Re: This is hilarious.

I know a lady who was told by a random scam phonecall that their bank account had been compromised and to move all her money to a particular account.

Despite all of us telling her it was bogus, her bank telling her it was bogus and even the police (called by the bank) telling her it was bogus. She still believed the scammer and transferred all her cash to this random person.

People are generally stupid. Does't matter what you do to try and help them. Although E-Commerce could be better though.
