You mean I won a free resort stay, valued up to $3,000 if I just pay $200 up front!? Break out the major credit card or pre-paid visa gift card!

Everyone has recieved a call or text at some point that has clearly been a scam. It's hard to believe that anyone falls for these types of phone and text scams, but believe it or not, many people still do. Unfortunately for the scammer, however, not everyone is as helpless and ignorant as they would like them to be. Most millenials can smell a scammer from a mile away. Free trip ro the carribbean, if I just give you my social security number? Well golly. Sign us up.

Bored Panda recently posted a text exchange between one man who took the bait for laughs, and we're sure glad he did. Read the exchange below and if you've got a good one, share your own scammer story in the comments.

My scammer story:
A scammer tried to lure me over Xbox messages (somehow managed to search specifically for females on the Xbox) and tried to persuade me to join in on “her” plan to sell live webcam “shows.” I should trust her though because “her and her girlfriend have been making so much money doing it!”

Back when Nigerian Prince scams were still a thing, I convinced the guybthrough a series of emails to send me his "cash" through the post service. (around 30 10lb boxes) He was then to have the boxes taken to Maryland, where I would pick them up. I eventually stopped responding, because I was rather nervous about how elaborate it was getting.
