Nigerian scammer tries to con man, but ends up being pranked

A man was having a boring day until a Nigerian scammer tried (very poorly) to trick him out of some money.

From the looks of the opening lines, the scammer appears to have tried to contact him before.

In the texts, the scammer asks the man to loan him $700 ($936), after the man, Jason, claims to have received $2,000 for an investment.

The scammer constantly urges him to transfer the money quickly, but Jason keeps making excuses to lengthen the process.

In the end, the would-be victim ends up having an afternoon of fun at the scammer's expense instead.

See the gallery below to find out how the supposed victim reacted when he received texts from the scammer.
