- the usual Microsoft Technician calling because one of our PCs is infected, which receives either the hang up treatment or I will string them along to see how long I can keep them on the phone with no intention doing as they ask, thus stopping them call someone else.
- or will we do a survey and I promise NEVER to call you again (No, you won't, but 6 of the people you sell my details to will!) I did the survey once and gave some absolutely absurd answers. I'm still getting calls for that name years later, showing that they do sell the details to others or they just don't stop,
- or my pet hate, the silent call or the hangup on voicemail, The other person has cleared - why phone me just to hang up on my voicemail?
None of these calls have been from anyone with any type of british accent. There is usually a long pause and then you hear call centre noises in the background
But I have been getting a new one (new to me, that is!)
A recorded message telling me that my Internet is compromised OH NO!
