Body of content:
I found an ad on Craigslist by a guy who was clearly running a scam by trying to get credit card information from people. The whole concept of the scam was so ridiculous and obvious, I decided to phone him up as Buk Lau and try to get him to crack!
The scammer turns out to be a teenager from London, and wants to meet up in person to supposedly put money on my card - supposedly no strings attached! I responded with some unusual requests, including requesting a movie date with him. Throughout the phone calls he couldn’t help but laugh at the strange conversations with Buk!
I thought I almost got him to admit his scam - but at the end he went silent on me! The demon voice must have scared him off. Do you think he was ready to stop scamming after this call? What other phone scammer prank calls should I try? Let me know in the comments!
