Conversation with a fraudster: Apparently I won an SUV on some Amazon Prime Lottery

Had the most amazing conversation just now. Brace yourself and read this:

Received a call from an unknown number telling me I have won lucky draw of Amazon company and have won a Tata Safari.

The generous caller gave me two options, either opt for the car or get the cash equivalent to the value of the car.

Since now I am in Gurgaon now, like any other person living here, I opted for the SUV.

The caller asks me to send my photograph and Aadhaar copy over WhatsApp and pay 8,000 Rs as processing charges.

At this point I asked the caller, “din me kitne logon ko aap aise bewakoof bana lete ho?”

The caller replied, “10-12.”

Me: Sahi hai boss, din ka 80K se 1L tak bana lete ho matlab.

Caller: Nahi. Dena bhi padta hai naa.

Me: Police ko? Kitna dete ho?

Caller: Din ka 10K.

Me: Matlab police bhi mili hui hai?

Caller: Police to 5 Rs me bik jaye, hum to 10K dete hain din ka.

Me: Aise gareebon ko lootna band karo. Nahi kisi din dande padenge.

Caller: Kaon marega dande. Police hi humare sath hai. Ab unse upar kaon hai?

Me: Police ke upar bhi hain log. Lootna acchi baat nahi hai.

Caller: Sir ab aap ek baat batao, abhi ek din ek vakeel ne hume 1L rupaye diye. Ab wo sabko lootta hoga. Humne usko loot liya to kya galat kiya.

Me: Hume to mat looto. Humari sab mehnat ki kamai hai.

Caller: Ab aapka number aaya to humne call kar diya. Aap aache admi lag rahe hain, warna loot to hum lete hi.

Me: Samjhdar aadmi ko aise lootna aasaan kaam nahi hai. Bewakoofon ko hi loot sakte ho. Ab tum Amazon bhi to dhang se bol nahi paate ho.

Caller: Aap manoge nahi kitne bewakoof hai. Vakeel se lakh rupaye loote hi nah humne.

This went on for some time and the caller kept justifying himself and was confident that he is doing nothing wrong and nobody can harm him. So I terminated the call wishing him all the best.

My only advice to anyone receiving such calls – Don’t Overestimate Your Luck.
