Wasting A Phishing Scammers Time

Perhaps is wiser to just ignore blatant phishing scams, but I like to string them along sometimes. Last night was one of those times.

I received a chat from someone I don’t know very well on Facebook last night. I decided to play along as soon as I realized it wasn’t really them, here’s the whole chat including my txt messages. I’m posting this here in hopes that maybe someone else who they try to scam might google some of this information and find this chat.

I wonder if “ROBERT POPE Address : 48386 E 2ND ST, OAKRIDGE OREGON 97463” really was who I was txt-ing with at 13602956391 or if he was someone not involved who was getting paid for something else by the scammers?

If you are Robert Pope and are wondering why your name is showing up here, read below ๐Ÿ™‚

This all took place while I was waiting for my son to finish gymnastics and while I was picking him up and getting dinner for him. We had a big discussion about phishing scams, nigerian princes etc. Even he said “And people fall for this?”

Oh and if you want to play along, send a txt message to 13602956391 and tell them you want your free money ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Friends-Hacked-Account


    have you talk to him

  • Matthew Baya

    I did and he sent me info on where to send money to but my wife started worrying about fishing scams, so I’m confused

    what is a fishing scam?

  • Friends-Hacked-Account

    Ohh no nothing you just have to send him the money and stay home and he will come to your house in the next 5hours

    are you there

  • Matthew Baya

    but he’s in Oregon, how could he come to my house in 5 hours? That doesn’t make sense

  • Friends-Hacked-Account

    I got my own money 5hours after I pay him

    So i’m very sure you going to get yours the same time also but ask him when is going to deliver your money I mean how many hours

  • Friends-Hacked-Account

    did you get me

  • Matthew Baya

    Well it’s too late for me to go out again and my wife keeps saying stuff about fishing, so I’m just confused on what’s going on here.

    Hello Matthew

    how is you?

More lies, damn lies and bad science from the Heartland Institute

Got another “scientific report” (read that with ‘finger quotes’) from the folks at the conservative thinktank The Heartland Institute. If you actually read my blog much (don’t worry, I have no illusions that anyone really does) you might remember an entry I made last December titled Lies, Damn Lies & the Heartland Institute (still love that title) when I got another report from them. I did some research then on who they were then since a quick glance at the letter and report they sent me then made me quite suspect as to the ‘real science’ it claimed to contain.

Just to recap, the the Heartland Institute is

รขโ‚ฌล“A nonprofit organization devoted to discovering, developing, and promoting free-market solutions to social and economic problems”.

Yeah those free-market solutions always do the best thing for society and making the world a better place. Capitalism is infallable.
