[Scamming a Scammer] How to scam $159 from a scammer. I scammed a Scammer. I was contacted by an obvious scammer the other day. They asked for $160 and I went along with it. I got their Cashapp and sent them 1 dollar instead of $160 lulling them into a false belief that they are smart and I am dumb. They were all like “Iolol wrong amount but I got the dollar you sent, you can send me $159 and it will still be fine” So I typed in $159 on Cashapp then pressed “Request” instead of “Send” Pretty sure they didn’t read it. They definitely just clicked “accept” instead of “decline” and I proceeded to block the lowlife scammer, $159 richer.

Why do fans keep throwing things at artists during live shows? From Bebe Rexha to Cardi B, the list of victims of this strange trend is growing. So why are fans behaving in this way when seeing stars live on stage? Link
