The 24 Days Of Shelfmas – Day 4

On the fourth day of Shelfmas, the critters gave to me…

Four calling frauds!

TROLL: …yes and my routing number is 8675309.  Yeah, just like the song!

BUB: Did you just give out your checking account information over the phone?

TROLL: Yeah!  My car warranty is about to expire!  And you know I can’t afford costly repairs on my unemployment wages!

BUB: Since when do you have a car?

TROLL: Obviously I have a car if my car warranty is about to expire, dumbass!  Why else would an unknown number bother calling me in the first place?  Oh, and now that I’ve blown all my jack re-upping the warranty…. mind if I bum a cigarette off you?

BUB: Sorry, but you’re a spam risk.  *CLICK!*

  1. The scammers are working overtime this year. MOST of the phone calls we are now getting are Christmas scams some of which are so blatantly scammish they’re funny. Still, they are irritating!

  2. That’s odd (as in eerie, not specifically weird) Today I got a letter through snail mail that informed me of a data breach at a certain medical services office here. It’s a huge honking one too, so why they have sketchy security over patient records is mystifying. They plugged the troll hole and fixed the problem, but long after the horse had run far away. They’ve offered a security monitoring service for a month free. Now I’m paranoid, but it seems odd that they’re asking for sensitive information so they can initiate the monitoring service. Um…I smell troll dung..

  3. Those warranty callers text and call me every. single. week. Pox on the whole lot of ’em.

    The shelf critters have been trying to give me that gift too! Every day for the past couple of weeks. It’s really pissing me off.

  5. I have two phones. The “regular” landline that isn’t a landline but is actually a Wi-Fi phone is almost 100% spam calls. I discovered NOT answering it at all is my road to something almost like sanity.

    Even the computer auto-diallers have given up on me. I feel unloved. Maybe I should request to be re-added to the phone directory…

    I SQUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWK in Morse code rather that use the phone.
