  1. I got my Truecall box 6 months ago and cold calls are a thing of the past. From five a day on average down to zero… You don't realise how many irritating calls you get until it stops; can't say I miss them though.

    • Surely I could get the same effect by just unplugging my phone?  A lot cheaper?  But then I wouldn't have anything to write about……. 😐

  2. They must have got the message that you hate them and they are just trying to annoy you now.

  3. My Nephew had a great game with the MicroSoft baddies too. He pretended to be a very old and half deaf man and had an hour of pure joy as they tried to help him. He told them he was getting by on his Lotto winnings in the course of it too and he loved his new typewriter with the TV attached to it. So when it came to sending them money he told them that he'd be delighted to have their support but he said that he didn't understand credit cards and paid all his bills bang on time by cheque instead. Asking for an address, they gave him 344 Something-Strasse in Holland somewhere and he promised to post the cheque the next day when he was collecting his pension.


    Three weeks later, they back on feigning surprise that they hadn't got his cheque but he pleaded that indeed he'd sent it three weeks before as arranged. The punchline was when he read out the address to them as 244 Something-Strasse and the line went dead.

    • The "old duffer" is a great one.  I tried that and kept apologising for clicking the wrong button causing the PC to reboot all the time.  I kept asking him to wait and muttered incessantly about how crap Windows was.  He got pissed off in the end and hung up.

      Just talking to a neighbour – she tells 'em she works in Microsoft and asks to meet them for coffee. 😀

  4. I have had a lot of fun ,depends whether male or female but he result is hte same.

    Female , lead along for a while , and then throw in , in my seediest voice I can come up withj , " I bet you have lovely breasts,he he" Often they ask me to repaet myslf as i fhtey can't belive what htey heard.

    Male:, but , " Ooh ,I am getting a hard penis just talking to you, please keep taking , oooh ahhh "


    For some reason they hang up on me. 

    • Ah here now… I wouldn't go that far.  These idiots who phone are only doing a job – the real criminals are their employers.  I wouldn't insult them, just fuck with their heads.   

  5. I had the same problem with a society who were "partners of EDF"   (EDF = Electricité de France).   After more than 40 calls in 2 months (each one logged) I went to the Gendarmes and made a complaint that they were hassling me.  They contacted them and were told that my number was on their automatic computer and that they could not remove it.   I thought that the Gendarme was going to 'blow-up'.   He told them in no uncertain terms that if I received one more call from them that they would be before the Judge.

    Strangely, I have received no more calls.

  6. 002011772013. This chap is at it again. +20 Egypt (0)11 Etisalat Phone company, based in Cairo. You can scare the crap out of him by telling him this stuff. He is using international calling cards, his phone is prepaid and I think registered, I have sent a request to Etisalat for his information which I will forward regardless to the National Telecommunication Authority of Egypt also in Cairo. You can call Etisalat at 0020-23-534-6333 (a landline) and complain and/or make an additional complaint to NTRA Egypt at 0020-23-534-4000 (also a landline). I hear Egyptian prison is lovely this time of year.
