Dave Moreland's Bozo Criminal of the Day - The world famous daily report on dumb crimes

July 10, 2008

Bozo criminal for today from Huntsville, Alabama provides us with another example of how bozos and modern technology just don’t mix. Bozo Harvey Pierce came up with what he thought was a great scam. He set up an auto phone dialer to call residents with a recorded message urging them to got to a website where they could update their bank account records. The idea, of course, being that this would be an easy way to gather personal account information from lots of people. And his plan might have worked except for one big glitch. For reasons known only to the bozo mind, he set the dialer up so that the words "This is a scam" appeared on the recipients caller ID. Busted!
