If a sensible man offers you $13.9 million in exchange for opening a bank account, you’d do it right? What if the money was from a client who’d recently passed and listed no next of kin … still interested?
Comedian James Veitch received this very legitimate offer via email and decided to act on it. Not only does Veitch convince the scammer he has flown to Hong Kong, where the apparent bank staffer is located, but he also asks all the tough questions: Are there Kit Kats in Hong Kong? Should he grow a mustache? Can he bring his three small dogs?
Watch as the email scammer loses it the more Veitch eggs him on about flying to Hong Kong to make the exchange IRL.
For two years, Veitch continued to engage with the slickest of scammers and the result was some hilarious verbal jousting. Mashable‘s original series Scamalot continues to bring some of these conversations to life in the second season of the series.
