This was an early morning call and it caught me off guard. However I mumbled something about ‘having to do something’ (i.e. set the phone recording) and asked them to start again saying who they were. Throughout the call they couldn’t make up their mind what company they were calling from.

The highlight though was being asked if I had a false leg!

For info they called from: 004588632589 and the call quality was awful!

It’s been a while since I recorded a phone scammer but I had another one today. I missed the first 30 seconds or so as I was fumbling with my iPhone to find the SoundCloud app which it appears I’ve managed to delete. Or Mini-MaFt has deleted… So I quickly launched up the Voice Memo app and hit record.

The results of my entertaining call from 009806553210 are below. It’s just over 30 minutes long though, but I think it’s worth it. Especially if you want to know my clothes size and how ‘maximise’ has changed my letter-writing experience.

I like to think I’ve done a public service – keeping these guys from the rest of the world for 30 minutes may have saved someone from getting duped.

I managed to record a scam call today. I admit that it wasn’t my best work, I didn’t even get to tell them I was on a Mac and I know their tricks… But still, it was a first attempt and I think I was concentrating more on getting it recorded than actually dealing with them.

I do like to think though that because of me wasting their time for 12 minutes it means one less person today will have been tricked. I provide a public service, don’t you know?!
