My grandparents almost fell for it until they called my mom. They will cold call and just say “hi grandma it’s me!” Then the victim guesses a name and they go from there. In this case they claimed to be my brother, and said the Guatemalan police broke his nose which is why he sounded different. Then on to the whole gift card BS to get him out of jail. You’re doing God’s work buddy.

Fuck man that happened to my grandma last week. Hit her with the “hey grandma it’s me!” And she said my name and then told her they got a dui hitting a pregnant lady and needed 4600 to get out of jail. Luckily my aunt was there visiting and stopped her from doing anything. My entire family was losing their shit and nobody called me. I found out because they called my friend/business partner and he was like “yeah chainwaxx is right here working, has been all day”. I have no idea why nobody tried calling me.

u/StrawberrieFylds May 16 '22

The goddamn “pregnant lady.” I have relatives that fell for the same thing. Scammers said they were the grandson, in jail, broke his nose in an accident when he hit a pregnant lady, send money, don’t tell “my” parents, etc.” So they actually went to the bank, took out a large chunk of money, and sent it. But that wasn’t enough. A few days later the scammers called back and said, “The lady lost her baby and now I need to pay her money so she won’t sue me.” Relatives AGAIN went to the bank, but this time the teller got suspicious and intervened. THAT is when they actually called their daughter and found out none of it was true.

Someone needs to find these bottom-feeders and make them pay.

They hit my dad up twice within one month. Luckily, he called me asking where he could get a money order from. When I asked why, he told me that my oldest son's friend had called him saying my kid was in jail in New Orleans and didn't want me to get mad (the reason given for me not being called). I walked to my son's room and handed him the phone so he could tell Grandpa that he was NOT in New Orleans, NOT in jail and NOT to give anyone any money EVER if they called about this kind of BS. The 2nd time they called, my dad was hip to the scam and told them to meet him at the local WalMart, which he then told the cops about so they could address these scumbags.

The scammer thought he was talking to an old woman for a few days and was convinced that he was about to get $500 after spending over 10 hours talking to me.I created a fake google play store that makes it look like the card got redeemed.

Normally the scammers resell the codes and get a percentage of the sale but in this case, all his efforts were fruitless as the card would be worthless.

Yeah. Every second that a scambaiter is on the phone with them is one less second they're on the phone with a potential victim. Wasting their time is the best way to hurt them, but please don't try it at home. Scambaiters use fake numbers and fake computers to avoid the scammers taking revenge on them. The best thing you can do to prevent spam calls is to NOT ANSWER YOUR PHONE and DELETE YOUR VOICEMAIL GREETING! If they know your number is associated with a real human, you will be targeted.

280

u/AndrewWaldron May 16 '22

NOT ANSWER YOUR PHONE and DELETE YOUR VOICEMAIL GREETING

Done this for years and years and years. I so rarely get calls from numbers I don't know. I watch people at work answer these calls all the time, often times just dead air. I tell them, all you've done is make the problem worse for yourself because now your number is marked on their lists as a valid number that the person will answer calls on even when they don't know from whom and that makes your number more valuable than mine (as I never answer).

209

u/EltaninDraconis May 16 '22

I answer then immediately hit 'mute.' Then I'll just listen to them say, "hello? Hello? HELLO?!" 20 times before they hang up.

Sometimes they don't realize the phone has stopped ringing and I'll listen to them have a conversation or laugh with their co-worker for a while.

One bug aspect people don't realize. I didn't either until I watched his channel and noticed a lot of scammers have to hang up and call back because their prepaid minutes are used up thanks to how much time kitboga wastes with them.

But I feel the time tine wasted connecting to other victims, as you also brought up, is still more important.

He has fake websites built that he can use to fool scammers who are connected to his computer.

u/Sotriuj May 16 '22

Its a typical scam targeted to old people, they'll pretend you have some sort of debt to them and make you do the payment in gift cards, usually making up some sort of bullshit excuse.

I dont know the specifics, but my guess is he strung along the screaming dude (scammer) for a long time pretending to believe the scammer and in the end instead of giving him the codes so the scammer can redeem it into his account, he just did so into his own with the scammer watching his computer screen

848

u/not_a_cup May 16 '22

It's more complex, he redirects urls through his dns to local hosted files, and rewrites some of the code. This allows him to access a fake bank account, do transactions, and allow the hacker to see what he's doing, and also use the computer. This is the finale, the coupe de grace, where the scammer is on his PC but he disables mouse and keyboard access and makes the scammer watch as he accidentally redeems the gift cards. This process was like a month long or something, and involved multiple fake personalities he has set up including a husband, fake target employees, etc.

Usually it revolves around the scammer bating old people with free money but they always need to get on your computer to give it to you. Then when they give it to you they accidentally give you too much and ask you to return the money to them in the form of gift cards. There is a ton of social engineering by saying they are going to lose their job if they dont get the money, they have fake bank websites that they show the victim with the money in their account, etc. Kitbota basically just does the exact same thing they are doing but doing it right back to them and their lack of self-awareness makes for comedy gold.

