How I Punked a Google Play Gift Card Scam Artist

Ever get taken by a low life, scum sucking scam artist? Well most of us haven't but some of us have, like with the Douchebag's Trump University scam.  

Here's how I punked the stupidest, dumbest, most inept, and gullible sorry excuse of a scam artist that has ever lived.  

More...

A few days ago, out of no where, I received an email from an acquaintance of mine, Joyce Lehman.  It was a phishing email where someone else, the scam artist, had disguised their email address making it appear to be coming from Joyce.

It was obvious that it was a phishing scam email because the email was not personalized and warm like Joyce would have normally sent me.  

It was also very general and generic, like Joyce didn't even know me. Besides I also received a Gmail scam alert warning with the email advising me to beware of this email as it was suspected of being a phishing email. 

I decided to have some fun and play along with the scammer letting them think they were going to get some quick, fast and easy, free money out of me.   

But I was not going to make it easy for them.  I threw a few curves at them along the way in order to drag out the conversation as long as possible.

So I strung them along for as long as I could, by carrying on a never ending back and forth email conversation with them over several days.

I succeeded in my goal because we sent 118 back and forth emails over 4 days, hahahaaaa.   Yes, I couldn't believe it either.  118 emails over 4 days.  I believe that is an all time new record.  

Boy did I ever string them along!  And punked them good.  I really socked it to them.

I didn't really care about the time spent doing it as I was also doing other stuff on my laptop at the same time and having a lot of fun with this sorry excuse of a human being.

The best line in our email conversation was, "I can’t believe you could do something so disgusting as this. You sent me cards you googled online.  I can’t believe my eyes.  Go get a life."

There were some other really funny moments along the way which you'll find out when you read the time stamped email thread below.

Anyway, here is my story in our emails below.  Hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them and conversing with this low life, scumbag.

Thanks for your response. I am sorry for bothering you with this mail, I need to get a Google Play Gift Card for my friend's daughter it’s her birthday and i promised her already,  but I can't do this now because I'm currently stuck where i'm and i tried purchasing online but unfortunately no luck with that. Can you help get it online or from any store around you? I promise to pay back as soon as possible. Kindly let me know if you can handle this.                       

Await your soonest response.

No bother.  I don't buy techie stuff like that.  Don't know where to get it.  Not sure which stores carry it.  Can I buy it online?  or do I have to go into the store to buy it?  How much is the card?  Just outta curiosity, where are you stuck?

Thank you very much. Get the Total amount needed is $300 ($100 denomination) which is 3 cards, and I need you to gently scratch off the label at the back of the card to reveal the pin then take a picture of it showing the pin and have them sent to me via my email . So I can forward them to her with some Birthday Wishes.

Once again thank you.

Joyce, I can do that for you but I have no idea which stores carry stuff like that.  I have no idea where to buy stuff like that.  Can you please provide me with some names of stores near me that carry stuff like that.  That would make my life easier as I am swamped with work right now.  Where are you stuck Joyce?  I can come pick you up and give you a lift home.

Ok, thanks, that makes my life easier.  I'll buy it for you but can't go right now, as like I said, I'm swamped with work.  I'll go when things calm down as it's a zoo here.  If they don't have three $100 denomination cards in stock, is it ok if I get a single $300 card?  Are you on holidays?

Joyce LEHMAN

You can just get $50 denomination, which is 6 cards if they don’t have $100 denomination.

Are you visiting your family in Nova Scotia or New Brunswick?  If you're in Nova Scotia can you please do me a favor and bring me back some fresh, live lobsters like last time.  They were delicious, Cathy really enjoyed them.

Hey Joyce, I'm at the local Loblaws.  They don't have any Google Play Gift Cards.  But they do have the new Amazon Gift Cards which seem to be all the rage these days from what the store clerk told me.  Did you want me to buy the Amazon Gift Card for you or should I see if they have the Google Play Gift Cards at Shoppers?

