Don’t mess with Texas, apparently.

A Texas man went after an alleged phone “scammer” via Craigslist and filmed the whole thing. The uploader, who used the name GTX GUNS, wrote that the incident went down in 2013 and he just posted the video this month. 

“I purchased an iPhone for my wife on craigslist for $560 the day before this video was taken,” GTX Guns said. “My friend was sent to meet him in a parking lot, upon inserting her SIM card that evening, AT&T shut our entire phone plan down. Apparently the iPhone he sold me was stolen and that’s all AT&T would tell us.”

The user arranged another meeting with the man, saying he wanted an iPhone for himself.

“You said your name was Zeke?” he said. “We’ve got two options, Zeke.”

Then he stated to the man: “So here’s our choices today: I either want my $560 or I want this phone.”

“And if this one is reported stolen, he filmed you pulling up,” he added. “He’s got you on camera now, he’s got this car and I will find you.

“So those are the options. Which one do you want to go with?”

The alleged “scammer” then said: “I really didn’t mean to do that.”

He handed the money back.
