So I was doing my usual trolling of SSA lines and I came across a scammer who gave me the requisite spiel about how my number was compromised and such... Until I told him I was "77 years old" and how The SSA called me a year ago and demanded I buy Target gift cards for them.
Imagine my surprise when he came right out and told me to not answer any of these calls anymore because they are scams.
I immediately broke character and commended him for not being as soulless as everyone else I talk to on a daily basis. After that we had a discussion about other job opportunities and business ventures that could benefit him way more than stealing from the innocent. He could be completely pulling my chain but at the very least I killed 30 minutes that he could've scammed someone else. I don't know though. Is there a chance some of these awful people could be converted?
