Haren_lucy "American Hope Resources Grant" Scam

hi there, im pretty new to this forum… ive been watching scammer revolts for a bit and when this happened i knew you guys could help me out. i had an instagram account follow me, view my story, and comment “my babe” with a heart on my photos (kinda creepy to me, since im a young woman)… then they dmed me to let me know that they are with the “American Hope Resources Grant” and they were going to send me $3000 for c*vid-19 relief. they wanted my bank info. so naturally, i had to check and make sure there was no way this was ACTUALLY a scam, right?? so i sent them my venmo handle and was like “ill only take money if you send it via venmo”. nope. didnt work. they want my bank info. so i started trolling, as good old scammer revolts has taught me. i figured if i waste their time… its less time that they could be putting towards scamming someone else. eventually, it lead to them getting VERY angry with me and sending me a photo of a smashed phone and saying that i made them so mad that they smashed their phone (lmao), then they said i needed to send them my address because i was “going to regret this” and they were going to “make sure i rot in jail”…

anyway, the handle is @haren_lucy on instagram.
ill attach some screenshots below. (not all, because the convo is kinda long, i will admit i was having a very fun time trolling…)
they should be expecting company. :slight_smile:
