    Fake 'Microsoft' callers


    Hey guys
    People in my area are constantly bothered by these guys constantly phoning from 'Microsoft' saying their computers are at risk etc etc.
    The amount of people that have come into the shop I work in and complain about it is unreal - not to mention the people that have actually payed for the service....
    We get these calls at my house all the time and I think "Microsoft" are starting to get tired of being rick rolled...

    Since these guys don't seem to care about being threatened by police or anything - anyone got any creative ideas to waste their time? Turns out on my days off it's a decent form of entertainment :P

    I usually get one or two a day but I'd had two by 11am today.

    This is the way I normally deal with them (see attached wav).

    I've heard lots of funny ways of dealing with these callers but yours is by far the best! Keep it up.

    It always amazes me how they can just keep going at the script no matter what you throw at them, attached are two of todays unsolicited calls one of which is pretty much along the same lines as the first one I posted.

    Oh John I've got tears running down my face after listening to those clips, brilliant. I don't know how they managed to still try to carry on after the first few minutes.

    That's hilarious, especially calling the computer savvy! Sounds like fun! Thank our lucky stars for being able to register our phone numbers here in the U.S. so we don't have to listen to those morons!
