    Default Indian telephone discount scam.

    Just had a call from you know whom. He offered a discount on my landline - you know what I told him!!!!!!

    Looks like if they can't get PC uptakes, it now comes down to phones - oh dear, so many more phones than PC faults.

    We get these calls like once a week They're for cheap international calls. We usually just say no, we don't make international calls, but sometimes I get the phone and I just tell em that I use VoIP (GVoice). They ask how much I pay, I just tell them that I pay '$0.00'. They get all confused and just hangup lol.
    My Tech:

    i5 4670, 8GB RAM, 1TB 7200RPM HDD, AOC 1080p monitor, K280 case
    Nexus 7 II (2013)
    Nexus 4

    Yeah. Scams are really obvious! I've received a lot of calls like that and you know what I tell them? "Nice try!"

    Besides, I know all about scams. I get all my updates from http://callercenter.com and it's always the latest. The website even posts the scammer's phone number. With this, I don't think scammers still stand a chance.
