I got the usual phone call – at 10pm no less – you know THAT phone call with a PARTICULAR accent, the one where the guy says, ‘I’m calling about your windows computer’? I swore black and blue, up and down and sideways, telling this guy off for ringing so late and telling him I’m not that stupid.

I hung up.

Hubby walked back into the room, standing there just LOOKING at me.  I had his FULL attention.  I explained.

He was DISAPPOINTED. He wanted to have some fun.

I feel bad now…

Have you ever tortured these *very helpful people* who want to ‘fix you computer’?  In my opinion the Geneva convention does not apply to phone hackers, so please, SHARE your tales of messing with scammers.
