Someone sent me this link today on what some people are doing to scammers in order to get more information and direct it to the police. I read this page all the way through. In order to fully get everything you have to read all the titles to see who is writing to who. It's kind of funny but they did get some info

The actual website is dedicated to people replying to the scammers and having slighting funny conversations with them.

Yeah well worth the reading...I was laughing so hard.....Just like when you get sales call.....right at 5PM when you are sitting down to dinner......I don't hang up anymore...I say ohhhhh can you hold on a minute somehting is burning on the stove,......will only take me a second.....then I put the phone down on the counter and we all sit down and eat dinner.....the scary thing is sometimes they hang up but the ones that don't...they just wait and wait and wait.....a hour later i pick up the phone and they are still there........uggggggggg

So my daughter does this thing now....she answers and they ask for me she says just a minute...she yells "MOM, some guy wants to talk to you on the phone" and I yell back "who is it" she says "I don't know, I think your boyfriend again, dad is gunna be mad...he said the next time that guy calls he is gunna shoot him" it goes on and on.......

do you know that most the time when you get a sales call it is long distance.....they usually bother you around dinner time...so hey the long you make them wait, the more money they spend on this call.....

LOL too funny! My best friend is only 24 like me and sometimes they call for those promo deals. You supposedly have to be at least 25, she plays them till the end makes them tell her why their calling and so on then says ohhh wait did you say I had to be 25 sorry i'm too young thank you though bye. She figures maybe they'll get tired of repeating all that junk for nothing lol. That original letter that was responded to on the website ... I have acutally received that and wrote them back. They pretty much said the same thing to me. I just ignored them after about 2 weeks of just deleting their messages they finally quit emailing me. What's sad is some people do fall for that stuff and get scammed! Teaches you that you have to be really careful. I don't open any emails unless I know who they are. Thanks for the great laugh that was hilariouse!
