    I finally get one of the scam calls payable only with iTunes gift cards lol. I wonder how many people fall for this stupidity? Should I rush out and buy those iTunes card before the jack booted thugs come for me in their blacked out choppers?

    The period on their keyboard doesn't work.

    EDIT: just saw this was a transcription of a phone call. Probably why there are no periods.

    They've got to be upping their game around the holidays or something. I rarely get spam calls on my 10 year old flip phone, now they're coming once a day at least.

    I see these videos on youtube where the victim allows the scammer to take control of his computer and then uploads a virus to wipe out the scammers computers. I don't know if it's real but the scammers usually scream and try to get it to stop.

    I have the Hiya app running on my iphone and that app flags calls before I answer them (spam, spoofed number, etc). It has definitely gone into overdrive lately, but this was the first time that these idiots left a voice mail.

    If our government was doing its job, the number above should be called by a CIA member with tracing device/software with a hotline to a drone strike team.

    But they can’t do that, they can send guns to cartels in Mexico, bother people for building guns at home and threaten lawful businesses.
