Scare A Scammer With Something Illegal

, , | Legal | November 3, 2019

(I have a scammer constantly calling my home and cell about a vehicle warranty. To double-check myself, I read through the warranty I do have, leading me to believe this is a scammer. They do somehow know my car and my name, but the warranty isn’t due to expire until next year. After this last one, I decide to have a little fun.)

Scammer: “Hello, is this [My Name]?”

Me: “Yes, may I help you?”

Scammer: “Hi, I’m calling on behalf of your 2016 Dodge Dart. Its warranty has run out and I need to renew it for you.”

Me: *quickly realizing this is the scammer* “My car?”

Scammer: “Yes, miss, do you still have it?”

Me: “Oh, my gosh, no! I sold it for drug money! Heroin is expensive, you know!”

Scammer: “I… I… I… B-but… Uh…”

Mom: *instantly cracks up laughing*

Dad: “What did she just say?”

Brother: “[My Name]!”

Me: “Huh, they hung up. What’s with you all?”

(My mother laughed for a good while, which was the first time in a while, and I haven’t been called back in a few days… so far.)
