Mmmm joy.


I have not received any scam calls for years now. But this morning a very lovely male voice informed that I won $200,000 from Vodafone NZ by random selection and my lucky number is 8997401002. I was quickly transferred to Jack Wilson (GM of Vodafone NZ) who confirms my luck number and congratulated me again on winning $200,000 from Vodafone NZ.


He quickly wanted to know where I am from, my name and other details, however, when I asked they should have all details already - hung up on me :( rude!


I would like to express my frustration, and personally complain about Mr Wilson (GM of Vodafone NZ) rude hung-up on me.


I WANT MY $200,000 NOW!

LOL.....  you'd think they'd at least research names etc.


I'd have asked them to apply it as credit to the number they've called.

I thought they were meant to be getting more clever not dumber


Who is going to give $200,000 to a random customer. They should have said $100 or something to make it more believable!
