Phone Scams

I personally hate phone pranks on the radio. They're usually mean-spirited or gross or funny only to the person doing them, the victim's response is rarely funny in itself. But I like the phone scams they do on 104.7, because they let the victim know it was a scam in the end, and they usually aren't mean-spirited or hurt the victim.

Fortunately for those who can't listen to them at 7 o'clock in the morning, a bunch of them are online at Kid and Ruben's website. My current favorite is one where they pretend to be holding a guy's wallet hostage. The altered voice was a nice touch.

I agree, those phone scams are a notch above. You've hit the nail on the head since at the end you get to hear the victim laugh about it too. It kind of says, "Everyone thinks this is funny."
That ones a good one all right.
