answered a scam call today and had the most bizarre conversation
scam caller: hello, how are you today? me: great!
scam caller: good. I'm calling because your IP address has been compromised. I'll just need you to get in front of your computer so we can get your account fixed up.
me: okay! there is one thing I'm wondering, though scam caller: what?
me: you really couldn't think of a better lie?
me: like, my "IP address has been compromised."

me: I was just wondering, is all scam caller: why did you answer? me:
scam caller: if you knew this wasn't a legitimate call, then why did you answer?
me: oh, I just though I would have some fun at your expense.
scam caller: what expense? talking is no expense to me.
me: well, you're currently not accomplishing your goal
scam caller: my goal?
me: your goal of scamming my elderly grandmother.
You're not accomplishing that. I'd call that an expense.
scam caller: well, can I scam you?
me: did you- did you ask if you can scam me? scam caller: yes. can I scam you?
me, baffled: sure, you can try
scam caller: you need to get in front of your computer
me: yeah, that's still a problem. I'm eating tater tots right now and I really don't feel like getting up.
scam Caller: okay. I will call you tomorrow morning, then.
me: I might not answer. My grandma definitely won't.
scam caller: You answered today.
scam caller: I will call you tomorrow. Have a good day.
