    How to deal with microsoft windows phone scammers
    So I got yet another foreign sounding man phone me just now. I had to ask a couple of times what he wanted because the accent was so thick.
    Finally realized he was calling about the windows program on my computer they had detected was not working properly.
    Oh, said I and then I took a deepest breath I could and let out the highest, loudest longest scream that was physically possible. No words, just a magnificent, healthy scream - and then I hung up.

    Great stress releaser that left me with the biggest smile for the longest time. I must make a note to myself to get a strong high-pitched whistle to keep by the phone for any other telemarketers or scammers. Just had to share this, I'm feeling so pleased
    I actually don't like my Windows phone much I mean it gets the job done and its pretty fast for a low end phone but the apps really do suck and I think I'd go mad if I didn't have my nexus 7 2013 for apps and games, witch by the way ravensword 2 is awesome

    As I mentioned above once you know its one of these scammers on the phone, just let out a great, long, high pitched scream at the top of your lungs and then hang up - that is my favourite revenge

    An air horn works well for that. Asking them if you can call them back at their home while they are having dinner works also, sometimes. Had one guy actually give me his home # but I never called. (I am Sure it was his home number!!)

    Mutter mutter.................silly people's wiv silly personses ringing them.................full scam is tell you they have monitored a problem with your pc and ask you to type in a Web address directing you to a help web Site and as soon as you do it locks your pc. They then call you back and ask for $200 - 400 to release it!

    Get a cheap referees whistle and blow it as hard as you can down the phone to the caller and the results are as follows....

    1. You go red in the face.........
    2. You feel slightly dizzy...........
    3. You hear the caller screaming..(you will just have to trust me on this because you won't hear anything while you are blowing the whistle but the caller WILL be screaming)..............
    4. Prepare your court defence as it is illegal to do....(well in the UK anyway)......
    5. Sit back and relax with a large drink in the knowledge that you are guaranteed to have burst the callers eardrum.......
    6. Wait for your next unsuspecting victim to ring........

    (please note it has to be a genuine referee whistle.)

    Not a police, train guard or wolf whistle. The one with the little pea rattling around inside it. the frequency at which they produce their sound is guaranteed to burst eardrums when amplified down the phone.......

    I'll get back in my box now...........

    You know, I have always wondered, is it better to be a dumb azz or a smart azz?
    I have been accused of being both as well as being a wise azz and of course, just a plain azz.

    Most of us here have cracked screens! Not on our tablets but on the monitors through which we look at life!

    It's also a perfect fit for a glass of brandy and a pasty as well as see eh? I'd keep an eye on your daughter! If she can use a pb and an iPad at 1yr old then that means she will probably pass her driving test at around 9yrs old, graduate from university at around 13yrs old and put her parents in an old folks home by the time she is 19yrs old!!!!!!! Scary
