Rude scammers
« on: February 17, 2014, 02:37:13 PM »

So I had a phone call this morning from a subcontinental voice saying he was from Microsoft something or other and I said "No, thankyou" and hung up. the phone kept on ringing and I picked it up a while later and he said"why you hang up on me? we fix your computer so it never ever work again!". So i put it down again, he left a similar message on the answerphone. He went on ringing all morning. I hate these people, or at least the criminals who employ them. I thought they had given up a while ago but obviously not.
