I'm so stressed out today (private matters). But everything turned around when my phone rang. I looked at it and it was from an unknown caller. I answered it anyway, and the caller told me they have a job opening and asking if I'm interested. He told me he works for a multi-billion dollar company and is asking me if I'm ok with a "No Strings Attached" job.
Ok, it's obviously a pyramiding scam, but I love it when these guys call me. I get the chance to make a fool out of them. Anyway, the conversation goes on like this…
|Caller:||Blah blah blah (describing his imaginary company for like 1-2 minutes)|
|Me:||What's the company's name?|
|Caller:||You're a graduate of DLSU right?|
|Me:||... yeah... so... what's the company's name?|
|Caller:||Well actually I am currently working for 4 different multi-billion dollar companies.|
|Me:||... so... the companies' name?|
|Caller:||I already told you, I work for 4 different companies.|
|Me:||... you can't even tell me your company's name?|
|My mom besides me:||What are you doing?|
|Caller:||Are you interested in this job?|
|Me:||This is a pyramiding scam right?|
|My mom besides me:||What?!|
|Caller:||What?! No it's not! Blah blah blah|
|Me:||You can't even give me your company's name|
|My mom besides me:||Stop that!|
|Me to my mom:||But it's fuuuun|
|Caller:||This is not a pyramiding scam! (sort of shouting)|
|Me:||Why are you angry?|
|Caller:||I'm not angry! (Shouting)|
|Me:||Whatever you say.|
|Caller:||THIS IS NOT A PYRAMIDING SCAM! I DON'T LIKE YOUR ATTITUDE!!! @%$#^&!!!|
|Me:||Yeah… I don't like you too… (trying so hard not to laugh)|
|Me:||Bye bye! (with a cheerful tone) *hangs up*|
|My mom besides me:||You're so mean!|
|Me:||Yeah... but he deserves it|
He sure knows how to curse, haha. Clearly this isn't my first time making a fool out of them, but today's timing was perfect. I need to throw my stress away and here comes this guy waiting to be thrown at. Now I want a phone that can record my conversations so I can share them with you. haha. Anyway, be careful with these scammers, here are some tips you should know:
- They will mention that they're a billion-dollar/ multi-billion-dollar/ multi-something or something similar kind of company.
- They will mention "No Strings Attached".
- Won't tell you their company name (because they have none) [some will tell you a fake company name]
- If their "name" is unfamiliar, try asking for their website. Most companies now have their own websites (and these scammers have none).
- If you did managed to schedule for an "interview", the scammer won't mention that you need to bring your resume/CV.
And if you're confident enough that you're talking to a scammer. Do what I do! Make them cry! HAHA!
