Man texts alleged scammer entire works of William Shakespeare

Man texts alleged scammer entire works of William Shakespeare

Posted: Updated:

A graphic designer in England who says he got ripped off by an internet user is getting his revenge by sending him thousands of text messages.

Edd Joseph told the Telegraph that he spent £80 ($130) on a Playstation 3 on Gumtree, a British version of Craigslist. After he paid, he didn't receive his item, so he sent something else and kept doing it.

Joseph said he discovered he can just copy and paste the words from the internet into a text message and hit send. From his end, it sends out as one very long message. But on the receiver's end, it is broken into 160 character messages so it came in as several messages.

He's sending all of the works from The Bard meaning when it's all said and done, the receiver will get approximately 29,305 individual messages.

His phone plan is unlimited, meaning that, while he's out his $130, he's at least getting some amusement at making another guy's life misery.
