Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Ref: call from 2092201908
I was called by the above number. An Indian sounding chap and the conversation went thus-

Caller: “hello”

Me: “hello”

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?”

[Long silence]

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.

Has called my house a number of times. I have told him this time if he ever calls again I would report to the BBB and a lawyer. He is now calling after 9:00 pm which a real company would not.

Called repeatedly for an hour. I told the person I would have them arrested if they continued to call my number.

Its a FEAR scam.
