I get at least one a day and just love shouting obscenities back down the phone, but this mornings just left me sat on the stairs being unable to do nothing at all other than laugh in tears………

phone rang at 08.30 and a computer animated voice started...… not the best time to wake me up on a cold winters morning


"this is HMRC contacting you with important news regarding your arrears in the tax that you owe from 2018-2019, and a warrant for your arrest in this matter has been issued.

please ring 01611...*********[ I didn't quite catch the number that would lead me to a phone number costing me a quid a second should I have actually called it] to cancel this arrest warrant and pay your £365.00p arrears by credit/debit card immediately!

by this time I was sat on the stairs in tears with laughter...…………...but its no wonder old, senile or frail people are conned left right and center……...by the time I had given myself a headache laughing, some other asshole had rung asking me if I wanted to take place in a lifestyle questionnaire, and I lost the original number...……

oh well, tomorrow i'll have a tape recorder ready to tape the "advice" from the w anchor. and grab the number for handing over to the bt.