Mark Blaise

I was right.  I checked with the store clerk. The new Amazon Gift Cards don't have scratch off PIN numbers.  If I buy the card, how, when and where will you get them from me because since they don't have PIN numbers I can't do the photo / email thingy you requested. You will need the actual card to use it or however, depending on the system Amazon uses for you to redeem the card.  Let me know how you want to proceed.

Mark Blaise

Thu, Aug 6, 2020, 2:31 PM (5 days ago)

The store clerk won't let me take a picture of the front and the back of the card for security reasons in case of theft.  She gave me a real dirty look when I asked her if I could.  I think she thinks something fishy is going on. Walmart has started putting these Gift Cards enclosed in glass show cases because they were experiencing too much theft of them.  Let me know soon because I have to get back to work.  I've already taken off past my break and will be returning late to work.

Sorry no, was busy rest of the day at work and didn't have any time this evening.  But I'll go tomorrow to one last place that a co-worker recommended to me.  It's a Rexall drug store about 10 minutes from my work.  He says they have all kinds of cards there.  Did Larry end up buying that fish finder he had his eye on?  Can't wait to go fishing with him in September.

Yeah, I hear you.  Cathy will be back within the hour or so.

So I spoke to Cathy.  She's really disappointed she won't be seeing you guys but agreed that your friend's kid should get her birthday present especially since you promised it to her.   The only problem is that Cathy brought up a very good point.  Emails can very easily be hacked by anyone.  She said it's not a good idea to send the PIN numbers of the gift cards by email because anyone can intercept them and use the cards before your friend's kids use's them and then both you and I would be left holding the bag.  If you think about it, it makes a lot of sense.  I didn't marry a dumb broad, hahahahaaa ...

Mark Blaise

Fri, Aug 7, 2020, 8:29 PM (4 days ago)

Joyce, what do you mean by trust you, "there's no problem"?  If the PIN's get intercepted by a hacker and the cards are basically stolen and used by someone else, that is a problem.  A big problem for you, me and your friend's daughter.  Don't you see the problem?  She doesn't get her birthday present and you're out $300 ... and you still have to reimburse me the $300 minus the cost of the lobsters.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

I’m not happy with what you are doing, I have to be sincere with you

I’m really sad with what you doing, I must confess

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Joyce LEHMAN

Sat, Aug 9, 2020, 11:25 AM (3 days ago)

Well to be honest with you, it doesn't really matter if you're not happy with me or sad with me.  I have to live with Cathy, not with you and am not willing to go against Cathy's better judgement.  Besides it's better to be on the safe side and not risk getting ripped off $300. Wouldn't you agree?  Not only that, if the girl thinks you're lying to her about it, then she needs to be more understanding. No kid can't wait a few extra days  and receive a belated birthday present.  She needs to stop being a spoiled, little brat about it.  Besides since her birthday was yesterday, she will already be getting her present late, so a few more days won't hurt her much more.

Hey, that's not right or fair Joyce.  I did you a favor and went out of my way twice on two different days hunting down those cards for you and bought you those specific cards because you insisted on them and not the Amazon Gift cards which would have saved me the time and all the running around to find them.  You better not be sticking me with holding those gift cards or our friendship is over and I'm done with you.  I strongly suggest you reconsider and meet up with me Tuesday to settle all of this, meaning the gift cards, the lobsters if you buy them for me and the money owing to me for the cards.

You know Joyce, you're really a piece of work.  Cathy told me she had some misgivings about you but I told her she was wrong and making something out of nothing.  But now, you've really shown your true colors and proved Cathy right.  You are an incredibly selfish, self-centered, unreasonable and ungrateful person, who can't be trusted and who doesn't keep their word.  You have no honor ending our friendship over $300 worth of cards. You're really not worth it as a friend, so good riddance.  I hope you rot in hell for how you've treated me.  I'm over, done with you once and for all.  Never again.

