Man Calls Out Fake Marine, Fake Marine Threatens Arrest

Ah yes, another fine example of a liar getting caught up in the middle of weaving their web of lies. In this case, the fake marine gets called out, and then proceeds to lash out and threaten to arrest the dude who called him on his antics.

That is one way to deal with a phone scammer. Never forget the time that this programmer decided to write a script that called phone scammers 28 times a second, which resulted in service denial, which prevented future scams.
