more believable scam here. Got a call on my cell where a guy was claiming I'd scratched his car with mine. Had the color of the car correct. Said I'd left a note claiming responsibility. Made all sorts of threats. I told him go ahead. He ended the call saying I'd been punked. Yeah. Right.
I turned my ringer to 'off'.The only way I know about a telephone call is a window interfering with my close scrutiny of Knuckledraggin'..If I don't recognize the caller, I answer "Hello!" using my 'deranged geezer' voice.As the caller starts the spiel, I answer "Hello!" again... using my deranged geezer voice..The caller starts over... as I again answer "Hello!" using my deranged geezer....Well, you get the picture...Sometimes, I answer "Who are you!"Caller -- "This is Ian from...""Who are you!"Caller -- "Hi, I'm calling to...""Who are you!"Caller -- "Is there somebody I could...""Who are you!"Few callers get past my 'deranged geezer' act.If somebody is particularly persistent, I say something off-the-wall:* "You need to help me with my spoon!"* "My cats are all blue today!"* "My cats have my spoon!"
