“Single Mum” tries to scam person she bought couch from with fag bugs, backfires beautifully
Bloody scammers are a strange breed of human. Deadset, while these cheeky buggers have the poor intention of ripping people off – often for quite large sums of cash – they frequently find themselves as comic foils in bizarre exchanges with their targets. Usually, their failed attempts are a result of their own stupidity. Take the ‘single mum’ in this scam attempt today for example. Her attempts to weasel some cash are pretty bloody tragic.

Rightio, while we’re not exactly sure where and when this one took place, it’s a pretty universal effort and could be from anywhere. What you’ll notice straight up is that someone’s just sold a couch when they receive a pretty blunt message from the buyer.
“I am going to give you one chance to make this right,” is how they start. Now, we dunno about you, but that doesn’t have a lot of context. As you can imagine, the vendor was like, “What’s wrong?” Seriously, we’d be baffled too.
Anyway, the purchaser, who’s made it patently clear she’s a single mum and is therefore owed plenty by the world and everyone around her, is like, “F**ken bedbugs. I almost took it home, and did I mention that I am a single mum?”
Now, the obvious response from the seller is the one she gives: “Well, show us some pictures. Bloody prove it.” And that’s where things take an interesting turn.
The scammer, who may or may not be a single mum, is like, “Orright then. Stick these in your pipe and smoke ‘em.” The more quick-witted among you may have noticed those pictures seem a bit off. Naturally, the vendor is like, “Yeah, bulls**t…”
We’ll let you suss out how it develops from there, but by this stage, you almost feel sorry for the scammer. Almost.
Final thought: As always, you’ve gotta take these exchanges with a pinch of salt, and something does feel a little off about this one, but if it is real, this bloody scammer’s not even trying. There’s probably a lesson here, though. If you are gonna try to scam someone, at least put in some effort. Seriously.
