Got a call from 02393...... about my recent RTA which involves the hire car ???
There`s an outstanding amount for the hire car & needs settling ASAP  ???
If I don`t settle today they will put it in the hands of a debt collector  :P
I told her to call my employer 01962 841.... it`s actually the number for Hampshire Police  :y

The biggest probem we face is number spoofing, in the worst cases of fraud; ppl are cruely tricked into loosing large sums of money because the number calling is recognised as their bank etc  >:(

I never answer calls on my mobile from numbers not known from the contacts list-if it's important they can send a text message instead.Always let the house phone ring to the answering machine then I can listen to any message they leave on that-if indeed they leave a message.

I go the other way, I try and keep them on the phone for as long as possible. I've even sat there telling them what I am doing with my computer for over 30 minutes, my computer wasn't even on. I play stupid and drag everything out for as long as possible.

Why? Well they could be ringing a relative of mine, a friend etc; The longer I can waste their time, the less time they have to harass people who will fall for this.
   years ago an East Yorks window company would plague you trying to sell double glazing . in the end i made an evening appointment for a rep to come, they   stopped calling my number when they found out it was a no sale
 

Let me guess ...................  East Yorkshire Double Glazing ??
