Journalist Trolls Scam Artist By Sending Him Jason Bourne’s Passport Details Instead Of His Own


Almost everyone knows that you should never divulge any personal information while online and not in a secure environment, to lower the likelyhood of you getting scammed by some fraudster who’s looking to phish your details. Journalist Josh Billinson had received his fair share of these scam emails over the course of the last few years but decided that the time had finally come for him to do something about it.

Josh is a political journalist and decided that the best way he could get even with the scammer was to troll one of the businessmen that had been in contact with him to try and get these details by sending him Jason Bourne (from The Bourne Identity) instead of his own.

Here’s how the conversation between Josh and Richard Hummels (the scammer) went down:
