If you’ve never tried retaliating against a Mandarin-speaking phone scammer before, maybe it is time to start.
To get you started, here is how you bait, troll and verbally abuse a phone scammer, according to this Singaporean auntie who absolutely killed it in the following one-minute video.
Scammer: Yes. Police headquarters here.
Scammer: Do you know what is your issue here?
Auntie: That’s what I am here to find out. What is the matter here because why is the police calling me?
Scammer: Okay, we are calling from the police headquarters.
Auntie: Which police headquarters is this?
Scammer: Okay, this is Cantonment Police Station.
Auntie: Cantonment is at Potong Pasir, is it?
Scammer: Yes, that is absolutely correct.
Auntie: Correct your big head ghost. Cantonment is at Delta House [???]. Your mother.
Auntie’s sidekick auntie: You’re crazy. You think Singaporeans are very nice to bluff?
Auntie: Curse your ancestors. May you not have offspring.
Auntie: Correct? Correct your mother.
Auntie’s sidekick auntie: Catch your mother and rape.
Both aunties: [Laughs in Singaporean]
This, ladies and gentlemen, is how it is done.
By the way, there is a new scam going around where the Singapore police hotline number 1800-255-000 is made use of.
Guess this exercise in trolling will come in handy if you choose to exchange pleasantries with the scammer.
