Trying to up the narrative.

I'm listening to a "This American Life" about people who receive scam e-mails, pretend they're a church and decide to scam the person back. Sending e-mails back and forth, making them go to different places in Chad, Africa. Toying with the scam artists, making fake promises about giving them $200,000. To try and find out what is true and what is false, Ira Glass investigated and tried to contact the scam artist being scammed. The type of people that try to steal from a church will say anything to get their money is the argument these people have and they're "pure scum" one of the reverse scammers said. It's program #363 and amazing.

Should probably go to sleep.
