I get hit with phone scams a lot. Had an experience that actually put it into perspective today. I got the computer service call about there being something wrong with my computer. I often go along with them and waste 5-10 minutes of their time, playing dumb in the tasks they ask me to do on my computer. After I get bored, I then ask them if they are proud with themselves being crooks, explaining I know what they are doing, and I am just wasting their time. Usually they either cuss and hang up or just hang up at that point. Today the guy stayed on the line. So I continued, asking if he looks in the mirror at night and is proud with himself, and asks if his grandparents would be proud of him. He just sat there, so I continued with more. He was silent. I then asked, why he was still on the line, after I called him out. Silence. I then asked, how long are you going to do scams like this. Silence. I then asked, if he will get into trouble for staying on the line after I called him out as a scammer. He said yes. I then asked, what are you a slave? a timid and short Yes was the reply. I then said I was sorry what I said about him personally and hope something is done to help his situation. He said in a timid voice, almost sounded like he was crying, "thank you sir" and I hung up. Do you think these people are slaves/prisoners/etc.? Or just con artist themselves?
