    Default Phone calls from "Spark Networks"

    I've been getting a lot of those calls with the mechanical voice from "Spark networks" telling me my internet and landline are going to be disconnected.

    All bull***t of course. What I want to know is, has anyone here actually pressed 1 for more information, and if so, what happens?

    They will need all your passwords and your Bank Account details... Oops - that was a mistaka to make!

    Is that actually what happens, or just your (quite possibly correct) guess?

    Just had a new one. From "the cybersecurity team" and I could press 1 for more info or press 2 "to continue the termination process". I wonder what happens if you press 2?

    We're looking for a volunteer to "press 2". Any takers?

    I rang Spark about it, and yes - an absolute scam.

    I got caught with an IRD scam a few months ago. It all looked very authentic, and then $1500 moved out of my credit card overnight. I'm a little more careful now (although the bank gave the money back to me). There was a strong message that i wouldn't get a second chance.

    I wonder how many people have been sucked in.

    I have had about 4 of these calls I thought press 1 would be for a 0900 number or what ever these Nigerian or Indian huas use then a charge for ringing it. I have told my wife and kids dont push 1 just hang up.
    Its amazing how Potatoes give us chips,fries and Vodka.
