I called a number, that was posted on another scambaiting forum, a few times. (I think it may be dead, but I’ll post it below). I assume they were already being pestered at that point because the only answer I received was dead silence, followed by curse words the first two times I called. The third time I was put on with someone with a more American sounding accent. I asked a couple questions and apparently he was an actual potential victim who was calling the number.
The scammers were being pestered with calls at that point, so they must have thought he was another prankster and immediately conferenced him with me. He turned out to be a pretty respectful and nice sounding young man, probably in his mid teens. When I realized what was happening I told the young man that he had called scammers and explained what was happening and why he was now talking to me. He said he was honestly just confused because he called the number about his $500 refund and someone answered the phone by saying "benchode" then immediately connecting him with me.😂
That was definitely one of the more interesting experiences I've had in all my years of messing with these people. I'll remember that one. 😆😂
