Said they recovered a package sent to me containing cash and drugs. I was instructed to press one, but I hung up instead and blocked the number. I'm wondering why I even answer the phone. Don't these scammers realize the majority of people aren't stupid like they are? Or am I wrong, the majority of people are stupid.

A high pct do what you did. But, they only need a few to go along.

Not without cussing them out first.

I'm good with Spanish, but I could use some instruction in Bengali, Punjabi, and Yanomamo.

I got called from Mega Millions saying I won. Funny thing is, I never entered. I know I missed out on the big money by hanging up, but what was I going to do with all of that money anyhow?

When they call and it’s not an actual robo call, it’s fun to screw with them. “Hey Betty, we gon be rich”. Pit the phone down for a bit. Pick it back up and give em some fake info. Tell em to hold in while tell uncle bob. Keep stringing them along and tell em - “you dumbass, did you really think I was that dumb?” That usually gets them swearing at me.

Right. It's a numbers game. If only one percent fall for it, they're happy as can be.

Too bad you didnt fugg with them for a bit.

If it were real the package would have cash OR drugs...not both....

And if it had cash you could ask where you could claim it...

I answer some of these on accident, because I don't have my bifocals on all the time. Phone rings will I'm driving no time to put glasses on, & next thing I know I'm hearing about my car warranty.

You Tube has a couple of guys that are real computer experts .They pretend that they are old ladies and string these guys along for an hour and then they start deleting their files,shutting down their computers etc.In general they destroy these scammers,pretty funny to watch them getting called by their real names ,real addresses,they turn their security cameras on,ask them,"are you wearing a blue shirt"? I m glad someone is hammering these a -holes.
