PostSubject: Having fun   Having fun Icon_minitime1/2/2012, 11:47

Just had one of those phone calls alleging that my computer had a dangerous virus. Usual Indian accent. I replied that I had five computers and which one was affected? He then asked if I had broadband so I told him that I had two providers and wanted to know which one was the cause?

Confusion reigns but he persists. If you turn your computer on we will sort it out for you. Which one I again asked? Give the guy his due, he never lost it. More discussion backwards and forwards. He kept asking me to switch my computer on and I kept saying which one?

After a while I said how do you know my computer(s) is affected, do you know who I am? He then quoted my phone number without the first zero of course as he was phoning from abroad. Not mine I said. It is he insisted 151****** etc. No that's not mine I insisted.

Had him going for about 15 minutes before I got fed up and said look mate, I have a PHD in computer technology (lie) and know for a fact that you are a no good crook who is trying to scam me. Now piss off,

It was great fun.

Teabag, along those same lines there is also one that will phone you at home, tell you your bill hasn't been paid, if you don't pay he will cut you off, will prove he can do it by saying put your phone down then try to ring out (of course all this time he is just keeping your line open, so you don't get a dial tone) he will then ring back and ask for payment bom bom

I got one of the calls the other day (yes we get them here). The area code shows it to be Rochester New York State. It was a woman, who didn't speak German. I'll give her credit she kept trying for a good 5 or 10 minutes.
