How to Scam Scammers Into Giving You Money

Have you ever stayed on the phone with a scammer, just to waste their time?  Well, this is even better!  A 22-year-old college kid in Ireland says he figured out a way to get scammers to give HIM money.  And he’s pulled it off three separate times. Earlier this month, he got an email from someone claiming to be a “big business banker,” who was looking for an investment of about $1,200.  So here’s what he did…

First, he acted VERY interested, said he wanted to invest MORE than that, and asked if he could send them $60,000.
Second, he emailed them a fake PayPal invoice that made it LOOK like he tried to transfer them the money.

Then when the scammer didn’t receive the funds, he claimed his bank put a hold on the transfer, because they thought it was a scam.  And he told the scammer THEY needed to transfer a small amount of money to him first, so the bank would know it was legit.

They ended up sending him about $30.  Then he donated their money to a cancer charity, and sent them an invoice letting them know THEY’D been scammed.
