So...story time. I was at work one day and I get a call on the business line. I do the little shpeil where I thank them for calling and asking what I can do to help and for a second there is nothing on the line. I'm about to hang up when I hear from the other side
"Hold on, let me finish" so I casually just hang up the phone. Pervert calls 10 minutes later and the first thing he says is
"I just came" so I slam the phone down. Another 10 minutes and the same guy calls but my store manager picks up and after identifying it as the same guy he jokingly says
"Want me to come over there and help you-" *click.
He hasn't called since.
@Slayer9200, that was me
@Slayer9200, I had a scammer call my store's phone saying that I personally has Visa debt and they were threatening to cancel my card (which they don't do over the phone). So I pretended to act scared and asked if there was anything I can do to stop this, to get me closer to whoever was in charge. They transfered me to a guy with an Indian accent thicker than curry who then proceeded to ask for my name. I told him my name was "Rick Astley" and when he asked for my credit card number I then blasted "Never Gonna Give you up" from my phone onto the landline's speaker. He listened for a good 30 seconds before hanging up. Life is weird sometimes
@Good Guy Satan, Satan is just as diabolical as i imagined.
@Good Guy Satan, ah yes I've had somewhat of a similar experience. I got a scammer to call my home phone. Mind you i was like 10 at the time and i was with my younger brother. We kept getting calls so we decided we were done with their calls. So naturally i lead the whole thing. The guy called and I was playing along, then out of nowhere my brother slammed the door as hard as he could and i began to tell the guy i thought someone was in my house. At first he didn't budge but then i began to act scared that there was a stranger in my house and that i was afraid he was going to tale me away or kill me. Obviously as more time passed by it got more intense and i even began to cry in a low voice. At the end the indian man began to worry. He told me to hurry up and put my parent's credit card number before anything happened and to call the police after i put in the information. Then i began to scream off the top of my lungs and left the phone on for a while to hear what the man had to say.
@arealwerewolf, he ended up continually asking me if i was there and to put in the information. After a while he hung up and we weren't called again
@arealwerewolf, "If you're dead you won't need your credit card, right?"
Had a guy call claiming he was from Microsoft support and he needed me to run several commands on my computer. I played along claiming I was doing everything he wanted. Then I said I could not get my computer to do what he wanted. He said to try again and I told him no. He said I have to or my windows won't work. I said I am not going to because I work for Microsoft support (which I dont ). He couldn't hang up fast enough.
@loose357, had a similar experience were a guy called telling me he was from Microsoft and needed to access my computer or else Microsoft would stop working blablabla, so I interrupted him halfway through and calmly asked if he realised he dialled the number of a police station. Hung up straight away and never got a call again.
