Scamming The Scammers

, , , , | Legal | December 27, 2021

I keep getting a lot of scam calls. Lately, it’s been the Medicare and insurance scammers. As they are going into their monologue, I interrupt them.

Me: *In a very monotone voice* “Name, please.”

Scammer: “Oh, it’s [Scammer], and I—”

Me: “Business name, please.”

Scammer: “I’m calling from the Medicare office to make sure you—”

Me: “Account number, please.”

Scammer: “Ummm… what?”

Me: *In a more aggravated tone* “I need your account number, please.”

Scammer: “Oh, no, I’m calling to—”

Me: “I cannot assist you without your account number. You know that by now. What is it?”

Scammer: “Ummm, no, I’m—”

Me: “WHAT IS YOUR ACCOUNT NUMBER? I will not assist you without it. Do you need a moment to find it or do you need to call back?”

This is usually the point they hang up. If they don’t, I keep interrupting them, demanding an account number. I have a recording of hold music for the next one that doesn’t. I plan on telling them I will give them a moment to find their account number and putting the music on. I am curious to see how long they will stay on the line before hanging up.
