    Lightbulb Phone call from the Indian Tech Support, apparently the USA didn't shut them down!

    So I had one of those Indian "PC Tech Support" scammers call up tonight. I didn't manage to get the first sorta 90 seconds of the call coz I was busy downloading the app for my phone. I'd started videoing it but decided to just grab a voice recording instead.

    If you've never heard one, this is basically me being an absolute ass with the guy, pretending I don't know where the percentage sign is, like I'm playing absolute *retard* here... I also sound really weird coz of the low quality plus it's been transcoded by SoundCloud.

    The odd thing is our number is a VoIP number with 2talk, and I'm not even sure it's in the phone book...

    Anyways, enjoy!

    You devil you. You strung him out for a long time. When you told him that you worked in IT I noticed how quick he was to terminate the call. Good one.

    You were to nice to him and you did not say you were a Vodafone Ninga and offer your services to him
