This makes no sense at all. If you were Club or WP saying something like this then I would town read you for such nonsense but you aren't either of them.
If scum want to counterclaim someones character they can do so at any time, they don't have to wait for someone to actually claim something of theirs because they don't have to tell the truth as much because they don't have to worry about accidentally misleading a teammate. This explanation of yours reads as a mafioso trying to put themselves into a townie mindset, poorly.
Furthermore if you hypothetically were town and scum saw you claiming their character they would immediately know that even if they were able to lynch you then you would just flip as town, meaning they would know from the start that if they did try to lynch you the best case scenario puts a lot of attention on them early on.
It is your flip-flopping and lack of coherency that is making me start to scum read you right now.
I am aware that you often pull odd gambits as town but this one simply is not clicking for me.
