Oh man. So I bought an air horn to blast into the mic of my phone at work when scam callers annoy us. It has been a lot of fun. On Monday, however, some dude from India called my phone and I strung him along for a bit then gave him a blast. So he called back to call me a jerk and yell at me and I blasted him again. Rinse and repeat like half a dozen times.

Now, dude is on a mission to call me all.the.time. At first I thought he was going to get tired of this way before me. Now I'm not so sure. Ugh. Luckily it is on my MagicJack number, but I've had to delete the app off my phone so it isn't ringing all the time. Might have to retire the number over this.

What have you fataed up lately?

Can't you just block the number?

Keep fighting the good fight. Every time he calls you is a time he doesn't scam some old lady/gentleman out of their retirement savings.

Haha, he's got you. Own it. Maybe chat him up and make a friend in India.

You should make up, become friends, chat all the time, and then sell your movie rights.

I did that once, strung the scammer along until going with my line of "Do you kiss your children with that same mouth you use to scam people? What does your religion teach you about stealing?"

The scammer then started spoofing my number for the rest of his scam calls for the day. I kept getting people calling me back.

Dear God, I am laughing so hard. The way you planned it all out, bought equipment to carry out the scheme and now being scared to answer the phone as your joke backfired. This is something Calvin and Hobbes might have done to Susie, who then got the last laugh.

tell him that you know everything about him because you're a super hacker, inform him that you have video of him watching porn and doing unspeakable things in front of his webcams and if he doesn't send you $50,000 in bitcoins that you'll send video of it to his family.

You can’t win by engaging with these people. All they do all day everyday is call people, whereas, you have a real job.
Best to ignore them in the first place.

I'll usually just say something like OK let me go get my credit card, then I leave the phone off the hook until they hang up or I get another call come in.

I think my f up today was when I texted a response to my sister's question..."So how'd your date go last night?" with a pretty serious typo/auto correct in it. "Pretty good but no dick" was supposed to be "Pretty good but no click".
