Scammers are experts at tricking people. But for one Facebook scammer, it looks like the joke's on them. This hilarious scam gone prank is almost too good to be true.
British man James Stanley had the day off from work when he was contacted by a Filipino women via Facebook. The woman, whom he previously did not know, started a casual conversation with Stanley then quickly began asking for money. Knowing that it was a con, he decided to spend his afternoon stringing along his alleged "admirer". The result was priceless.
He began his elaborate tale by claiming he was "James from a small island that conquered the world once" and that he currently has a harem of four wives and is looking for new recruits.
Surprisingly, his ridiculous statements did not deter the scammer, who quickly steered the conversation back to the topic of money.
