Man Wastes Scammer's Time With Hilarious Game Of 'I Spy'
We've all read the emails: you've won some lottery you've never heard of before, you're entitled to a vast inheritance from someone you've never heard of, you need to buy a load of Amazon or iTunes gift cards in return for a shed load of dosh - it's all bollocks, and I'm mainly typing this as a reminder to my mum, who seems to feel the need to click on certain links attached to this shit.
The majority of us will delete the email as quick as we can, but this ballsy bastard enjoys pranking the scammers right back - so much so that this time he actually initiated a game of I Spy with one. Yes, LAD.
Tom Sheerin is now a bit of an expert when it comes to the ol' trolling the troll biz. Back in July he posted a glorious exchange with a scammer called 'Michael', telling him he did charity work with local prostitutes and explaining that he would use his 'prize money' to replace missing teeth.
Now, he's upped his game considerably. Not only did he successfully use the term 'moister than an oyster' but he also managed to get the scammer to engage in a game of I Spy and, of course, he documented the whole conversation.
This time it was 'Janet' - we've blurred out her picture because it's believed that she is a real person whose identity has been co-opted by a scammer.
After exchanging pleasantries, 'Janet' went straight in there saying: "Did you watch the CNN news last week that they talk about NBF Grant Money?"
Tom's response: "No, I must've missed it." These are the words of a man in the know.
'Janet' went on to explain what the 'Federal Government Grant with the conjunction of The National Business fund' was. She didn't sell it all too well, we'll be honest. She says that she applied for a grant and opted for 70,000...
Tom told 'Janet' a sob story before professing his love for her:
Completely ignoring his advances, 'Janet' went on to send Tom a link to another Facebook page where he could apply for the moolah.
After telling her that the link was taking him to a sex toy website - and sending a screen grab from Love Honey - Tom told 'Janet' that she could find him by searching 'BiggusDikkus'.
'Janet' asks: "They did not seen you. Are you not using Tom Sheerin again. But Tom Sheerin in your Facebook username."
Eventually Tom confessed to the confusion, telling her that 'BiggusDikkus' is his married name - so forgetful.
Tom then decided to explain to the scammer that he needed some luck and hoped that 2019 would be a better year after losing a testicle in a snowboarding accident - leaving him with three...
Then the real fun started:
And the guesses came thick and fast:
Tom wasn't completely happy with 'Janet's choice of I Spy object. He said: "How can you spy that if you can see through it?" He has a point.
'Janet' responded: "Am just kidding you since, you got it with the first answer". Well, if he wasn't already suspicious he was after that because NO ONE cheats at I Spy.
Tom came back with an object beginning with 'T' to which the scammer guessed: "Ticket." we all know it's really 'twat', don't we now?
'Janet' quickly got bored and started quizzing Tom about the progress of being absolutely ripped off by a scam.
But, unluckily for 'Janet', this wasn't Tom's first rodeo - he's dealt with attempted scammers in the past. He signed off by asking his new pal whether she owed any Louboutins because she would look 'banging' in them before adding: "Just put them on, I'll do the rest sugar".
Speaking to LADbible, Tom said: "Since the first post, I get people adding me and trying it on a daily basis but I don't really have the time to reply.
"Seeing as it's Christmas and I have a rare day off I thought I'd mess with them. I just figure while I'm taking up their time they're leaving someone else alone."
Not all heroes wear capes.
