Who scams the Scammer?
Once upon a time, By their English, you will identify them. Not this time.
The scam industry is getting interesting now, as professionals are getting involved. They speak good English. They dot their I-s and cross their T-s
I was browsing Facaebook, then came across a post which I’m finding it difficult to trace again. But the content was simple and I liked it:
If you have limited Internet knowledge, you see everything Internet business as a scam
It was posted by this gentleman
As someone with interest in Internet Business, I knew I can do more things with Patrick Johnson. So I sent him friend request.
That ended the day. That was yesterday.
This afternoon I got his message on facebook. My friend’s request was not accepted though.
Good good!! I will surely do business with Patrick.
In less than a minute, I added him on whatsapp
Then the conversation started.
This was a red flag straight up
My is as simple as it appears, we recruits work force from all over the world, not mind religion, color or race to work in our company,APPLE INC, am sure you have heard bout our giant firm?
That is not HOW apple does its recruitment.
I decided to check his facebook account again.
- Everything about his account is from June 14 to July 1 2018. Meaning it’s a new account.
- All his friends are hidden. A typical sign of the bad guys. Previously, their profile will say USA but all their friends will be Ghanaians. Which don’t make sense. They’ve learned a lesson now.
- I’m not fooled by his USA number. I can decide to use US number here in Ghana, if I so wish. I alter have an account with Twillo, they provide such services for both sms and voice. I know virtual numbers paa.
- I also did a bit of reverse engineering in Google with his profile picture but didn’t get any meaningful info. I really don’t believe the guy whose picture I’m seeing, is really the one am chatting.
One of the best way to deal with scammers is to just waste their time. Just pretend your Idiot and let them spend all their time on you. That saves other people.
He has below picture to indicate he knows something about Work Permit. Check below.
And few other pictures, relating to apple. Below are examples.
All is clear, the guy is a scammer but just for the fun, I said lemme continue with this dude.
In about 3 hours time, he posted.. Of course, he needs that latency to prove he’s a busy guy
Finally, the form came.
It must be filled and send back within 24hrs. Below is the full view of the form.
Take note! No apple Logo. No company details. Just a raw form.
Will apple send a form to be filled with pen?
God wiling tomorrow, I will fill, scan and send to him and see what’s next.
