(I get a call from a number I don’t recognize and decide to call them back to see what’s going on.)

Me: “Hello. I received a call from this number and wanted to see what the problem was.”

Scammer: “Yes, I am from National Security Services.”

Me: “Oh? What branch of the government do you work for?”

Scammer: “I cannot tell you.”

Me: “Well, as an American citizen, it’s within my rights to know who is trying to contact me–”

Scammer: “No, no, it is not.”

Me: “Oh, so I’m a Russian citizen now?”

Scammer: “Are… are you saying you’re a Russian citizen?”

Me: “Well, since you won’t treat me like an American citizen–”

(They hung up.)
