I've had more car accidents as well today, that must be at least a dozen numbers blocked from the same people for this insurance scam

I like to get through to the actual pe4son when i get these calls.
When they ask what injuries i suffered i reply "my head fell off" , for some reason they end the call.

Well if they want to waste my time ...
I definitely do this if it have time. Whilst they are other phone to me they aren't scamming vulnerable members of society

Statistically 1 in 10 phising scams return a positive result, believe it or not. Bear I get emails telling me there is a warrant issued for my arrest for tax fraud and I must contact them.

I had one of these on Saturday. I was stood at the checkout at tesco😂

It's weird how a load of us have recieved it in a short space of time. I think 90% of folk just f*ck it off. That said I could imagine a vulnerable pensioner could easily fall for it.

My mum and Dad are 79 and 81. They bought some double glazing off a guy who came to the door in February. I went fecking mental thinking it's defo a scam. They now have new double glazing all round😂. I still told them not to buy stuff of a bloke on the door step.

I think its more moved into using emails and dodgy phone calls/texts.

Sam here, two HMRC calls in the last two weeks, last week a you've had an accident in the last 2 years. That one I said yes to, and when she asked me for more details, told her I was eating ice cream and it dripped on my trousers.

Bunch of time wasting pricks, but I'll play along as the longer they are on the phone with me, its less time scamming someone else.

The accident one we all get, a couple of years ago a man on the phone said I had recently had an accident. I said yeah, how did you know? He asked for details and I told him I had stood on some lego my daughter left out, could I sue the careless cow? He said he wouldn't recommend it. To which I replied what kind of lawyer are you.
