This man's hilarious response to a scammer is perfection

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

A man in England has had his own sweet revenge on a scammer who tried to convince him to send money through a wire transfer so they could start selling gold together.

James Veitch received an email from a man named Solomon who said he wanted to send him gold bullions so they could distribute them and share the profits together – Solomon just needed a little money to get the deal going.

Thankfully, James is a professional comedian and decided to have a little fun with Solomon before he deleted the emails.

Their hilarious exchange has had people in a fit of giggles and given them a few good ideas for how to handle the next scammer that comes at them online or over the phone.
