Brits conned out of nearly £24m in phone scams IN ONE YEAR

Bear in mind that, statistically speaking, 50% of the population are BELOW average intelligence, which is why so many of these fraudsters get away with it.

I have got fed up "stringing along" the calls from "Windows here, you have a problem with your computer" (max 20 mins of their time wasted) and leaving them hanging on the line while I go get the person they asked for. Warning to all scammers, I have acquired a REALLY LOUD whistle!!!!
