This Dude Trolled The Shit Out Of An Email Scammer And It Was Hilarious

Welcome to how to get rid of email scammers 101.

Meet Vaibhav Vishal, a writer based in Mumbai.

Vishal, like many of us, was recently emailed an offer which pretty much seemed like a scam. He received the first email three months ago with the subject line "Canada Immigration", and promises of a permanent visa and job prospects. Vishal told BuzzFeed that he found all of it interesting.

Vishal decided to reply, and troll the scammer Suman Jha. He worded a long email stating various random things and ended by asking Jha to help him with the correct pronunciation of the word "Quebec".


Vishal continued to email Jha, painting himself in the worst possible way. he literally stated that he was a criminal out on bail, and needed to go to a country with a non-extradition treaty.

Vishal told BuzzFeed that he thought this was it. "I thought he really wouldn't reply after this."


To add to the trollage, Vishal sent a clearly photoshopped college certificate. And not just any certificate – he used PM Narendra Modi's masters degree as a template. (Here's a look at PM Modi's real certificates.)

And Jha, true to his form, accepted the information blindly, and took this relationship to the next level.

Vishal continued to pour it on asking to meet somebody at Jha's office, but that person would have to know sign language as his tongue was stuck to his palate and he could not talk anymore.
