Show me the post in which I actually did that, and we'll discuss it further. Otherwise I'll expect an apology.
Well done, Peter, you've won another argument by your shrewdness and backup. But don't hold your breath you'll get no apology from me. You can't remember? Come on, do me a favour. I assume your memory is a selective one. Please don't insult my intelligence and give the excuse you can't recall that many posts. And I know your tactics of old so I'll pre-empt you on calling me paranoid as well. As you well know you've deleted that thread and all the posts by that member. Not only that but you have no proper search facility. Very clever. That's why you win so many arguments; editorial over-control. That sounds like vulnerability to me. And a deep unnatural desire to win at all costs, even losing your integrity.
I wondered how long it would take for you to step in and back up spider9 when the pressure was building up but this time it took longer than I thought. Do you really think us Eloi are that stupid? Your wording is vertually the same. Shame on you.
**For someone who has purported to be an author "...a police station who was under arrest." is a classic! What had that poor police station done??(:-0)**
At least you've got a good memory unlike others on this forum. You accused me of being childish, but when there's a force 7 hurricane and monsoon rain lashing down outside your front door in the Philippines and the internet connection keeps of going down it's a mite difficult to keep up to your high ? standards ;0)
The telling point is that "None has yet been shown to be fully effective " As a person suffering from Tinnitus it's not something I'd risk inflicting on anybody in a call centre, they're just the small fry doing a crap job for peanuts.
We don't actually know that these phone scammers are the small fry, do we, or that they're earning peanuts, that is just conjecture? Judging from the following statement it seems they're quite proficient in the technical side of hacking, planting trojans or viruses and fraudulantly gleaning all one's life savings.
“Many of these technical support companies are able to gain victims’ trust by claiming they work for Microsoft, are a Microsoft Certified Partner, or [are] somehow affiliated with Microsoft. In some instances, once the tech scammer gains remote access to a consumer’s computer, they will use scare tactics — telling the consumer that if they do not pay for support services they will lose all of their files, suffer a computer crash, or risk the leak of personal identifiable information. Pop-up browser windows simulating virus-scanning software have fooled victims into either downloading a fake anti-virus program (at a substantial cost) or an actual virus that will open up whatever information is on the user’s computer to scammers.”
BTW my father suffered from the ringing in the ear syndrome and you have my sympathy. He found it was greatly eleviated by acupunture and hypnotherapy.
