Eva888: The background sounded like a very busy call centre with lots of voices. Makes you think what a huge operation it probably is and how many innocents get scammed.

 

In Nigeria, when a scammer gets rich enough, he sets up a house with fibre and WiFi invites all his friends to join him, in return for a cut of the proceeds. When any of them get a hit, he plays the "lawyer" or "detective" or "supervisor" or whatever the script calls for.

Eva888: Just had a call from Spark that my Internet was being cut off. Interesting since I’m with Vodafone. International people were accessing it from overseas!

Ahh well...I gave her the dumb answers she needed while she guided me to the computer told me to sit in front of it and told me to press the third key from the left, windows key and R and what did I see. Nothing, I said. The frustration was rising, she kept telling me I’d lose my internet in an hour and it was urgent. I said I wouldn’t mind because I don’t use it too much and it’s my imaginary son's computer. Her voice was rising as she tried to get me to push the keys and tell her what I saw. Finally, I told her Nah, too complicated and I’d wait for my son to fix everything.

Rude cow hung up in my ear.



 

Spoke to her the other day. She's a terrible advertisement for The Spark.

Another malapropic idiom for the list.

I was told "you've got that down pack." yesterday.

That would be pat, not pack.....

Called FMG at 1000. The recording told me there was a 3 minute wait. At 1003, I was speaking to a human.

Nice work, FMG.
