One of the more annoying aspects of the internet is the amount of scammers who can be found lurking and ready to pounce.

Of course, most web savvy people just ignore the dubious pleas for social security numbers and bank details.

However, what if you decided to strike up a conversation instead? Becoming a nuisance to the nuisance?

This is exactly the decision made by hilarious Apprentice Nursing Assistant, Tom Sheerin, resulting in hilarious results…

Sliding into his DMs like a stranger’s hand in your back pocket, ‘Michael’ claimed to have been sent by ‘the CEO of Facebook’ himself to deliver some truly glad tidings.

Tom was apparently the lucky duck benefactor of a cool $1 million, plus his very own jeep. Geez, thanks Zuckerberg!

All Tom had to do was hand over $500 in delivery fees to this complete stranger who had approached him via Facebook messenger. A sound business transaction if ever there was one.

Michael was even professional enough to send over a picture of a box full of money and an assurance letter from none other than Mark Zuckerberg.

This assurance letter is maybe one of my favourite ever scam letters containing totally no-suspish gems such as ‘all I want you to understand, is that this Facebook lottery is fully real and legitimate’ and ‘I want you to rest assured this is the right office.’

It was at this point, Tom began his trolling, innocently enquiring whether the money would be sent to him in a cardboard box.

Michael made the following reassuring reply, complete with a little cardboard box emoji:

Yes you winnings will be delivery to you by the FedEx delivery company ok.

It will be delivered to you at your doorstep.

Tom told UNILAD:

I’ve had messages like this in the past and I always try to mess about with them but they usually realise pretty quick, this man must be working on commission because he really didn’t want to give up.

The response has been amazing, I only posted it so as I thought a friend might appreciate it but before I knew it it was getting shared around the world, now seen it on websites from Russia, the Ukraine and the US, can’t believe how positive the response has been.
