Default Playing with Cold Callers

I have a couple of lines that I use when I get scammers or cold callers calling me

My best answer is "He just died....TODAY". That makes the colder caller so awkward they just hang up

When I get Microsoft call me: I tell them I use Apple products only

Accident insurance callers call: I ask them which accident are they referring too? The one where I spilt milk on the floor?

Share your lines or stories

My reply to accident claims callers : Yes, I did have an accident. A girl touched me inappropriately on public transport.

I do not pick up. Set some one-touch text reply like "not interested" etc.

This. Forget scammers, I never pick up calls where I don't recognize the number - if it's important they will leave a message and I can always return.

I get almost daily calls from recruiters - Few of them got my number when i was looking for jobs 4 years ago - they still call today and they know too much about me.. knows exactly what I want.. it's scary sometimes. VM sounds like my old gf or best buddy called or something.

There are some smart scammed out there. Calling with what appears as the Social Security phone number.

They claim that your SS number is suspended because of some **** you did, and there is a warrant out for your arrest.

A quick look at the website of SS shows that your SS number can never ever be suspended.

$10 million is the amount people have been scammed out of by these *******s.

The FTC calls it a 'scam within a scam'.

They haven't called ever since I hung up on them.

Same here. Always let them go to voicemail when it's an unknown number.
