Navigating through online scams has become an affair as more people have begun relying on online monetary transactions. The three most popular online scams are work-from-home opportunities, lottery scams, and fake bank messages. While unfortunately a few fall prey to these scams, most of them ignore them. However, one woman decided to troll the scammer using her wit and sarcasm.

According to Pal’s screenshots, the scammer identified himself as Devikar from Mumbai, a recruiter at Taurus Capital Company Limited. He offered her a job if she watched a given YouTube video for 10 seconds, liked it, and subscribed to the channel. The scammer then told her that she'd be given a total of three tasks, with the above-mentioned being the first one.

Noting that the number wasn’t even India-based, Pal decided to play along. She was supposed to send a screenshot of her watching the video after liking and subscribing to it. Instead, Pal sarcastically sent a screenshot of a YouTube video that read, "Caught some idiot trying to scam."

The scammer wrote back, saying that this wasn’t their link. Pal replied, asking them if they would pay 50 percent of the promised amount upfront, and then she would like and subscribe to the video.

The scammer responded, saying that she has to do the three tasks, and if she doesn’t receive any money later, she could dislike the video and unsubscribe from the channel.

Pal responded, saying that since they would have already gotten her view, how is it unfair? She then said, "We both know that you won’t pay the money and you are trying to scam, and you’re the 15th person, so why don’t you just apply to my company for cold sales?" She further asked the scammers for their LinkedIn profiles.

Usually, receivers will be the ones to block scammers. But after being trolled by Pal, the scammer blocked her number. The last messages are from Pal, asking if they have blocked her and offering the scammer a job at her company so they could hone their sales skills.

Pal’s post entertained netizens and a few users even shared how they handled such scam messages in their own funny ways.
