Dude Almost Falls For Incredibly Believable Scam

We like to see idiot scammers get trolled, but sometimes they're incredibly clever and have access to way more of your information than you thought. Seriously, someone can dig up tons of personal information on you like your family members and past addresses in order to look legit, and frankly that's spooky as hell. This guy had to deal with just that but thankfully had the sense to back out.

Guy Hacks a Scammer Til He Goes Ape-Sh*t

The unfortunate thing about most scammer trolling stories is that even though the scammer might waste some time or look like an idiot, they're never really punished for their malicious behavior. This time around, the scammer gets the tables turned on him and actually loses something out of the deal. Oh, the call is recorded too. The real action happens near the end of the recording.

"It's hard to explain." Nice scapegoat there, pal. The speculation's running rampant, and people are seriously suggesting that the well known Twitch streamer, Ice Poseidon, could be running a Ponzi Scheme. What do you think?

20 Painfully Obvious Scams That Millions Of People Still Fall Victim To

Sometimes, it's easier to will ourselves into believing a blatant lie, cause it's just that--easier. Unpacking and deconstructing a lie (scam), can be exhaustive, require effort, and very little at that; but, it does. Without it, we can find ourselves in the middle of getting forked around by a pyramid scheme we set out to play into with the best of personal intentions; without knowing what was actually happening.
