Thought that I would like to share this with you. Things being quiet and all that.
Recently I have had a daily influx of telephone claims and scam calls. Today was no exception.
About an hour ago I had a telephone call from a number I recognised as a scam number. The person (obviously in a busy call centre) asked for me by name, and told me that he was from somewhere or another, and that I had an account with them. Apparently his companies equipment was registering a large amount of problems being caused by my computer, and he was there to resolve all issues.
He informed me that I must be in front of my computer, but I informed that was impossible, because the computer was over a thousand miles away, because it had been stolen, and we think it was being used by a drug and people's smuggling gang.
He seemed very genuine in offering an apology and condolences. Before putting the phone down, I informed the person that I knew he was on a mission to scam, and wished him farewell in a polite manner.
Wonder if he as taken my details off his list, and I will have no further bother from his company, considering that in the future he might need to be dealing with a drug and people's smuggling gang of possible ill repute.
