    Default "Microsoft" scammers

    I've been plagued this last week by idiots calling me from "Microsoft" to tell me I have a problem with my computer and they're kindly going to fix it for me - three in one hour last week and I've lost count of the total number in the last few days. And they all call from unavailable/hidden numbers so I can't block them. I soon got bored with stringing them along so now I just put the phone down or tell them I have no computer.

    Anyway, there are people who can play them at their own game far better than me - this girl is just too cool for words! Enjoy

    Not fair! Why don't these people ever call me? I want to have a little fun, too!

    That was a good one Joe - so many people string them along that you'd think they would cotton on a bit faster!

    Donna, believe me, you don't want these people calling you - once one calls you it seems your number gets on a list and the calls just proliferate, at all times of the day and evening, it drives you mad - and my number is both ex-directory and permanently withheld. Mind you, I'd like to see what you would do with them if they ever called you ... !!
