A Reddit user who goes by the name "Unfair-Manager-458" shared about their hilarious exchange with the scammer that has left many people in splits.

Scams in today's time have become extremely common. People receive messages on various social media sites from scammers, showing them easy ways to earn money. While a few realize that engaging with a scammer can lead to harm, some people might not be aware of it, and others might just have a conversation with them for fun. Something like this recently happened. A Reddit user who goes by the name "Unfair-Manager-458" shared about their hilarious exchange with the scammer that has left many people in splits.

The conversation begins by scammer giving the Redditor a task. Once the task is completed they give the Redditor 1,500. Just when the scammer thinks that the individual is falling into their trap, they start sending more tasks and promises of sending more money. However, this time, "Unfair-Manager-458" asks for money first for the pending tasks. When they don't receive the money, they start threatening the scammer with black magic.

Another person posted, "I was wondering one thing, like when we get these messages from these illiterate scammers and we know that it's a scam and we have a subreddit set for that, do scammers also realize that now that the person sends black magic or whatever images, they are not going to fall for the scam and do they also have a subreddit where they laugh on our black magic messages?"

"Damn, dude. That was awesome," posted someone else.

A fourth added, "I bet he checked his hair and will be paranoid if he feels a few hairs fall."
