I went along with it for 5 minutes or so until she asked me what was on the screen.. I said the message on the screen said - 'this is a scam'.
She got angry and said 'you are a very silly woman' and hung up !!

They should. I'm actually getting more annoyed with the threads than the phone calls!

every time someone posts a new thread they seem to think that no-one else has heard of this before - where the hell do these people LIVE ? It's been on the news (tv/papers/internet) for MONTHS.........

Actually I heard about it over a year ago or 2 ago but I still agree we need a sticky.

Had one tonight. He wanted $300 put into his Indian Western Union account, 0800 number does not belong to Western Union. As I rung them then rung the number and its a random number.
But I got their "so called" Sydney number that he wanted me to ring back once I'd deposited the funds to unfreeze my computer.

Have laid a complaint with Orb Netsafe. So hopefully they can get everything shut down (until they start all over again)

If you do not like this thread and others than stay away from these threads.
I think it is more of an awareness thatthe more these threads are posted the more people take notice of these scams

^ well keep it to one thread and read the news

Is that so??? How come that it was only posted in the Herald yesterday morning , besides having received since March every night a phone call, I was getting so annoyed that I reported the calls to Vodafone, who never heard of this scam either.
