All right, first off, to those of you who think its fake because he was ready to record: Have you never called a company and heard the message that says "This call may be recorded for quality assurance" or something along those lines? Its pretty damn common.
As for why they called this guy, he was probably pulled from a list, possibly because he runs a software company and may be moderately wealthy. I was an insurance agent for a short while, and I'd have a huge stack of numbers to call which were gathered through various means. And I probably sounded a lot like that guy, stuttering around because I was nervous and didn`t know what to say when something came up that wasn`t on the script. You heard how many times he said "Just let me suggest one thing... I`m just going to send you something in the mail". He didn`t know what else to say because it wasn`t on the script and he hadn`t yet had experience.

"Christ, I hate scammers as much as the next guy, but getting your jollies from this kind of idiocy is almost as stupid as getting taken by one of them." Yeah, I hate having fun, especially when it's set up. That`s why I never watch TV, movies, plays, listen to the radio, or read a book.
