If you've ever been on the Internet, or just own a cell phone these days, you've probably come across a scammer in one form or another. Hell, you don't even need to try selling anything online and scumbags will call or text you from out of the blue, saying that you have a virus on your computer or posing as a friend who's stranded in some country overseas.
It's annoying as hell to deal with, but it's become a fact of life now. The worst part is many of these scammers are trying their stupid little plans from remote locations in other countries, so it's not like you can get at them and give them a well-deserved slap in the mouth.
However, you can get back at them.
