Bloody scammers!

I am so irritated! Twice this afternoon I recieved phone calls from scammers pretending to be my visa debit card company, telling me there is a transaction of 600 euro on my account, and if I’d like to talk to a representative to press one now. Obviously I hung up on them. I mean I know full well they are scammers. My visa debit card company would never call me with an automated voice telling me there is a transaction on my account. Its so frustrating, I got the first call and then less than an hour later another call came in. Can these people ever piss off? I am so not falling for their pathetic scam! If they think I am that gullible they have another thing coming because, I am not! I pity those people who are though, and who do fall for such scams, these people dont know when enough is enough or when to stop!

  1. I like to play with them! The ones that call to say they understand I’ve been in an accident… I keep them on the phone for as long as possible trying to get them to tell me which of my many accidents they’re referring to. Strangely, due to data protection, they’re not allowed to discuss my details with me 🤣

    1. Omg that’s a crazy making thing! I’ve never had them tell me I was in an accident. Its always I’m from Microsoft and do you have a computer, your computer is infected, here is what you need to do. If its not that, they’re pretending to be from the visa debit card company. Ug le sigh.

      1. Some people keep an old computer or a virtual computer ready, and when the fake Microsoft scammers call, they watch how much damage is done to their sacrificial computer. Some of them are security researchers, some just think it’s funny.

  2. Scammers hit both home and cell phone here, I just don’t answer numbers I don’t recognize. Least toward this irritation the land line phone company has started labeling ‘potential scam’ on the caller iD for iffy numbers.

      1. I wish my cell provider offered the option because the spammers on there are relentless. They call and call and call and even when you demand your name be removed and they not call again…they call again. And my cheapie prepaid plan doesn’t have a block feature so it’s just dozens of spam calls a week, maddening.
