They left a number. Mighty kind of them. 516 303 8289 What's the odds they speak American? I wonder because they used a robotic woman to do the talking.

I should call back with a thick Japo accent and maybe a little slow [:D]. Haa woo? I callring back [:D]. Be odd if they had a fluent Japo speaker there to out me.

    They called me at work and said they were coming after me. All I gave was the company Info when I answered never did say my name.

    The phone numbers displayed are usually "mirrored" and do not originate from that number. The predominant fraud calls are now from Jamaica. When I receive a bogus call I become the most racist, bigoted, evil, mean, confrontational person the caller has or will ever contend with. I really have fun doing it and actually startled my wife one time when she walked in on a call in progress. [:D][}:)][:p]


    I am nice and say not interested, if they insist on continueing that is when I get like you, I allways ask how big are your boobs, then tell them my wife won't let me talk to women with big boobs, she has walked in on/heard that conversation so many times now she just shakes her head and sighs when I answer the phone......[:D]

    They called me and said they were sending the cops also. I told them to wait about 20 minutes so I could go and pick up a dozen donuts and some coffee. Never heard another thing,

    I like to ask the females what color panties they are wearing, the men, I start lisping and asking them for a date. [:X] Usually ends the call pretty quick. [}:)]

    Tell them there's no need to get the police involved. let them know that they can just send YOU a money order for what they owe YOU, and you'll forget all about it.

    When they say "no, you owe us money". Just say "no, I just finished my audit with you guys yesterday and we've come to the conclusion that I've been overpaying my taxes for years, and you guys owe me $10, 000. Please send me a money order at your earliest convenience"

    I usually ask if they have any idea which of their mother's customers was their father. If that doesn't get them off the phone I continue to insult their wife, sister, daughter, grandmother & so forth. Makes my wife mad if she overhears me.

    If you don't recognize the number, answer with, "FBI. Agent Harris. This call is being recorded."
    I may be a bit crazy - but I didn't drive myself.

    One that called me said he was with the company that made my Windows program. Hmmm, you don't even know what company you work for? So I said, "No you are just another scammer." He laughed, said, "you are right" and hung up. No real need to be rude.

    Had a conversation with one of those idiots once.

    Told him if he could just give me a few days I would have more then enough to pay my debt as soon as the money I was promised from a Nigerian Prince comes in. There wa a long pause, and click...[^]

    Got the IRS scam recording call, no live person just the recording. Claims I will be arrested today by the local police if I don't call and send the money I owe.

    These recordings are actually a better business model for the scammers as it eliminates anyone with an IQ higher than 50 and saves time bickering with people who will never send them a dime.
    This way when someone calls back even if its one in a thousand, it is a potential victim.

    Never call from your phone never send an email or reply to any request for unsubscribe or any reason at all.

    Unless you get a live person to play around with never make contact yourself