Joyce LEHMAN

Sat, Aug 8, 2020, 12:18 PM (3 days ago)

This wouldn’t have got to this if you send me the cards already so I Cambridge forward it to her 

You the one taking it far, why I’m doing this for her is because I owe her a lot, like she saved my life once I cant Ben going into that’s now that’s why I really want to get the cards sent to her latest tonight 

I hope you understand me, don’t think of me as being selfish or self centered, NO I’m not 

Please understand where I’m coming from I Owen the girl a lot.

Joyce, the only reason I did this is to protect all three of us, you, the kid and me, from possible hacked and stolen PIN card numbers leaving all of us to show for nothing.   I can understand you owe her a lot but it's still better to be on the safer side and for me to hand them over to you in person.  If it's important to you for her to get the cards latest tonight, then set your priorities and make the effort and come back into town today and we'll meet up tonight and I'll hand over the cards to you.  This way, if you want to email her the PIN numbers then that's you're business.  Because this way I will still be getting the $300 that you owe me back.  And if the PIN numbers do happen to get hacked and stolen by someone else, well, then that will be your responsibility for the kid not being able to use the cards and you losing the $300 in cards to someone else.

Sorry, I can't do that.  Cathy says it's not a good idea, as it involves twice the risk involving two emailing's for the kid to get the PIN numbers.  What time are you planning on getting back into town and what time did you want to meet up today?

I beg of you to send the cards and Cathy wouldn’t be aware of it, I’ll come to town on Tuesday and have the cards knowing full well you’ve sent the cards already, I won’t tell Cathy about it 

Please understand

Sorry, Cathy already knows about the cards.  And we don't hide and keep secrets from each other, especially over something so trivial as $300 worth of Gift cards. That's not how our relationship and marriage works.  It's based on truth and honesty.  And I'm certainly not going to start lying to her because of you.

Okay, let her know I want the cards sent today when she’s back that no matter what happens I’ll take responsibility for it

I’ll surely refund you your $300 as soon as I’m back in town on Tuesday

And just to let you know Cathy saw the email you just sent me because she has also being reading this email thread and now trusts you even less.  You shouldn't have written me something like that to go behind Cathy's back and lie to her, keeping her in the dark about secretly emailing you the PIN numbers.

If she has been reading our conversation then she should also care about the girl in question she really needs the cards

I’m sorry to have ask you to do things behind her but trust me I’ll take responsibility for whatever happens if you send the cards to me now

I promise to refund you as soon as I’m back in town on Tuesday 

I’ll surely refund you

Cathy also read the email you just sent me.  She is firmly against me emailing anybody any card PIN numbers as there's too much risk involved for them getting hacked and stolen.  Sorry, it's not gonna happen.  When did you want to meet up today when you get back into town?

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Mark Blaise

Sat, Aug 8, 2020, 12:57 PM (3 days ago)

She does care about the girl and that's why she is against emailing the PIN card numbers because if they get hacked and stolen, then the kid gets nothing and you're out $300, and that's if you still will refund me the $300.

Sure she can use it after today.  Don't forget, there is no expiry date on the card.  And she won't be using it just for one day, today.  She'll be using it whenever she feels like it in the future.

Well then come back into town today and I'll hand over the cards to you.  Since you consider this to be important enough to you that she gets it today, you really shouldn't be irresponsible like you're behaving now.  You really need to smarten up and set your priorities straight and drive back into town today to get the cards, especially since I've gone out of my way for you to hunt them down and find them and also lay out my own cash for them. You're really starting to piss me off now the way you are handling this, wasting my time with these endless back and forth emails.  So smarten up and let's get this over with.

There’s no way I can come back to town today, I told you I’m with my family here I can’t just leave here like that without making them know beforehand.

