I'm very generous with my Facebook friend requests. I'll accept most people if I have the space from them, but I do check every request to see if the person looks like they are real or are a scammer.

Scams in the WWW


Scammers tend to have very few friends, just opened their Facebook account, and are usually someone you already know, like the scammer who was trying to impersonate my stepmother one time.

This one person slipped through the cracks though and I accepted their friend request only to learn later when they sent me a Facebook message, that they were obviously a scammer.

I could have just ignored them, but I can't pass up opportunities like this. When I get calls from people claiming the warranty on my car is about to expire, I take the call and completely mess with them, asking them where they're from, how their parents are doing, and if they've seen any good movies lately. They end up hanging up and I have my entertainment for the day.

Scammers are everywhere online. There was even a scammer who was pretending to be Krissy on Q97.9 and offering people a chance to win $1000 every day. They couldn't even get the name of her show right calling it "Krissy Show Summer." That's definitely someone whose native language is not English.

I thought I would share how I played with this scammer on Facebook by sharing the DM with you. Here are the screenshots of the conversation so you can share in the fun.
