In the great spirit of the rogues gallery, I present a video that all should see. This young man actually got African diamond scammers to ask HIM to quit emailing THEM!! Very funny!

Now everyone here knows how to deal with the scammers.
Ask them if they will throw in a free toaster with the kilogram sample of gold.

Scammers win because occasionally they hit the right combination of greed and cluelessness wrapped up in in one person. :lol: :lol:

They only need to find that occasionally because they work on such good margins.

Haha, I got a real kick out of his proof of ID. The old Blockbusters rental card. Pure genius! :lol:

My wife worked in a convenience store for several years and the things people will try to use as an I.D. is amazing. A couple that stick out the most was a guy who used crayons to write out his own "green" card, and a man who went to jail trying to use a stolen I.D. that belonged to his ex-wife.

That guy is hilarious. I saw it on facebook a while ago and was inspired. I've just not had the chance to play with anyone scamming yet, lol.

Every Tuesday I get a phone call wanting to reduce the rates on my credit card. After a few calls I realized it was always the same guy who answered so I started playing with him. I once kept him on the phone for almost an hour waiting for the wife to "get home from shopping" so I could give him the card number. I got another call from my nephew so used it as an excuse to put him on hold, which he promptly disconnected. I got him so upset that the last call I got, I pressed 9 as ask and said hello as soon as he answered. He promptly replied on $^%& not you again and hung up. I only get called once a month now, :lol:
