Woman Goes Viral After Convincing Scammer to Stop Scamming
Comedian and TikToker Ramina Rated went viral after she posted a video of her messing with a scam caller. The video was posted in two parts, but it's the second part that blew up.
The scammer she's speaking to refers to himself as Albert and is trying to get information out of her as she messes with him. After goofing around and giving him false information for a while, she decides to take a turn with the conversation. She stops Albert for a moment and asks him for a favor.
Albert agrees to do her a favor, and she proceeds to tell him about the Bollywood singing she has been practicing and asks if he would like to listen to her sing and tell her if he thinks it sounds good. He seems confused and is trying to stop the conversation from derailing as he continues asking her questions about the scam. This doesn’t stop her as she starts singing for him.
Albert doesn’t seem to know how to respond as he asks her to sing it again. She continues to sing for him as he seems to put her on speaker for his coworkers to hear her sing. You can hear him calling for them to come to listen before asking her to sing one more time, complementing her voice. She continues to play along as if she's serious about needing his critique, and it is absolutely hilarious. He even records her singing and doesn't believe that it’s actually her voice.
Once everyone is so distracted from the original intent of scamming her, she asks Albert to stop trying to scam people. She mentioned how their scams tend to work on older people, and that a lot of the time they don’t have much money. Surprisingly, Albert agrees with her that he will stop scamming.
Obviously, that one silly conversation is not likely to actually stop this man from being a scam caller, but the fact that this woman was able to create such a funny moment like this and get a scammer to break character is amazing.
