Phonecalls from dishonest scumbags, purporting to be from Microsoft


thumbscrew

Likes # 0

I'm sure that many of you will, like me be answering their phones, to discover a hesitant, monosyllabic, deeply suspicious person with an-often impenetrable-Indian accent,lying through their devious teeth by telling you they are from Microsoft.Now we all know that this is a pathetically obvious and useless scam,but speaking as someone who receives daily calls (I'm on my third today),has anyone realised how much fun you can have with these crooked morons? Polite reasoning and requests for them to remove your number from their lists doesn't work, so I confuse, baffle and wind them up until they are reduced to utter helplessness. There's so much fun you can have with these creeps that I actually look forward to their calls, my heart leaps when my phone rings and I get disappointed and almost depressed if I don't get my fix....no calls...that's a bad day!I'm particularly proud of my third call today, as I told the goon I practised Black Magic and then put a curse on him, using the "Nowonmai" phrase from "The Exorcist". The sucker before him, found me suddenly speaking in unintelligible gibberish, rather like the Bill and Ben characters ("Ooooh Flobberlop"), from The Flowerpot Men. Gotta run...my phone's ringing!
