    Funny call

    Post  sinister_midget on Wed Dec 06, 2017 10:15 am

    I just got a call from Nigeria. Caller ID said Nigeria.

    I answered and was told by the "IRS agent" I was talking to that I still owed money from last year. I had trouble not laughing. But it became uncontrollable when he said he needed me to tell him my name and social to confirm who I am.

    I had to hang up then. Too bad, I was looking forward to playing with him a little.

    The previous dummies who tried that with me at least had the smarts to make Caller ID show Washington (state, not DC) as the origin of the call. The accent wasn't successfully disguised. But it was close enough to maybe fool a few people.

    One of the most important reasons for studying history is that
    virtually every stupid idea that is in vogue today has been tried
    before and proved disastrous before, time and again.
