I've finally joined the club! I had a phone call just before. "Hello sir, this is the Windows IT Team. I'm calling about your Windows computer."

 

F___ off!

 

That is the first time I've ever had them ring.

He scams the scammers by calling them from a virtual machine and wastes their time. Its hilarious.

Hi have been getting calls from a UK number saying I applied to work from home, they had my name so I think it was one of those stupid supermarket surveys as that is pretty much all I have filled out.

 

I asked why the hell they were calling from a UK number, what the hell they wanted and to take me off their call list.

 

 

 

The lady at the other end asked why I didn't want to make money from home, I told her because this was clearly a scam of some sort, she hung up and I haven't had a call since.

 

I did manage to waste 5 min of her time however.





I know a little more than nothing but not much...
