We’ve all heard of the gift card scam via email. And if you haven’t, maybe you should read this…
The scam happened to me once. I got an email from “my boss” asking me to urgently go to the store and buy a few gift cards for clients. It sounded pretty believable tbh, but luckily, I caught the misspelling of her last name in the email address. Not everyone is that lucky though. There’s actually an insane amount of people who have fallen for the gift card scam. Seriously, look it up. I bet you’ll be shocked.
So, this scammer emails the OP pretending to be her priest (you’ve got to have some kind of bad karma coming your way for that, right?). The OP immediately recognized that it wasn’t her priest because, c’mon, what priest emails you and asks you to go out and buy iTunes gift cards? So, she decided to troll him for a few hours and it’s pretty hilarious. See the full email exchange below.
