The best ones are when they start with "I am speaking on behalf of XXX". i simply say "so you don't actually work for XXX" and let them try and talk their way out of it before I ask them to "go away", and Lancsbreaker yes obviously I knew it was a scam but I would love to fill in one of their forms, however I bet I wouldn't be the first to give them some "wrong information"

I don't know if people realize just how cheap we can get things on eBay in the UK compared with abroad. I want a rear silencer for my old Peugeot 206 in Spain that I have bodged up with fire cement, I can get one for £23 inc delivery in the UK and the cheapest that I can find in Spain is about twice the price plus €26 delivery.
So in real terms that's about 3 times the price ! Hmm I wonder if I can get one in the overhead locker on the next flight ?

You're well advised not to click Gordon, as these days the link can hide a nasty piece of malware that can install itself on your computer. It can genuinely send your cash to PO Box 1 Lagos!

I had to have a long chat with 84 y o mother about all things nasty on emails the other day. She listened but I don't think she took it on, let alone understood. I won't let her have a smart phone, which means she can't have the Serco Covid 19 app - thankfully! She would.probanlyamahe to check in as Vatican City and have to self isolate despite.mever having left the country

This YouTube channel has some interesting vids.

Apparently some of the work was the basis for a Panorama investigation a short time ago.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSP_0iLzTgk

I especially enjoyed the one where he had obtained a company's recorded telephone conversations and their internal CCTV files and used the time stamps to match the CCTV and the Phone conversations.

I think this was the one (there are 4 in the series).

I've had someone trying to sell me a new boiler recently, clearly calling from a call centre in India, ringing a number that I've only ever used for registering internet domains. They appear as a selection of UK mobile numbers which were originally issued by Ofcom to Vodafone.

First call: ignored
Second call: answered, they put the phone down
Third call: answered, listened, asked where they got my number from, they put the phone down
Fourth call: answered, listened, asked again where they got my number from, listened to some random tale of "we're calling everyone with boilers more than 7 years old" and I put the phone down

Fifth call: they got both barrels

There's not been a sixth!

Much better compo possible if you are injured in a road accident and are not the insured party paying out.

Maybe you should try it on the government, they could be easily led if persuaded

I'm amazed you have a credit card Eric. Thought you would be a good old fashioned pie and mash man.

I had a phone call earlier today from the "HMRC Fraud Department" apparently if I didn't press '1' and speak to their advisor immediately I would be "arrested shortly".

No sign of the rozzers yet
