I once encountered a scam via a phone call and I, kind of wasted a lot of money and energy of the scammer.
On a lazy sunday morning, I got a call from +91 70789 51593, a female voice was talking. I was informed that I have won a free Samsung J2 Mobile Phone and an Adidas kit containing goggles, jeans, shoes and what not. The market value of the combo was 30k but I need to pay winning charges 6.5k for handling.
The deal was kind of appealing but I had a smell of scam I used a little wit and accpeted the offer. Meanwhile I went on google and checked for adidas scam. Everyting was confirmed. I was being fooled.
She informed that I did not have to pay anything now but I have to pay cash on delivery. Anyone will fall for this kind of offer. Something worth 30k at the price of 6.5k that too at COD. But the actual thing was, I had to go to local post office to collect the shipment and pre-pay before opening it. (India Post holds no guarranty on the product in the shipment. They just take the money.)
She took approx 15 minuites in taking the order. She asked sizes and colour of each product. Even the Adidas belt’s size and colour was asked. She was very detailed on every product to make me sure of buying it. She even suggested that the lower of white colour wont be a very good option.
She then took my address. I gave my address in complete details and landline/ mobile number was provided. She informed me that I have to go to the IndiaPost office and collect the shipment. Their (both IndiaPost and Adidas) team will inform me when the parcel has arrived and I have to go with 6.5k in hand. I said okay.
Later I got a confirmation of my order. :D
在一个慵懒的星期天早上，我接到+91 70789 51593打来的电话，说话的是一个女声。我被告知，我赢得了一部免费的三星J2手机和一套阿迪达斯套装，其中包括护目镜、牛仔裤、鞋子等。该组合的市场价值为3万，但我需要支付0.65万的手续费。

Scammers also sent order confirmations now. You are properly ready to be fooled.
Same evening, I got a verification call from +91 90581 12808 m. They confirmed if I was informed as they asked and not offered anything else. They made sure I accept to go to the local post office and pay money to receive the parcel. I accepted everything and my scam order was placed. I enjoyed talking to them as I answered very interestingly and it made them happy.
Now a week later, I got call from local post office that a parcel has arrived on my name. I informed them I am not coming and this is a scam parcel. They can send it back. I thought this must be over but not yet. Next morning I got a call from the Adidas customer suppourt team from +91 90849 97459 and a guy named Krishna informed me that my parcel has arrived and I have to pay 13k to get it.
I thought to roast him a little and told him I will go that evening. He insisted that I must go on the same day. He also told me to go by car as the parcel was huge.
I called him later that evening and told him that IndiaPost's lazy employees have returned the parcel without my permission. I went there with money but the parcel was returned already. I almost fake cried that I lost such a great offer. He told, he will confirm by checking in his system. He affirmed that the parcel was returned. I requested to send back the parcel. :D
同一天晚上，我接到+91 90581 12808 m的验证电话。他们确认我是否按照他们的要求得到了通知，但没有提供任何其他信息。他们确保我同意去当地的邮局，并付款接收包裹。我接受了一切，我的诈骗订单下达了。我很喜欢和他们交谈，因为我的回答很有趣，这让他们很开心。
一周后，我接到当地邮局的电话，说有一个包裹寄到了我的名下。我告诉他们我不来了，这是一个骗局。他们可以把它寄回去。我以为这一定结束了，但还没结束。第二天早上，我接到阿迪达斯客户支持团队的电话，电话号码为+91 90849 97459，一个叫Krishna的人告诉我，我的包裹已经到了，我必须支付1.3万才能拿到。

Now, next week, I got a call from Nodia Post office. The guy talked in fake tone of a UP guy. I understood he is a conman too. The said post office guy informed me that there was a big parcel in my name. The parcel weighed 10kgs or something and they are scanning it on a x-ray scanner for security reasons. He told me he could see some mobile phones and key ring etc in the parcel. I confirmed that I had won this one and its all okay.
Now the parcel reached to local post office again. Krishna called me again. He informed me I can get my parcel and pay the money to IndiaPost. I told him I will go tomorrow. He agreed.
Now, he called me like every hour from next day. I didn't take any. He called from other numbers. I heard him and hanged up. He called me for 5–6 days and then he got tired of it.
These folks think the people are fools. Dude, I wasted your 2–3k bucks and numerous calls. :D
I felt like a boss.
Waaaaaay back when email was very new, I got a Nigerian Scammer email. I decided to have some fun with him.
