This Guy Has A Clever Way To "Trick" People Into Sending Pictures Of Their Pets

There are a lot of scams floating around the internet. Hardly a day goes by without an article about a little old man who accidentally lost his life savings to someone on the internet, or someone posts screenshots of their ridiculous conversations with someone trying to get them to purchase gift-cards. People regularly get texts and calls from scammers trying to tell them they've won a thousand pounds--despite living in the United States.

But this guy is turning the tide on scammers, and proving that sometimes ruses on the internet can be used for good. Like many scammers, this guy targeted a vulnerable community; cat lovers who believe that their cat is the best of them all.

The "scam" begins with an incendiary Tweet: "My cat is cuter than yours. Fight me"

Followed by a picture of a VERY cute cat.

And, as OP, "Donut Operator" knew they would; cat lovers retaliated!

All trying to show that their cat is cuter than OP's
