A Caucasian man has taken to social media to reveal how he scammed people who tried to scam him.
The young guy narrated how he was able to make more than $20,000 from defrauding a bunch of internet fraudsters.
According to the techie, he located the scammers through their investment videos online where they released WhatsApp numbers for unsuspecting victims.
He then contacted them and showed interest in making an investment of 20 thousand dollars and asked each of them how much returns they can guarantee.
Excited by the thought of getting such amount from him, some of the cyber scammers promise paying him $140k by the end of the week.
The software engineer then created a fake version of CashApp and recorded a video of himself acting like he is sending $10,000.
However, he programmed it in such a way that made it to look like CashApp is withholding the money because of how large the sum is.
It then requests them to send him $50 to unlock the account so that they can access the 10k they thought he sent to them.
He shared screenshots of his account statement showing how the unsuspecting scammers sent him amounts ranging from 50 dollars to 75 dollars, not knowing that they are being scammed.

In related news, a software engineer identified as Paula Paul has revealed that she taught a friend tech skills who then used the knowledge against her after learning.
The lady said she introduced the friend to decentralised finance also known as (DeFi) and she made her first million from the field.
Paula said that at a time her pal was cashing out big, her own account was hacked and emptied by an unknown person.
She visited the friend to lament about how everything she worked hard to earn through the years was wiped clean.
In a dramatic twist of events, she later discovered that it was the same bestie who hacked her account.
The techie revealed that he was eventually able to recover 90 percent of the funds back as she had already spent out of the money.
Paula tweeted; ”I taught a very close friend Defi and she made her first millions from it, taught her jobs and she made more money from it, I was later hacked and all my funds was drained, I went to her, cried to her and explained how I worked so hard for it, I later found out she was the thief.”
