Scamming the scammers on TikTok
In the modern world of the Internet, it is really easy to get scammed. Fortunately, people are becoming more careful and paying attention to what they buy or agree to.
However, getting scammed is much easier in the US. That’s why a man with a TikTok account started recording how he deals with people who cheat others. YoutuhPastorRyan has 4.9 million followers on TikTok and has been recording this type of content more and more lately, especially since the influencer has a master’s degree in homeland security, so he knows his stuff.
In the first video in the series, the TikToker showed that he received a suspicious email that looked like a scam. The email was supposed to encourage the user to invest money in a certain company. Ryan immediately noticed that something was wrong, and so began his series, in which he began scamming scammers himself to locate their data and report them to the appropriate services.
In the video, we can see that the TikToker is specifically trying to instill confidence in scammers to click on the links he provides. By doing so, he obtained the scammers’ IP addresses and their location. Since he was almost certain that the scammers didn’t speak English, Ryan made a satirical video about the “company” behind the scam, simply talking about all the cursory things about the company – but with a sarcastic tone. Interestingly, it actually worked.
Recently, the TikToker also decided to help a woman who had been scammed out of money after she thought she was buying a dog. In response, Ryan contacted the same dog scammer to express interest in a dog named Milo – the same dog the woman was interested in.
When the scammers demanded money for the dog, the TikToker sent them a fake CashApp link that allowed him to get the scammers’ IP address and location, and find out what platform and device they were using. YoutuhPastorRyan’s videos get several million views each, so you can see that people like them. At the same time, such TikToks perfectly show that there is still a lot of goodness in this world, and it gives hope to people who were once scammed.
