‘My New Child’ – Maia Dunphy Shares Hilarious Thread Responding To ‘Hi Mum’ Scam | #whatsapp | #lovescams | #phonescams | #datingscams | #love | #relationships | #scams | #pof | #match.com | #dating

Maïa Dunphy has shared a hilarious thread of her stringing along a scam artist who was pretending to be her child in the infamous ‘hi mum’ scam.

The ‘Hi mum’ scam, a relatively new scam text message that has cropped up, sees the potential scammer target victims by pretending to be their child. They then say that they’re texting off a new phone and are in serious trouble, before asking for money from the unsuspecting victim.

Thankfully, people have become aware of these scams going around — with Maïa, who was one of the latest targets, deciding to continuously change the subject with her ‘new child’.

In a hilarious thread on Twitter, Maïa’s ‘child’ told her that they needed to pay €921 for a new laptop — with Maia telling the scammer that she was out ‘nicking jocks off random washing lines’ and asking if they were coming home for the weekend as ‘Jim brought home that deer he ran over, so we’re going to barbecue it if the weather’s nice.’

Maïa then asked ‘can the nuns not help you?’ and told the scammer to pawn ‘the religious relic I gave you.’ But once the bank details were sent and swiftly deleted, Maïa decided to let them know the jig was up by telling the scammer they were going to put their name as ‘Scammy Hooer’ and report the crime to Gardaí.
