Scammers Need To Get More Creative

I work for a large multinational retailer. My coworker answers the phone to a caller with a foreign accent.

Coworker: “Hello, [Retailer]. This is [Coworker].”

Caller: “Hello. I am from the Internet provider. I am calling because your Internet is slow.”

Coworker: “Okay.”

Caller: “Are you the only user on your connection?”

Coworker: “Yes.”

Caller: “Yes, I can see that.”

Coworker: “You know you’ve called [Retailer], right?”

Caller: “Yes.”

Coworker: “You know they’re a huge company, right?”

Caller: “Yes.”

Coworker: “Do you want me to put you on with the owner?”

The caller hung up. We joked that they were going to ask us to pay them in iTunes gift cards, which is actually something that we stock.
