Jamaica is known to have a thriving scamming community that the law enforcement agencies of the country are trying to crack down on. People have been warned to be vigilant in order to avoid being caught up with and scammed by one of these individuals.
A video is circulating the internet of an attempt by a scammer, referred to as “John”, trying to take advantage of a person, Daniel, who is wearing the military outfit of a soldier. Based on the direction and outcome of the call, John was initially unaware of who he had on the line.
According to the video exchange, Daniel knew who he was dealing with and was stringing the scammer along. The alleged soldier stated at the beginning of the video that he had lost all his contact info and would need a number to call for whatever “transaction” was taking place.
After making sure Daniel was still on the line, John provided him with a number and coached him on what to do, which was to call the number and keep him on the line at all times. He even mentioned that the current call would be paid for so there was no need to worry.
“The call is gonna be…the call will be paid for alright, just keep the line open and have it done,” he said, using an American accent.
At this point, Daniel decided to make it known that he knew that the call was a scam attempt and this led to both men threatening each other with the use of guns. The name Valerie Robinson was also mentioned and the soldier told the man on the line that, “a target dat…you should a never gimi har name.”
It’s unclear when the call was made.
