Spam..

Hello all,how are you today?
Thanks so much for the well wishes..my plaster comes off today for the big reveal..apparently its going to be black..we will see.
Well i have been getting a few bits of spam just lately..must admit i love reading them..not just on my blog but email as well.
I laugh myself stupid at times..i love the ones that start with "Dear friend" or just lately "Chosen one"..i  have been chosen by god apparently to share in the wealth of a friend i never even knew i had in some far off hot country,all i have to do to share it is provide my bank details and personal details..yep like i am going too..some people actually fall for it and then whinge when they have been cleared out by them and the bank won't help..why should they ..you gave away your details..bit harsh but we have been warned by the banks and numerous adverts not to do it.
The best ones are for sex aids..there are pills out there that came make me a rampaging stallion and all the ladies will love me..really????
Also the investment opportunities..wow i never knew that for a few pounds i can turn around at least a million.Amazing but apparently the email is for my eyes only and i am not to share the secret of its success with anyone else.
Plus now there are chain emails and if i don't forward it on some awful fate will befall me..nope i delete it..unfortunately some people actually do this and then wonder why all of a sudden they are inundated with cranks,grifters and fraudsters.
The one that really bugs me is the phone calls..since registering with the TPS..my house phone never rings and if it does happen to be one of them boy do they get it..i even threatened one with legal action..the best one is when i answer the phone and say "Hello..Sister Smith on labour and delivery which room do you want" or "Hello ,Detective Constable Smith..you have reached the fraud squad office"..haha they soon put the phone down.
My husband had one on the phone for 20 minutes once pretending he was a chicken and made all the noises like he was laying an egg..i nearly wet myself..but the man was persistant and when my husband started screaming "o my god this egg is stuck" the man gave up..tht was hysterical.
So what about you ladies..do you get bugged by them and if you do what do you do?

  1. Love the chicken in labour idea. When I get calls like this on my land line, I just pretend I'm a minor and ask if they want my mum, which of course they do, and I then go to find her...leaving them hanging on until they get bored.

  2. So funny and clever. I usually use the rather boring I don't speak English (French or Spanish). Had one of the purported Microsoft Office "engineers" actually F*** me the other day when I told him I don't have a computer.

  3. Whisper it quietly but since we moved we've not had any junk phone calls.
    I used to do a very loud whistle down the phone but it deafened me as well as them!

  5. I pass the phone to my toddler. Funnily enough he doesn't know much about gas suppliers but will ask you where his lunch is!

  6. I too had a lot of spam of the 'naughty' variety. I was a bit stunned the first time I got some. Now I just delete. I spent twenty minutes the other week chatting with a lady called 'Fiona'. I struggled to understand her very heavy Indian accent. It took that longto convince her that I didn't have ppi on a mortgage, loan, catalogue etc. The phone now filters spam calls so I simply ignore them

  7. Why waste twenty minutes of your precious life? Just put the phone down.
