  • OT: Running Out of Ideas

    So, I've been getting these calls, once every three or four days this month, from these guys claiming to work for some sort of "Windows" computer security system. East coast area codes but heavy accents - probably from India, though I'm not an expert.

    Basically, they want me to visit their website and then download a virus so that I can pay them several hundred dollars to remove it. Different versions of this scam have been going on since at least 2006.

    So far, I've hung up on them. Told them to quit calling me and hung up on them. Called them names, hung up on them and reported them to the FTC. Told them I was too busy getting a blowjob from Mowgli and to leave me alone and then hung up on them. Told them I had a pizza guy at the door and to hold on for just a minute, then set down the phone and took the dog for a walk.

    Running out of ideas, here, guys.

              Or maybe really bad English. That's an idea.

                I assumed you were already doing that naturally.

                      Keep saying "I don't understand that can you explain it again" over and over again. Put your phone on speaker and go about your business when you hear a lull ask again for clarification

                        Refer them to the guys in Nigeria. Maybe you can create an endless scam loop?

                            I was getting these for a while... same deal, yelled at 'em, reported their number to the FTC, etc. The best was one day my wife got on the phone and started talking all dirty about downloading porn, it was awesome, THEY hung up on her.
