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.

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.
