Called me twice this week

Got a call from these bastards on Wednesday.

"Hello this is Mary from Department of Education, I need to contact your IT manager, can you let me have his email address."

"If you're really from the Department for Education then the should already have our proper contact email details,"

She put the phone down.

She called back on Thursday

"Hello this is Mary from the Department of Communications, I need to contact your IT manager, can you let me have his..."

I didn't let her finish the sentence.

Note to scammers:

It's the Department For Education, not Of

There is no Department of Communications...
