    So I'm not sure if this is even the right spot to post this but it has everything to do with scorpions so I hope so, forgive me if I'm wrong. So here goes the story. I have a wanted add out on Craigslist for wanting scorpions. I just want to see what people have for sale and maybe pick up a good deal as I'm broke but yet want to expand my collection. Well today I was contacted by an out of state number and right off the bat I knew it was a scam. So I had to play into it a little and see if I could possibly get a free scorpion out of them. Hope you all enjoy and get a laugh out of it.

    Bet they get big as dinner plates and eat yorkies too. That's why they're scared! They don't want them eating the dog.

    Wow id definitely pay $190-200 + transfer fees for the black with red arizona barks that eat lizards. Id walk them around the block on a leash or .....ride them around the block !

    unfortunately yes it was a real conversation that I had.
    yes it is the number but I'm sure it's an automated number the scammers use.

    Out of state, more like out of country, his spelling is atrocious and don't make me talk about grammar and permit me to say an improper use of words but that is just retarded. Oh gosh my grammar is also bad but at least people can still actually read it.

    First thing I noticed was your dying battery.

    Hopefully the scammer did not acquire your actual Phone Number.