I posed as an archaeologist who was just about to go on a dig; I was really interested in helping him, because it would help finance my work “which I can’t get academic funding for, due to the controversy,” but I would be in touch with him in about a week.
In a week, sure enough he emailed me again. I was “back from the dig,” and I had made some “really exciting finds” indicating the worship of some “totally unknown gods or demons” in the middle of Indiana before white men arrived. I asked him for details, said I would get back to him once I had the details, and said I was mailing him one of the many “amulets” I had found as a souvenir.
He emailed me right back, but my response was about the strange sounds I was hearing at night. He emailed me again, but my response was that the shadows in my office and apartment seemed to be acting “oddly.” There was a lot more back and forth like that, then I stopped emailing him.
After about five increasingly testy emails from him, I emailed him from a new account, as “Detective Such and Such” with the “Indianapolice” PD. I described in detail the scene of carnage we had discovered in the archaeologist's office, and the fact that everything was covered with a layer of strange, glowing slime. I told him sternly that he was the last contact on the archaeologist’s email account, they wanted to question him at length. And oh…I hadn’t mailed him anything, had I?
Amazingly I never heard from him again.
A company kept calling us several years ago. I forget what the heck they were selling - windows, I think. All I know was that it was something I had absolutely no need for. So I told them to stop calling us. They kept calling. I threatened to report them. More calls.
Eventually, one day, I answered the phone . I decided to try a different tactic. I listened to the pitch (every time they called it was someone new, and they had never heard of me). I politely “mmhmmed” every time they told me about the quality and value of their product.
Then I said I was interested. I went on and on talking about how much I wanted them to visit me. Every time they wanted my information, I just broke into another long diatribe about how grateful I was they had called me right at that moment.
When finally it came time for them to get my address for a consultation, I slowly and carefully enunciated
I gave them my city, state, and zip, to make it convincing. .
I sold a car on credit to a guy who never made a payment.
He declared bankruptcy the day after he bought it, which meant I couldn't repossess it until the court lifted the stay — a process which took months. This was his plan all along.
By the time I could legally take it back, he had moved.
I had his driver’s license picture, so I made some 11 X 17 yellow “wanted” posters with his picture, and offering a $100 reward for information about the car. I posted this on the community mailbox in his expensive neighborhood to maximize the embarrassment.
I was obsessed with this jerk, so every day, I drove to the neighborhood and every day, the posters were gone. I figured his kid was still attending the same school, even though he had moved, and that's why he was in the area each day to rip down the posters.
The next school day, he showed up at 3:30, but not in my car. I tried to follow him home, but he spotted me and started driving like a maniac with his kid in the car. I stopped because it was too dangerous of a situation.
I had originally put up the reward posters to provoke him, hoping he'd show up to kick my a** and I could grab the car.
But then, I got a phone call one night from his former neighbor, seeking the reward. “He was over here getting his mail, and his little girl told me they had moved to a new apartment complex called “XYZ,” said the neighbor.
I called a wrecker, and we went and picked it up. While we were there, I noticed that his other car was near by. I figured that if he screwed me, he probably did the same to some other dealer.
I checked the lien holder info, called the dealer, and he said that he had, indeed, been looking for the car for a year.
I called a second wrecker, and when both the cars were on the hook, I started blowing the horn.
He came outside, just in time to see me wave as his cars slowly rolled away.
I sent the guy who blew him in the $100 the next day.
我有他的驾照照片，所以我用他的照片制作了一些11 X 17的黄色“通缉犯”海报，并悬赏100美元寻找有关这辆车的信息。我把这封信贴在他住的昂贵小区的社区邮箱上，以最大限度地增加他的尴尬。
I was 16, a magician, and looking to impress a girl. What could go wrong?
I was meeting her in Central Park and I got there a little early. While waiting, I saw a man playing 3-card-monte. He had a pretty big crowd around him. I joined the onlookers and quickly recognized his particular method of cheating. I had read about it and even practiced it a little for fun. By the time he asked you to “find the lady”, there was no lady on the table.
My date arrived and I asked her if she wanted to see something cool. I explained to her how he was cheating and told her to watch what I did.
Being a magician, I always had a deck of cards on me. He was using the standard red bicycle deck, same as I had. I stepped behind a boulder for a moment, took out my queen of hearts, and bent it to look like his. I went back and put down just about everything I had in my wallet. When he told me to “find the lady”, I did a little sleight of hand of my own, flipping the middle card while replacing it with the queen of hearts from my own deck. The look on his face was priceless. To his credit, though he must have known I had played him, he did pay up. He probably didn't want to lose his crowd, knowing he could make his money back from them. It didn't occur to him though that he now had two “lady”s and two other cards, not enough for his usual scam.
