OK Zero10, you kept your end of the bargin. My turn. You need to make a choice:

1. Purse
2. Back scratcher
3. Bottle opener
4. Key ring

Choose wisely.

I've had many of these calls over the last few months. I've done the "Ubuntu" routine, the "I'm also working for MS. What department are you in? I may know you" routine as well as several others.

I've now resorted to just telling them to "Go away (sexually) in short, sharp, jerky movements"

Seems to work

I still feel neglected, all I get are calls to refinance my home or credit card overload help. Damn..
I would love to get a scam on my computer as I have recording equipment all ready to go.

I really don't know what I've done wrong. These idiots are calling me every day almost. I recieved another call today. I mean, how many times do I have to call them scammers and hang up on them before they get the message?

Interesting phone call
