I got one of those fake but real-sounding robocalls where you say hello, you hear some clicking then the bot says, "Hello?

But it says "can you hear me?" and I said "I can." which threw the robot into a loop and it went quiet, reset, click click "Hello? Can you hear me?" "I can." 
click click "Hello? Can you hear me?" "I can."

I don't know that the recorded "yes" actually is a way to get sales, I think it's just a way for the bot to confirm your language and move on to the sales pitch. But it was sort of interesting. They say the bots sound really real, and it sort of did... the first few times.

I've seen more Nigerian scam variants than I care to remember, but this one was pretty amusing.  Yep, I can believe that Ghaddafi wanted to bequeath his ill-gotten millions to help the poor and underprivileged after his death!

 

 Spelling and grammar are noticeably good, until the very end: "he oppose no treat anymore".  Figures that Ghaddafi would oppose treats.  Vote for Pie!!

—————————————————————————————————————————————-

Attn: Friend..........................,

My name is Mr. Kwaena Salim Abdul , I am a very close friend and financial Accountant to late president of Libya Muammar al-Gaddafi, now killed and buried by NTC Fighters. Before the political crisis in Libya that later degenerated to civil war that lead to the death of al-Gaddafi, I helped him to secure and move some funds totaling to the amount of 200 Million Euros to one of the prime banks in Europe.

Because of his present condition, President Muammar al-Gaddafi, wanted me to seek an experience business man and vast in investment and international business who can assist him to handle/invest these funds in any part of the world particularly in the Asian business environment so that the funds will be put in the system to generate profit as he was nursing the idea of helping/assisting the poor, needy and less privileged with the profit that that will realized from this investment little that he knew that his end was near. Although you must have heard from CNN , BBC , AL-JAZEERA that he has been killed, and since his death I have been on the run for my life because the NTC fighters are still looking for anyone related to al-Gaddafi, or his close friends and business associate like me, so Presently I'm seeking Asylum in another friendly Country.

I am looking for an honest person with business status and social integrity and therefore I have the conviction in my spirit that you have the required ability/capacity to handle such funds and also invest it wisely in a very lucrative business for a reasonable future profit/interest. Although Muammar al-Gaddafi categorically mentioned, Hospital, School and Hotel business as areas that he would want the funds to be invested on but other brilliant business ideas from you can also be considered but he is dead and no longer here can we change to any area of business if you desire.

I will rewarded you with 20% of the profit generated from the investment, and once I have finalized and agree with you on modalities, an MOU/ WORKING CONTRACT will be signed between us before the total funds will be moved to your choice account for onward investment as may be agreed. I want you that this transaction is only between both of us as this deposit were done only on the knowledge of me and late President Muammar al-Gaddafi, so he oppose no treat anymore.

Kindly get back to me shortly to let me know your mind.

Kind Regards,

Mr. Kwaena Salim Abdul.
