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?
Scammer: its good to hear from you,i have a great news to share with you. Guess what?
Scammer: Are you aware of WLA Lottery nominated by facebook?
Me: No. Say, I heard you went to Jane’s wedding.
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?
Me: Hold that thought. I have to eat lunch.
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?
