Sup foo?! Just a little story I have for you.
Today I got a call from this number 210-568-5796. I spoke with a Spanish speaking gentleman informing me that he was a smuggler of illegal aliens, and that they had transported a family member of mine and had him in their posession.
The funny thing is; I don't have any family in Mexico. I do know spanish, but I also know Japanese, and some Italian and Portuguese. So I decided to talk with this guy.
The first time I just left them on the line for 0:30 min until they hung up. Next day they called again and I told them that YES, I am waiting for a family member to be delivered by the name of "Delphino" (I know it's not very authentic, but I had to make it up on the spot). I asked them if it was him they had transported. The caller seemed flustered and confused and said he would check and call back. I then asked "why do you have to check didn't you smuggle him?". He said that yes but that there were many smugglers involved in the operation.
He called back and informed me that it was INDEED "Delphino" they were holding, and that I would need to pay $1600 dollars to get him. I then told them that "I am surprised that 'Delphino' did not pay for himself" and asked him if "Delphino" had not given them any money. They said they would check and call back in 10 min. They called again and they said that yes "Delphino" had INDEED given them money, but he only gave them half. I told them that I did not have any money with me now, but that I would go and get some from my siblings fast, and it would be ready in an hour.
One hour later they called back asking if I had the money. I told them that I had spoken with my sister and that she said that "she had spoken with "Delphino" last night and he had not left the 'pueblo' at all". They then pretended to wonder who they had with them then, and said that "surely Delphino is scheduled on the next trip". I then said that "I surely hope he is".
Is there even "plueblos" still in mexico???
I am thinking of calling them at like 2-5am (because I am awake at that hour) from a disposable phone I have and prank call them. Maybe try scams on them too. I'll do that until I get bored.
Any suggestions from Foo?