You should send the cards now, so I can forward it to her and I’ll pay you back as soon as I’m back in town on Tuesday

Sat, Aug 8, 2020, 2:28 PM (3 days ago)

Ok that's it.  I'm done with you.  You know that's not gonna happen. Right now all I care about is you paying me back the $300 you owe me when you get back into town and I'll hand over the cards to you. Right now, I couldn't care less if the kid gets the PIN's or not.  I don't care if she gets a birthday present or not.  I couldn't care less if she feels you're lying to her.  I don't care if you're unhappy or sad with me.  I don't care if you bring me back any lobsters. You have wasted enough of my Goddamn time.   I'm sooo pissed off at you, it's not funny. You are so irresponsible, it's unbelievable.  Cathy was right. You are a frickin' good for nothing pain in the ass.   After we settle this card thing on Tuesday, not only am I not going to do you any more favors ever again, I don't want to hear from you ever again. Understand?!?!

So you're sticking me with holding the cards, eh?  Out $300 cash eh? You're a real piece of work.  You're nothing but low life scum.  You're a good for nothing piece of shit.  If you do this to me, just remember I know where you live.  This is not a threat, just a fact.  And as you know in life bad things happen to bad people.  It's called Karma. Some time in the very near future something really bad will happen to you and then you'll remember how you treated me.

Hey Joyce, Cathy was not too happy with me about how all of this turned out, especially since we're now out $300 and left holding the bag with the gift cards which we have absolutely no use for.  Not only that, she was not too happy with me about the last email I sent you. She insists that I apologize to you, so I apologize.  She decided given the situation, it's best that we email you the PIN numbers today and when we meet up on Tuesday evening after you get back into town, you can reimburse us then for the cards.  If you can still get the lobsters for us that would be greatly appreciated.  Let me know if all of this is still ok with you given my last email where I flew off the handle with you.

Ok, here they are.  I did as you instructed and gently scratched off the back.  The PIN numbers are legible and clearly visible. One of Cathy's friends showed me how to encrypt emails so they don't get hacked.  So I encrypted this email in case it gets intercepted.  This way no one can open up the email and get the PIN's.  Only you, the receiver can see and read the email.  I suggest you do the same before you send the PIN's to the kid so they don't get stolen.  Just let me know what time we're meeting up on Tuesday for the Lobsters and the money you owe me. Hope this works for you.  Let me know. Take care. Thanks.

The receipt???  I paid for it by credit card.  I don't have the store receipt here.  Not sure if I kept the receipt or if I did it's probably at work.  Why would you need the receipt for it anyway?  The cards are good.  All you have to do is use them.

What?  Redeemed?  You're joking right.  Can't be.  It's a brand spanking new card.  I scratched them off myself. Nobody has touched them except for me, so they can't be redeemed.  As for US / Canada card, that's probably an error on Google's part.  They must have sent the wrong cards to Canada.  Tell her to redeem them on Google's US site, not on their Canadian site.  I'm sure they'll still work. The cards are good.  I bought them myself.

What?  Joyce, this is getting ridiculous.  I've already sent you the PIN numbers.  Just use the PIN numbers on Google's US site.  They are good.  They will work.  Besides, Cathy has already cut up the cards into small pieces, like she does when her credit cards expire.  She does it out of habit for safety's sake to prevent identity theft in case people go through our garbage.

Hey Joyce, since I haven't heard from you since this morning, I'm assuming that everything went well when the kid entered the PIN numbers on the Google US site.

Joyce, what the hell are you talking about?  Those aren't Googled cards.  Well yes, they are Google's cards but not Googled cards, hahaha.  I have no idea what you are talking about or why the kid is claiming that.  It really doesn't make any sense.  I didn't do anything disgusting. The cards are good.  I bought them myself and scratched off the PIN numbers myself.  I think the kid is pulling a fast one on you to get more free cards out of you.  Are you sure you can trust her?   How well do you really know her?  Because kids these days aren't stupid, they can be really conniving and manipulative to get what they want.

If I were you, I would speak to the kids mother about this because this just isn't right.  The kid needs to be taught a lesson so she doesn't do something like this again.  She's basically accusing you of being mean and malicious and teasing her with a fake birthday present and phony cards, when the cards are good and work.  And what's worse is that you are accusing me of the same thing when I bent over backwards for you and went out of my way to help you out by getting them for you.   The kid's ungrateful and needs to be taught a lesson.

