Mom turns the tables on phone scammer

We all hate calls from scammers.

They send shivers down our spines and make us cringe every time the phone rings.

But after one mom received a voicemail from a phone scammer, she decided to take matters into her own hands to try and stop the harassing phone calls.

Facebook user Dawn Belmonte recently shared a video of her calling back a phone scammer to turn the tables.

In the video, Belmonte is heard talking to the scammer and giving him a bogus story about why she can't give him any money.


She goes into a long story explaining her fake, horrible and unfortunate circumstances to try and sway the scammer to stop asking for money.

According to the post, the scammer told her that she needs to pay $2,500 immediately or she would be arrested.

But what happens at the end of the call will leave you speechless.

After trying to convince Belmonte to give him whatever money she had, he fesses up and tells her the call is a scam.

He even tells her that if she receives any more calls, to not answer them in the future because they're just more scams.

It's official. Dawn Belmonte is our new hero.
