TERRY DULLUM: The Dullum File — Scammin’ The Scammers

I enjoy playing with scammers. You know, the ones who pretend to be your friends on Facebook. I like to think I’ve wasted at least some of their “work” time by keeping them occupied for as long as possible.

Below is my actual conversation from Saturday:

Scammer: Hello. How are you?

Me: Doing well.

Scammer: Am pretty good, life is blessed, how are things in your world?

Me: Good.

Scammer: its good to hear from you,i have a great news to share with you. Guess what?

Me: What?

Scammer: Are you aware of WLA Lottery nominated by facebook?

Me: No. Say, I heard you went to Jane’s wedding.

Scammer: Really

Scammer: Am glad to tell you Some Facebook user’s name are chosen in automated random data base, where i got $50,000,I thought it was a scam until i got delivered

Me: But you went to Jane’s wedding?

Scammer: Yes but i needed to be very sure this that is why i did not not say anything before but right now i have the money cleared into my account

Me: Yeah, but I heard Jack died right in the middle of the service?

Scammer: Yes

Me: Hold that thought. I have to eat lunch.

Scammer: okay

Scammer: Are you kidding or pretending?Because when the Ups men came to delivered the money to me at my doorstep it seems your profile name was on the winner’s list with the shipping company agent,so i thought i would see if you have gotten yours?

Me: Nope. Thanks. Say, would you like to go to the new James Bond movie with me tonight?

Me: You still there?

Me: You there?

    Haha…every scammer deserves this kind of treatment. I never take the time you did, Terry, in putting them on. I should. I used to ask a bunch of questions of some of those out-of-towners who came to our door trying to sell magazines (remember those? Magazines? And the guys who tried to sell them for somebody?). I put them through a bunch of questions and then one these guys said, after jumping around a bit, “could I use your bathroom?” Caller ID helps– but what most of these unsolicited callers are doing is against the law. Apparently that law can’t be enforced. Enjoyed your piece, as always!

    Thanks, Larry. I believe wasting some scammers time is time well-spent.
