Have you ever gotten a call from a scammer before? You know how it goes — they make up something about you owing someone a lot of money, or maybe there’s a “warrant out for your arrest.”
Many people are wise to these scammers’ tricks, but unfortunately, many others (usually the elderly) are fooled into sending a lot of money to someone who’s managed to trick them. In other words, these scammers are not just telemarketers “doing their job”— they’re ruining people’s lives for their own greed.
News anchor Jeannette Reyes, who works for FOX 5 Morning and Good Day D.C., gave one scammer a taste of his own medicine when she picked up the phone one day knowing that someone with nefarious intentions would be on the other end. And she recorded the whole thing.
Jeannette started off the call by playing along, buying into the scammer’s claim that she had a warrant out for her arrest. But when he asked for her credit card details, Jeannette let her anchor powers shine, and the results were just what we’d hope for.
