Got an email supposedly from IRD today saying I had a $1487 refund owing to me. *sigh* If only it was true.

If only people out smarted them, if people didn't get sucked in there would be no scams.

my girlfriends number is very similar to mine, only about another 4000 numbers up from mine if you go in order.I had the scammers call last night so I can only assume she will get a call very shortly when they work their way up.

I had an indian girl phone me about a week ago claiming to be with Microsoft. I talked to her for about 20 minutes pretending I knew nothing of computers and having her explain every step in details.

I got bored after a while so told her I was an IT technician.
Amazing how fast the phone went dead.

Got several 'goodbye' calls yesterday.. I'm expecting another IT scam call real soon. I'd better check that my VM and call recording setup is still ready for them.

My caller id said the number was something like +64501, so i thought yep they will call again and they did, he started the blurb and i said i have a 3 week old laptop, he said i must have the wrong info, i said yep you have and hung up. I wasnt fast enough to think of a better reply.

They phoned again tonight and offered to repair for $165. (Holiday discount?).

Total time wasted: 18 minutes.

drcspy, Jun 6, 4:02pm

We had some fun , I used the old Win98 box, had not been turned on for some time, took ages to boot. He said my HDD was stuffed and I needed more RAM (it already has 512Mb) . When it had booted, he asked me to go to a website (PC not on network) I said, oh, I'm on dial up .. So the conversation turned to "get a cellphone" , I said "I can't my credit card is maxed out" .. that is when he said "not even $165 to fix your computer?" :)

The best call so far, and one I could have done at the Mac since he didn't do the "event check" first, just straight to the website.

Had your call yet little_egypt?

banty, Jun 8, 4:22am
They've been calling constantly for the lastfew days I've hung up on them a few times as it was obvoudly them becasue of the lag. Caller ID says 501. Finally answered again this afternoon and told them to piss off!!!! Bastards!

johnf_456, Jun 8, 4:23am
I wish someone would transfer them to me, I want to play some more with them.

little_egypt, Jun 8, 5:19am
Still waiting. I'm out a hell of a lot at the moment but I'm not even seeing that many missed calls on the caller id. They just don't call me any more.

galex, Jun 8, 12:44pm
