So a new scambaiter here. Recently, I've gotten a scammer to call me.

I just bought like a $2 sim card and have a spare mobile phone.

The thing I found weird was how eager he was to ring me. Like he rang me after just a few emails back and forth.

And since then, he's probably tried to ring me about like 40-50 times (I've only picked up a few times cause I always have it on silent), but usually it goes to voice mail so I imagine he would have to pay some sort of flagfall fee.

This is like a loan scam and he pretty just wants me to pay my $110 processing fee to process the loan. So yeah, I was just wondering how much does it actually cost to ring an international number from nigeria?

Doing some research on Skype, it looks like to call an Australian mobile, it's 27 cents per minute and 13 cents for flagfall.

I imagine that would be the maximum they would pay. So I was wondering do most scammers generally just use Skype or some sort of VOIP plan to call me? Or are they much more organized and have banded together and got some sort of like unlimited plan where their phone and internet usage is free?

Just wondering what the best way to waste these guy's time and resources without having to put in too much effort myself!

Hello and welcome Smile

They may well be paying that, they usually have some money if not tons of the stuff (I can't see loan lads being big guys really as they are pretty short-run scams). On the other hand they are very good at finding international call plans and international dialling schemes that allow them to call foreign mobiles for pretty reasonable rates. Skype with outgoing cal ID is good for this as well.

Sounds like your lad is well hooked, phone conversations are a great convincer and you will get a long way by letting him call you. Thumbs up

YEah he seems very gullible. I also have a feeling he might have internet on his phone or something cause he always calls me fairly quickly when I tell him that something's gone wrong and i need to speak to him etc. I'm not good at recognizing voices but he sounds like the same person to me.

just wondering is there a way to figure out what he's using etc. by his phone number?

he generally calls me on the same number although a few times it's been different.

they are

+2348140033850 (this is the most common one)
+2348182279451
+2347058445493
