Since I got Skype-enabled a while back and got into phone calls to Lads, I learned first-hand some of the things that phone Lads are famous for.

[1] "Hello? Hello?"
That makes me peeved right from the start when all attempts to give your name are interrupted by "Hello?" over and over again.

[2] "Listen..."
We've joked about the "Listen, listen, listen..." - so far the personal record is nine.
There's also, "Listen to me and listen good". You hear this from Lads who don't like your questions.

[3] "Send me email".
Not all of them like to talk at length; they'd rather stick to the anonymity of emails.

Any other things that you expect when you call?

I will heed the advice of a polite horse for it is written that more flies are caught with honey than vinegar... although assault carbines and monstrous wolves are still fun.

I got one that just repeated "Send the money! Send the money!" over and over. I put him on speaker and left him to ramble on for five minutes.

I remember a phone call posted some time ago when the lad said "Listen to me carefully" again and again, and I was reminded of "Allo - allo".

All of NoToBeScammed's radio shows would call up lads, and the calls were 75% those very three phrases Smile

One fun game was calling up a few lads at once, and letting them conference call one another... lots of hello, hello, hello? Then What is your name?, Send me an email, ok?? etc. All good fun.

Unfortunately it seems that the site that used to let you send rickroll calls is now offline. Shame.

@Yastreb. As someone who enjoys taking lad calls, I make the best of every situation.

1) The Hello Lanuage. They may spend the first minute repeating "hello" over and over again. Why stress? Assuming you've gotten them to call you, it's them that are burning their credits with their idiocy. Remember something, folks, and that is that international phone calls are very expensive from Africa. Let your lads say "hello" as much as they please.

2) Listen listen listen. Mimicking the dealer isn't much of a strategy if you're an up-and-coming hustler, but it can work surprisingly well on lads. They get close to you. They can relate. I make a point of starting every insult with, "listen... now listen to me, ok..."

3) This one is annoying. No going around it. I usually retaliate by telling them over e-mail or IM that I wish to never hear from them again. I then ignore them for a long time. Things fall back into place in time, with an added dose of obedience from the dear scammer.

I let them call me via a very expensive tel no, which diverts to my home tel no. I have a cordless headset, so let them talk away whilst I’m ironing, decorating, doing DIY, weeding my Inbox, etc.

A very common phrase is, “Have you sent the payment?” Of course, I always have, but – for some reason – the monies never seem to be available for collection at the other end.

"Listen to me" must be the first thing they learn in lad school. Along with "how is your family".

I like to call when it gets to the money stage and say "hello here is the MTC" hang up. Let them call back and start slowely reading the numbers. Ask them to repeat it back then say no thats not right and give them a new set of numbers ond so on. You can almost feel their blood pressure rising through the phone.

^^I love giving telling the lad to get a pencil and write down the MTCN. Then to to read it back like you said. And I keep changing a digit there and there. It's fantastic

So far as what I get a lot of so far as phone calls: They call me "brother" a lot. They always ask about the family. "God Bless" alot, etc.

They definitely complain because my number shows up as "unknown."

I've had a few lads who call my k7 number, but don't actually say anything when they reach the inbox.

I always used to give them a guaranteed useless number (normally a fake or a k7 number), then tell them I'd actually talked to them and given the payment details over the phone- always great fun.

do you think that you are dealing with an ungry person here?

u got 12 hours to send the money remember no game u fuck face

If you like you can send $1 Billion to any person. But I want to tell you that I did not get even $1 from you.

That's very common. I'm always "surprised" to hear that. But I also make calls from my baiter mobile phones so they can see my number.

I have a lad who speaks quite normally until he has to lie about money (we are engaged so we don't discuss only money). Then he starts stammering very badly. I'd say his career choice wasn't the best possible. Rolling Eyes Laughing

Many lads speak all too fast but when they call me, I let them speak. Then I ask them to repeat because I couldn't understand a word. Very Happy
