Call from "Microsoft Technical Department"

Postby Durly » Tue Mar 14, 2017 1:24 pm

Working from home today and got one of these scam calls from (supposedly) the Microsoft Technical Department to report a technical fault and urging me to go to my computer to log on and get the problem sorted :lol: So, as it was lunchtime, I thought I'd have a bit of fun. After saying that I was not in fact the owner of the house, I said I would go and fetch the owner. I then proceeded to give him 5 minutes of David Walliams-style "I'm a lady-ness". Told him he sounded nice and that I was having a party later if he would like to come round. He got quite exacerbated (can't think why) and finally lost it after me eventually telling him I didn't have a computer (I did make sure I asked "what's this about?" at least half a dozen times first though). In fact, he ended up telling me I was liar........a big, big, big liar............Bit harsh.

Anyone else had these cretins call up?

nah, sadly I haven't, I do get the odd one or two telling me I was involved in an accident. I try and have a bit of fun, but I get hacked off too quickly and always cut the call short.

Not these but plenty pretending to be Talk Talk, they always get my surname wrong so know it's them.
Depending how busy I am, depends on how long I humour them, the last one everytime he said something, I just said "But you're a liar, aren't you"

Ha Ha :lol:

I use to have fun with these con men, now I tell the majority of them to go jump in the Indian ocean.

Sadly many vulnerable folk are conned by these tw*ts

That's the fella. Andrew Smith, I think he called himself. He did get very agitated towards the end of the conversation, bless him. :lol:
