Scammer Calls Otto Some Bad Names

Otto got a call from a debt consolidation scammer that prefaced the call with a female auto attendant. When the live rep came on, Otto said that he wanted to talk to the lady he had been talking to. The rep ignored him. Otto then tried to make sure that the rep was wearing a mask so that he wouldn't catch Coronavirus over the phone. Again, the rep ignored Otto.

Otto explained that he had a high balance on his credit card because he had purchased a lot of Beanie Babies. The rep again ignored Otto and tried to steer him back on track towards providing his credit card details. Otto dripped out a few details about his credit card, just the issuer and an expiration date. But, when Otto was asked to provide the actual card number, he instead gave the customer service number.

Surprisingly, instead of realizing that he was being had, the rep was pretty persistent in trying to get Otto to read him the correct number. After several minutes of back-and-forth, the rep finally called Otto some bad names and hung up.
