What’s Sad Is That People Fall For This

, , , , , | Legal | April 8, 2022

I was looking at Facebook when my friend’s grandma sent me a friend request. I didn’t read her warning that she was being scammed and that you shouldn’t accept her request. I accepted it anyway, and we hopped right onto the chat.

Scammer: “Hello.”

Me: “Hi?”

Scammer: “Have you heard the news?”

Me: “What news?”

Scammer: “The Federal Agent FBI news.”

I knew at once this was a scammer, so I decided to play around with them.

Me: “No, I haven’t. What is the news?”

Scammer: “They have warned everyone in your State about your Credit Card Number being stolen. I am here to ensure that your Credit Card Number is safe. To verify, inform me of your Credit Card Number and we will prevent it from getting stolen.”

Me: “I see. And, what would my state be?”

Scammer: “Um… Kentucky?”

I couldn’t help but laugh a little.

Me: “I’m sorry, but that’s not my state.”

The scammer didn’t completely give up.

Scammer: “That is beside the point! Your Credit Card is at risk. To keep it safe, inform me of its number so we can help.”

Me: “Yes, I see. But why are you claiming to be a credit card specialist when it says you are my best friend’s grandma? Do you think I don’t know that you’re a scammer?”

There’s a pause in replies for a moment.

Scammer: “Ma’am, I am trying to help you.”

Me: “Sir, I am a lawyer, so please tell me your location and I will get police on the spot.”

The scammer disappeared. I couldn’t help but laugh; I am actually a lawyer.
