I got through. Dude raged very hard as I wasted a bunch of his time by pretending to be a geriatric person (taking a while to walk to computer, mistyping keys, "you need me to get my tv remote?" when they talk about remote connecting, etc.) before finally speaking normally.
He tried to somehow make light of what he was doing by saying we will only make it worse. He claimed because I wasted his time he will scam the next person out of an additional $50 and will continue that pattern for every baiter who calls. Lol