Date turned out to be a rather dull person though …
A vacuum cleaner salesman attempted a bait and switch scam on me which worked out badly for him. He had advertised a refurbished Electrolux canister machine for $12.50. (This was in 1963.) When he showed up to demonstrate the machine, it had hardly any suction. While he went out to his car to get his ‘better’ (and much more expensive) machine, I discovered that the cheap bait machine had been sabotaged by placing some paper towels over the perforated back plate behind the dust collection bag. Upon removing those, it turns out that it worked quite well. I bought it. It lasted many years before I passed it on to a roommate. Poor guy had to find another bait machine.
I have never scammed anyone but I was called a scammer by a scammer. I will explain about this which I recently came across. It is known as “The Sugar Daddy” scam.
I received a DM on my Instagram account by a middle aged white man (observing from his profile) asking whether I am interested in being a sugar baby to him and that he can pay me several thousand dollars per week. I was quite taken aback by the amount he mentioned as it was a lot. I am actually not interested in meeting a stranger (or sugar daddy) for a date or other things for safety reasons. I have read that sugar daddies pay a lot for romantic texts, audio chats and for custom erotic pictures. I just thought why not online as it can cover up my bills. I am single and don’t have a partner, so I don’t mind sending romantic or other chats and some erotic pictures for a decent amount of money. I wouldn’t do that if I have a partner. Maybe I should start a only fans account too, why not?
Anyways I explained this to my potential sugar daddy and asked for a small amount of money in Amazon gift card instead of his generous offer. He said he could pay only through paypal that too he was insistent on a large amount. I donot want to receive via paypal as that would be taxable and I have to report it to IRS. Amazon gift card would be an easy option for both of us. But he was insistent on paypal which was kind of fishy and when I didnot accept he started saying words which I didn’t understand (Alaye, Koshi) and called me a scammer. I googled and thats when I learnt that it was a huge scam. I immediately blocked him.
People would target young women and ask her to be sugar baby for a huge amount. They would ask paypal details and then they would deposit a huge amount around $ 5000 which would be a pending transaction but it would show in your account as amount received. After a while they would ask to send back just $ 500 saying some emergency issues which we would do because we just received $ 5000. Once we send it the pending transaction would not be processed and we would end up losing $ 500.
So, sugar daddies if you want online services only Amazon gift card. No scamming around.
As a sex worker, I almost always got paid in cash.
But once in a while, clients would ask me for different options, since they didn’t have cash with them.
One time, I got booked in a nearby town. Usually, when I traveled, I required a 50% deposit, which clients paid by sending me the money through PayPal.
The client that I was meeting with sent me the deposit, booked a hotel, and everything was set.
I went to where I was supposed to, checked in, and waited for him. He arrived and wanted to send the remaining money through PayPal as well. I didn’t think that it was going to be a problem, so I agreed.
After I received the money, I provided the service and he left. A few hours later, I receive an e-mail that he complained to PayPal that it wasn’t him who initiated the payment, but somebody (me) had hacked into his PayPal and did it. PayPal blocked the amount and opened an investigation.
I was really, really pissed. What kind of person would do that? Why would he take advantage of me being flexible so that he could pay more easily?
So, this is what happened. I remembered that he had booked the hotel under my name. I figured that the hotel might have some paperwork that would somehow lix him to me.
I went there and, yes, they had the receipt. It clearly included his name, his credit card number (first six and last four digits), and my name as the hotel guest. I was just about to leave when the lady at the reception desk asked me if I want to spend a few more days at the hotel at a special rate or something. She said that I didn’t need to check in as usual because they already had everything they needed, including “my credit card.” A devious smile appeared on my face. I took the room for three days and paid it with the sucker’s credit card on file. It cost $170 per night. Breakfast included.
When I got to the room, I took a picture of the receipt and sent it to PayPal, clearly explaining that during the same day, this person booked a hotel for me. I also sent email screenshots of us arranging to meet. Luckily for me, the e-mail he used for PayPal matched the one my client had used when he was communicating with me. In one of the emails, he even had attached a screenshot of the first payment he made to me, clearly demonstrating his intent (and his satisfaction) that he paid.
Twelve days later, PayPal unblocked the money and I withdrew it.
