Everyone has dealt with scammers.
I am sure we have all gotten those calls where they pose as someone from the bank and tell you to do something unless you want your account frozen or something else that is just a fear tactic. It is usually pretty easy to realize that they are scamming you since they don’t really call from an official number and even if you don’t realize it at first, when they ask for gift cards, you will get them. The reason they always ask for gift cards is that those cannot be tracked and this is obviously a crime.
That is the reason a lot of stores ask you beforehand when you try to buy a lot of gift cards at once. They have been taught to warn about anything that looks suspicious. And even backs will directly message you telling you not to tell anyone your information since they will never ask for anything personal unless you call them first on an official number. So it is no surprise that people love to troll these scammers.
The following is one such story. I have to admit that this is a new kind of scam as I have never seen this before. So scroll below to take a look for yourself.
This is usually how these sorts of scams start.
I have to admit that this was great and I am going to do the same next time I get a scam call.
I am surprised the scammer didn’t realize that he was getting scammed when the picture of apples was sent. But then again, scammers aren’t generally very intelligent. If they were, they wouldn’t be doing this kind of thing.
That apple card does look quite cute and I would love to buy it.
The scammer had to send a picture so his ‘victim’ could understand.
Which CEO gives Apple gift cards to a prospective party? Honestly, this is just weird.
I am surprised that he cared about how the apple gift cards look like in the first place.
You would think he would realize that it was a troll but apparently not.
He should have realized that this was a joke but apparently he kept it going thinking that it might work. Then again, they do have a lot of free time so this is nothing for them.
Things went even further and it is honestly hilarious.
At this time, the scammer just wants the money and doesn’t even care about anything else or keeping up the facade.
The amount of time they spend on this kind of thing is awful. Isn’t it better to get a job rather than do something like this? I know a lot of people who do this are living in poverty and are trying to feed their families but it is still wrong.
It is time for cat tax to turn that frown upside down!
This tiny kitty looks pissed off. She does not want to talk to the hooman but still wants to be petted. The dilemma is clear on her face. But the kitty still looks adorable!
