"Someone got my number from idk where… tried to tell me he (husband) was gay," a woman wrote while sharing about her conversation with a scammer.

A woman took to X to share a series of screenshots which show her conversation with an individual who claimed that her husband is gay. In the WhatsApp messages, the scammer tells her he has been with her husband for two years. What is absolutely hilarious is that the interaction happened after the fraudster mistook her surname for her husband’s, which, in reality, is her father’s.

“Weirdest s*** happened. Someone got my number from idk where. Thought my last name was my husband's and tried to tell me he was gay. Being told my 70-year-old, very strict military dad is gay wasn't on my list for 2024. So, I figured I'd humour him,” X user @Salemschild_ wrote. In a follow-up post, she added, “Anyway, idk what kinda scam this is, but that was funny”.
