In this CNET News video HOPE organizer Emmanuel Goldstein does a live phone prank on a Starbucks employee offering aid for laid off employees from the fictional "Last HOPE Foundation" during a social engineering panel at Last HOPE. Full Story: http://news.cnet.com/8301-1009_3-9995...
UPDATE: Sorry about the audio quality. Basically he called up a Manhattan Starbucks that is slated for closing and asked a worker for employee names and other information under the guise that they would get $75 from the Last HOPE Foundation because they are victims of downsizing. Despite his smooth talking and official-sounding organization he failed to get any information because the worker was a substitute from another store and didn't know anything. However, there is a lot to learn from his techniques. His asking her if she understands that she won't be eligible for any funds because she is not being laid off is pretty funny.
