There is a new one around here.
Comes up as PSE&G an 800#.

They leave a message, Call right away something is very wrong with your account.

I checked reverse number and it can't find the number at all.

I answered once and they started telling me about my account.
I broke them off with a F_!# @&#^$^# A__H__LE!

End of calls to me.

They had a news report telling how many dummies sent them payment to "fix" the problem

There is a sucker born everyday.

I love it when they catch these scumbags.

If someone called me and claimed to be from Microsoft, I'd talk about the Seahawks ("Yeah Russell Wilson is Da Man, but with Baldwin gone . . . "), Mariners (Think they'll ever not suck again . . ."), and Blazers ("Resistance is futile. Give in to the dark side . . .") until they either hung up or said they weren't in Seattle - at which point I'd say "Then you're not from Microsoft" and hang up.

An old but renewed scam is a phone call from "Revenue Canada", with a warrant for your arrest for unpaid taxes...unless you pay up.....with I-tune cards......

And people have actually fallen for it.....one lady paid over $17,000 in i-tune cards because they had her so scared that she would go to jail....

And yet the Prime Minister will dodge jail for what he's done.....go figure.....
