Beware of Jamaican/Nigerian phone scammers. I just received a call from one of them. How do they get our phone numbers?
He told me he was from publishers clearing house and that he had a cashiers check for me from UPS, and then he gave me a “confirmation” number. He then told me to go to Walmart and send a money order. I stopped him there and told him I knew it was a scam. I told him I knew he was sitting in a shithole in Africa and he then called me a dirty white piece of shit.
I told him I wasn’t stupid and that I knew exactly what he was trying to do and then I hung up on him.
He called back and admitted to being in Africa and then started begging me to help him, he was fake crying, telling me he’d be my best African friend if I’d just help him leave the shit hole he lives in. I hung up on him again. He hasn’t called back
I thought he might be Nigerian but now I think the scumbag was Jamaican, because of his accent.
