I enjoy them, I take their time up as much as I can so they are not harrassing people who may be more likely to fall for their tricks.

Just had a call 02071939111

"Sir, you have had a car accident in the last 18 months"
I haven't but "Yes"
"When was that sir, last year or this?"
"You tell me?"
"No, I am asking you sir"
"Last year"
"Now, were you in the car when you had the accident?"
"Yes, I was"
line goes quiet and on comes his supervisor "Nathan Scott". With a thick Indian accent.
"Sir, you have an accident in the last 18 months and your address is xxxx. You can get £2,000 from a little known law in the UK"
"Oh, interesting. I am a solicitor. What is the law please?"
"I can tell you now sir, you are not a solicitor"
"How can you tell"
"Because you'd know the law sir"
"Oh, but I am a solicitor, and I know this is a scam"
"You are an old man sir, not a solicitor. I know where you live but you don't know where I live."
"Is it India?"
"I will come to your house. Maybe 2am. Maybe 4am. You didn't even have a car accident sir, you are wasting my time"
"But I did have a car accident. It is in your records"
"No it is not sir, get off the bloody line now you are wasting my time"
"But, I want this £2000. Do you need my bank details?"

:hehe:

I hope he doesn't come around tonight, I haven't got anything in.

I've had a couple of these calls whilst working in an office. I've only embraced the fun I could get out of winding them up and wasting their time on two occasions:

The first one was a computer scam where they were trying to access my PC. I pretended to be an old man with really poor hearing and had them on the phone for about half an hour whilst they explained to me how to share my personal details. I burst out laughing and gave the game away when the guy was getting pissed off with my lack of understanding.

The second one was a lot shorter but equally as funny (to me, anyway - I'm easily amused). I went along with the whole accident thing and then, after about 5 mins of them telling me what I was entitled to and asking me leading questions, I said "are you sure I can get compensation for shitting myself?".

"What do you mean, sir?",

"You asked if I'd had an accident.. I have... I shat myself".

beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.

I was at my parent's when they got a call. My old man said "Oh, not another one". I rushed to answer.

"Sir, do you have a television?"
"Yes I do"
"And what make is it sir?"
"It's an electric one/ or it's a TV." Can't remember which I said
"No sir, the make"
"How can I tell?"
"It's at the bottom of the screen"
"Oh, I got it, mine is at the top of the screen"
"Good sir, now what make is it?"
"I....T.....V.....4"
"No sir, the make. The make"
"ITV 4, it is on the screen, like you said"
"No sir, like Sony, Panasonic, Samsung"
"Ah, I got it"
"Yes sir".... then he spoke slowly because I am clearly an idiot.

"What....is.....you.....tv.....callled?"

"My......TV......is.......called.......Fred"

Then I hung up because my old man was in stitches.

I do this too. Great fun.

“Hello sir we are calling about your car accident”
“Oh great, I’d been wondering when you’d call, what took you so long”
“Sir can you tell me the date of your accident”
“Yes”
“When was it”
“When was what”
“The date of the accident”
“Which one”
“Your car accident that you recently had”
“Oh right, that one. It was yesterday”
“You had an accident yesterday sir”?
“Yes. Well I’m not sure you can call it an accident really”
“What do you mean sir”
“Well I’d had a few hadn’t I”
“Sir I don’t understand”
“I was pissed”
“Do you mean you were drunk sir”
“Drunk isn’t the word pal, I was bloody howling”
“I’m sorry sir we cannot help you”
“But it wasn’t my fault was it”
“I don’t understand”
“Well I was so drunk I can’t remember doing it, so technically it was diminished responsibility”
“Goodbye sir”

I had Microsoft 2 weeks ago. After the spiel about all the warning messages.

"Sir, can you turn on your computer?"
"Yes, which one"
"The Microsoft one innit"
"Yes, but they are all Microsoft, which one has the error"
"They all do"
"So, which one shall I turn on first?"
"Any sir"
"OK, it is on"
"That was quick"
"Well, it was already turned on"
"Can you press Windows and R"
"Do you want me to run Event Viewer?"
"No, sir, windows and R"
"OK"
"Do you have a panel there?"
"Yes"
"Now please type E....V....E.....N......T.......V.....W......R"
"Ah, so you DID want me to run Eventviewer"
"What can you see sir?"
"Wait, lower case, upper case or mixed case?"
Load up Event viewer.
"A lot of errors mate, loads of them"
"And, sir, do you know why you have those errors"
"Yes, they are common errors, they don't mean anything"

He was getting quite shirty, and I reminded him I was a Microsoft customer, and he shouldn't talk to me like this. Then he said I wasn't a customer. I said I was because I bought their stuff, he swore and hung up.

I haven't got passed that stage yet, sometimes my anger gets the better of me and I just call them pricks early into the call.

I got one of those BT call screening phones and it’s one of the best things I’ve ever bought. Used to get these calls every bloody day, but have not had a single one get through since.

I kept this one going for a while the other day until I got bored.
He was pretending to be my Auntie.

How weird. Strange they have gone to the effort of pretending to be your aunty but not have credible English or a plausible story

They picked me randomly out of her FB friends along with a few others I'd suspect.

I hardly speak to her so I knew something was up when I got the message.

Got one today, a bit shorter

"We are from the Amazon Fraud team"
"Oh ok"
"Someone has been using your account to buy things"
"Oh no!"
"Did you share your account with anyone else?"
"No"
"Then we need to help you"
"What were they buying?"
"A smartphone"
"Oh, that would be me, I ordered a Smartphone Wednesday"
"Oh, um, ok, um..... thank-you and goodbye"

Would be funny if I logged on to find it wasn't a scam :hehe:
