If you want a good laugh, check out these videos, especially if you've dealt with a scammer before. The guy pretends he's a clueless, little old lady and what he does to these scammers is absolutely hilarious. You'll die laughing as the scammer gets frustrated with this "little old lady." I recommend you have someone nearby just in case you pass out due to excessive laughter. [emoticon]

Go to YouTube and search for "kitboga". I try munching on a snack while watching, but begin to choke because I can't stop laughing. You've been warned! [emoticon]

Problem with 'interacting' is you have proved that number is valid....scammers then share that number with others especially if irritated which means many, many more scam calls

Best to NOT answer ANY number not known to you

'He thinks he is being cute' ---- I think waste of time
Whatever.......

No, that's not what the YouTuber does. The scammers are pretending to be Computer "Tech Support" folks. Lots of them use AnyDesk, UltraViewer or similar software to "help" with the problem. These programs allow them to remotely access your computer. Once they have access to your computer, they can do whatever they want.

The YouTuber turns this around and while they are trying to do whatever they are trying to do, he deletes their data using the very software they had him install. I've only watched a couple, but it is funny to watch as the Scammers realize something isn't right. Some of them beg for their data back. It really is funny to watch. I am not familiar with Kitboga, but there are several out there that do the same thing.

Yes, there are other You Tubers who do the same thing as kitboga. I watched some of the others, but found kitboga the funniest, especially in those skits where he wears a wig and looks and sounds like an old lady. The others, while still humorous, aren't as hilarious.

Also don't forget that many of these You Tubers have monetized their channels so they are literally getting paid to do this to the scammers. They are funny to watch as well.
