Funniest I’ve heard is people in big cities who don’t have cars or drive getting those notices that supposedly come from their car dealer. 

One thing I find funny is that I keep getting E-mails from my E-mail server company stating that my inbox was full and that there were undelivered mails that I should login to remove some of the older E-mails.

What I find funny about them is that my E-mail server company is a Japanese company and they only send me notifications when my E-mail server will undergo maintenance... and all of them are in Japanese. But the warnings I keep getting are all in English... LOL. That's a dead giveaway that it's not from my E-mail server company. And if you look a the full E-mail headers... sure enough, it's from somewhere else in the world. But even without looking at the full E-mail headers, just seeing it in English gives me a chuckle.

FWIW

Haha!  One of my favorite tricks is to pretend I'm hard of hearing so I keep asking the caller to talk louder.  I had one guy nearly screaming into the phone before he hung up.

I remember that.  It’s so easy now to block calls if they don’t change IP addresses.

I did that once with a Windows Store employee. Of course there is no such thing.  I let them go through their whole speech and and said can you fix my IOS?  Oh yes, sure sure. Just give us access. Then I said it’s very difficult for you to fix my Windows program when I’m using an Apple product.  They hung up.

We even get similar here but they land in the queue until they are deleted.

You’d think they would catch on sooner, but if you sound vulnerable on the phone, they think they’ve got a live prospect. Then they realize they are the target.

I'm sure they must get some gullible victims or else they wouldn't waste their time.

They do. If they can make thousands with one victim all they need is one or two a day to make more money than they ever could at a typical job.

hahahahaha.

The more of their time we can waste, the less they have to scam someone else
