Warning: neither federal agents nor Steve Rogers appears in this phone call.
I don’t like scammers. Given the opportunity, I will try to engage them and waste their time. Way back when this blog started I shared an encounter with an online scammer that was all via Facebook messenger. My Facebook friends have seen screenshots of other similar engagements over the years. I like wasting their time and I especially like seeing how ridiculous the story can get.
This morning I received a robocall from “OFFICER” at “LEGAL DEPARTMENT”. This sounded serious so I pressed 1 to be connected to “OFFICER”. I was near my computer so I quickly started recording via the laptop mic. It’s not my finest work but I feel that if “OFFICER” had just been a bit more patient with me we really were getting to some good stuff.
Warning: “OFFICER” uses some NSFW language. I really shocked my delicate sensibilities.
I’m just a kid from Brooklyn, after all.
