These fake artist accounts are pretty out of control.
These days, most folks seem to be pretty aware scam artists, they look for the blue check, and they report the account, but a few years back, that wasn’t the case.
I had an encounter with one of these scumbags a few years ago, and lucky for me (and unlucky for him), I just so happen to know a thing or two about George Strait. Also, lucky for me (and unlucky for him), I had a pretty good buzz going and was looking to have a little fun with it.
Here’s how it all went down…
Our imposter here, Georgestrait19 (clever), was looking to deliver a briefcase full of $30 million dollars and some valuable documents, you know… real Jason Bourne-type shit.
But apparently, he needed a hand with the $300 delivery fee to ship said briefcase. All this money and important documents and somehow, he got hung up on $300 bucks…
Anyways, me being well aware of the type of scams these clowns try and pull off, I decided to tangle with the fake King of Country Music himself, responding only in George Strait song titles. 32 different song titles to be exact.
Here’s our entire conversation:
“Dear friend” eh? I kinda feel like ol’ George might start a conversation that way.
Some flattering small talk, you know… just to get him warmed up.