Tue, Aug 11, 2020, 5:28 PM (1 day ago)

Reason being is that I know you are a low life, scum of the earth, good for nothing scammer.  I saw through your very first email to me, it was obvious that you were running a scam.                                                                                                                                                           But what you don't know is that I'm only 8 years old, hahahahaaaa ... Yes, that's right, 8 years old. An 8 year old kid punked you, hahahahaaa.   

                                                                                                                      You see, I use my Dad's email because he doesn't want me to get my own in order to protect me from people like you and other vile, scary stuff on the internet.  

And since I have lots of free time on my hands, given that I'm at home right now because of the Coronavirus, I figured I'd have some fun with you and see how long I could string you along for, while you tried to scam me out of $300. 

Did you know that I strung you along for 4 days and 118 back and forth emails?  hahahahhaa.  Now that's pretty funny.  I believe it's a record.  

You have to be the stupidest, dumbest, most inept, failure of a scam artist who has ever lived.  You actually believed all of my BS and all of the crap that I wrote.  

You were so desperate to get a free, easy $300 out of me that you let me string you along, having you respond to all of those emails hahaha, count them if you don't believe there are 118 of them ... and waste your time.  

Now that is really funny.  I really can't stop laffing my ass off.

The best part of all of this is I really had you going the whole time, first with not knowing which stores to buy the cards at, then none of the stores having the cards, but then at the last minute I gave you hope by finding a store that had the cards, hahahaha ...

Now that's funny. It's really priceless.  I couldn't have played you any better.  

It was also really funny when you pleaded and begged me to send you the cards, hahahahaaa ... And then I sent you pics of the cards that I had Googled, hahahahahaaaaa ...  now that was laff my ass off funny.

What made all of this so effective is that I made all of my emails to you so real.  You honestly and truly believed me and what I said in those emails to you or you obviously wouldn't have continued responding to my emails, hahahahaaaa.  

I can' believe how stupid and dumb you are.  I was laffing my ass off the whole frickin' time. 

You really need to go to scam artist school because you're obviously too dumb to scam people on your own ...

Oh, and by the way, my Dad has already contacted the RCMP.  He has forwarded all of our emails to the RCMP Cyber Crimes unit.  

The Google Play Gift Card scam has been going on for way too long and some others have been scammed by it. The RCMP takes this really seriously and will be investigating our email communications.  

The RCMP told us that the mistake you made was using two different email threads.  The fact that this was done over two email threads makes it a lot easier for the RCMP to track you down.  

When you hear a knock on your door within the next few days, don't be surprised to see RCMP officers who will be handcuffing, charging you and locking you up in prison until your case is heard or bail is posted.  

Just wanna give you a heads up.  Sleep well.

You see, people won't believe how stupid, dumb, inept and gullible you really are by me just telling my story to them.  

But when they see all of these back and forth emails between us they will not only believe me but will also be laffing their ass off at you, hahahahhahahaaaaaaaa ...

Hey Joyce, I just wanted to find out if you'd like me to pick up some more of those Google Play Gift cards you wanted.  

I have to go to Rexall and get some stomach ache medicine because my belly is really aching from rolling on the floor and laffing my ass off at you.  

I swear, you have to be the most stupid, dumb, inept and gullible person and sorry excuse of a scam artist I've ever met.  

This time I promise I won't send you any pictures of expired, Googled, Google Play US gift cards, hahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa ...

Hey Joyce, since I haven't heard from you does that mean that you don't want me to get you any more Google Play Gift cards?  

I'll buy them for you and GIVE them to you for FREE.  I promise.  Trust me. 

And if you believe that, then I've also got a really nice piece of swampland to sell you in Florida.   It's in the nice, sunny Everglades.  

You'll be wet most of the time wading through the mosquito infested marshes.  But it has a great security system.  

The Gators and Crocks will securely protect you until they tear you apart limb by limb and eat you up for supper, hahahahahaaaaaa ...
