Once upon a time, getting "scammed" on the internet meant falling prey to a Nigerian prince with promises of large sums of money. 2019 scammers are cutting the whole Nigerian prince bit and straight-up messaging people on Facebook and asking for money.

One scammer reached out to a random Facebook user online to tell them about the "International Monetary Funding Company" and how they are literally giving away $150,000 in cash to anyone who wants it.

The Facebook user instantly knew they were being scammed (was it the extremely on-the-nose-name that gave it away? lol), and trolled the shit out of the scammer.

The scammer explained that in order to get the $150,000, you have to send them $1500 first, which is pretty standard behavior for the "advance-fee scam," which this one seemed to be.