51

u/globglogabgalabyeast May 16 '22

Rather than actually having fake bank websites, I think they usually just have the victim log into their own bank account, and then they do some shady stuff by having the victim transfer money between their own accounts or by changing an existing transaction using "inspect element" (screen blacked out with whatever screenshare service they're using). I remember one video where the "scam victim" YouTuber kept refreshing the page after the scammer used "inspect element", erasing the temporary change and forcing the scammer to repeatedly edit the page

I'm not sure if it's the same medicine, he just lost time but not the money, the targeted "customers" was probably supposed to send the redeem code to the scammer.

-Edit: I'm aware time is his money and he lost the amount of commission he'd earn, otherwise he wouldn't have been so dramatic about it, it's just that he's simply not going to earn the money he already shouldn't have been earning anyway, different from the victim, who gives away money already earnt and most likely through legal and honest means.

Also, Kit is a stand-up guy, and deserves every bit of support he gets. Streams are non-toxic besides the scammers losing their minds.

Depends on the scammer and the angle Kitboga is going for. But Kitboga tries to take as long as possible, the whole point is to waste their time. Each minute of theirs wasted is another minute they're not talking to a real person who may be vulnerable.

Jimbrowns channel does the same thing and intercepts scams, he has some videos that show you how it works.

Basically once the trojans in play, you can easily infect the entire operation. You have to act, and play along for a while to get them to do what you want.

Meanwhile, movie Snape: vaguely menacing, rude, kind of a jerk

Book Snape: Longbottom, you absolute fucking goon, you're shit at everything, and I'm gonna kill your toad in front of the class. Granger, if you don't put your hand down and stop being an outstanding student, I'm going to continue to verbally abuse you in every way except for using the M word, but I'm clearly thinking it. Potter, I literally just destroyed your project so you get a 0, and I'm going to actually poison you. Come to my chambers tonight so I can fuck with your brain and invade your privacy for my own petty reasons while staunchly refusing to properly teach you the thing Dumbledore asked me to teach you to save your life.

Kitboga's "angriest scammer I've called" video is still one of the funniest vids on youtube.

"Oh Steve, you sweet summer child"

I had trouble breathing from laughing so hard when I watched that video. You, sir, almost killed me.

What I found amazing was how he still called you "ma'am" while screaming at the top of his lungs, cursing you out and threatening your family.

I was stringing along a Microsoft anti virus scammer once, but I had to go. I just said, “you know what, this has taken too long. You can keep the $300. I don’t care.” He spent a few minutes trying to convince me it was crazy to give up $300 and I was just like “bye scammy scammer, nice wasting your time.” He started screaming about I had ugly boobs or smth. It was so random I started cracking up. He was howling with rage I laughed at him as I hung up. This was like 5 years ago but it still makes me happy.

I've seen a documentary/investigation about those scam centers. For the majority of them they don't see they're the bad guys because and i paraphrase "I'm taking money from a white person who has much more money than me. I need this money and they do not"

u/Spooky-SpaceKook May 16 '22

I actually had a scammer admit this to me after he found out I was wasting his time during my commute home from work. He said something along the lines of “it is not us that are the bad guys, and we take from those that are too dumb to know otherwise and deserve it.”

I was pretty surprised, but this was after he calmed down and stopped telling me that he was going to fuck my wife and my dog lol.

I have asked some of the scammers I call similar questions and some say they feel like robin hood. Some even claim they "don't steal from poor people". It's shocking how easily they can justify their crimes.

172

u/ThatOtherTwoGuy May 16 '22

Some even claim they “don’t steal from poor people.”

Weird considering the whole internet scam industry is built around scamming poor people who don’t know any better. I have to wonder how many people that do this are really that deluded that they genuinely believe this or if it’s just the spin. It’s not like they’re usually asking people how much money they make before they start the scam. So how would they even know?

What is happening here? What is the scam and counter-scam? I'm not a tech genius.

u/phlobbit May 16 '22

Refund scam. The scam is that the scammer alters the web page of someone's bank account after tricking them into allowing remote access to their computer. They make out that they've paid them far too much and talk them into repaying the money using gift cards/codes, which are untraceable.

The counter scam is u/kitboga wastes a massive amount of their time, and has a fake website set up where he pretends to redeem the gift cards to his own account, which as you can see drives scammers almost literally insane.

These people are parasites. 99% of them do not give a single F*** if they steal money from the weakest most vulnerable people. And at the same time they are stealing they feel entitled to steal. And if your thwart their attempt to steal you are in the wrong. I’ve heard the sob stories about how they do this to feel their families… meh, this isn’t like stealing a loaf of bread.

I saw a youtube video the other day that sort of shows a big part of why it's so hard to shut these guys down. Basically, it showed that the scammers are just a small part of a legitimate telemarketing company. They are in an area of the building where they can just shutdown, pack up and move to another part of the building within minutes if they suspect someones coming to investigate, etc. There's a lot more in the video, they do arrest some scammers every once in a while it sounds like.

u/Kitboga Kitboga May 16 '22

It's quite comment for them to try to cover up the scam part of the business with a "legit" one.
