Ref: call from 2092201908
I was called by the above number. An Indian sounding chap and the conversation went thus-
Caller: “is that “Mr Higgins?”
(I neither denied or confirmed my name- and still don’t!)
Me: “who’s that?”
Caller: “this is [name- didn’t quite catch it] I’m calling about the computer you just bought”
Me: “how do you know I just bought a computer?” (I haven’t- first mistake; I build my own computers and have done for well over 10 years- second mistake; I source my parts separately for best price- third mistake; idiot!)
Caller: “you just bought a computer reference number [6 or 7 digit number] from ....”
Me: “how do you know I just bought a computer?”
Caller: “you are the sole user of computer (some reference to a computer and its number [what?]...”
Me: (insistent tone) “right, how do you know I just bought a computer, how do you know I am the sole user, how do you know I even have a computer, and how have you gathered all this information because I think the Information Commissioner might be interested to know?”
Me: “hello? Don’t you want to speak to me anymore?”
Phone goes dead.
Dialling the number gives an unavailable tone.
This is a s close to verbatim as I recall and these notes were made immediately afterwards.
Tell them nothing, confirm or deny nothing; everything you confirm or deny gives them information about you. If you have just bought a new computer, ask them to contact you by mail, since they should have your address- DON’T GIVE IT TO THEM!! A genuine company will be glad to be open and upfront about what and who they are and contact you in the way you prefer.
