This f*cker must not have a life, and he gets paid to rip off and harass the people who don't fall for his BS!

I was going to answer every question truthfully, until he got to the specific questions like...

He knows my name!  Any fool can find it if they try, I paid AT&T 6 or 7 bucks a month for a non-published number.  SCREW YOU AT&T!  I was going to say, when he asked for account numbers, my personal information, SSN, address.

I don't feel comfortable giving you this information.  Just trying to waste as much of his time as I can!

NOW!  And this one has me a little bothered!

I have gotten calls from Microsoft before, I just tell them to f*ck off!  Today!  I get a recorded message from my own number, ever heard of 'Swatting'? A person from Microsoft says that my IP address has been compromised by a foreign entity and will be shut down if I don't call them.

What bothers me is that our f*cking government can do nothing to stop these scammers!





The government doesn't care they rather bring illegals in. (left wingers). And I bet you answer or call those cc scammers are foreign. Probably Nigerian Rusfian or India or Iran.
I approve this message.

Well, well, well.  Got a credit card bill today from Montgomery Ward for $275.  I have to say it was (is)  a really slick phishing scam.  It came with a return envelope and the usual pamphlets that are in regular cc bills.  But there was absolutely no contact info for inquiries, card services, etc (like with real cc's), just a number for you to call to arrange for different ways of payment (debit/cc/checking account #'s)
  Now, it may be "legit" (as in identity theft using my name and address), but as MW went out of business over 35 years ago (as confirmed by my neighbor who used to work for them way back then), I'm not responding to it in any way (not even going to their website to look),  so I'll just wait & see what develops.  Eh, maybe I'll check my real cc to make sure my cc wasn't compromised, then run the "bill" over to the local cops to see what they make of it...
I just want to slap these scamming bastards...  Angry

^ LOL  Go after them, Mr. T!

As if these stupid holiday movies on Sundays wasn't enough, the brainiacs at this network think they are doing me a favor!  WRONG!  I'm not the only one who is bothered by this idiotic programming.


I want to hit something! How about the f*cking program director at ION TV?

G Wayne Newcomb won't be watching after this sunday!! for my Christmas movies, I watch Hallmark!! I watch Ion on Sunday for NCIS LA!!

Eileen Benedict OK, now does the #ION audience, who loves its CRIME shows, seem like an audience who would like corny Christmas love stories ~ FOR AN ENTIRE MONTH, at that??!! Uuuugh!!! #Iwantmycrimeshowsback !! #nothingonTV !
🚔🚑🗡🔨


Samantha Eckstein ION has several other channels they could put these sappy, predictable movies on. There’s a reason people watch this channel & every Christmas season you ruin your schedule. Ugh.

David L. Smith I am happy they are returning. They're silly and cheesy and sometimes not that great, but some of them can make you feel all warm and fuzzy and can get you in the Christmas spirit.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

What pisses me off?

1. Work.
2. Driving to work.
3. Body aching from work.
4. Driving home from work.
5. Trying to relax at home but instead bitching about work.
6. Trying to fall asleep while still pissed off about work.
7. Waking up on a work day.
8. Getting up from my soft and warm bed or sofa to get ready to go to work.
9. Work.
10. Did I mention work?
11. Yeah... work.

Ouch

First things first: Hate to be the bearer of 'Late Breaking News', but Monkey Wards is far from out of business - never forget we live in 'The Land of the Free and the Home of the Bankrupt', but you may still have a scammer - I don't know. Check your credit score via Credit Karma and dispute anything online through them (it is free and easy and they get fast results).

If it is a scam, one good thing you can do is get it to your local sheriff or police. At least they can warnings out to the general public - especially senior citizens through meetings or media. 
I've done my share of chasing bastard cockroaches like this with little success. Nowadays I know them when they call, when they beg, or when they mail stuff. So many of these jerks were raised with no morals, scruples, or values...or are from foreign lands where English is the second language and the first doesn't have words or meanings for those important personal foundations. Ever notice most of these little criminals are from the last few generations? Kind of makes a person feel a bit responsible - take action.

ShockedPlease don't tell me this is all making you a little crazy & suicidal and you've been finding relief in the gun section of Cabela's, sizing up rapid fire automatic weapons! Leave your family and the migrant community alone, 3J! 'Value diversity', I say!
Or
Read what you wrote and remove the word 'work'.
Imagine yourself THERE and then remember having a job is not just a responsibility, it's a privilege. Then pat yourself on that poor old back of yours and remind yourself how very good you are at it - you MUST be given you still have a job.

Yeah, I went to the cops today & filled out a report, got a nice Identity Theft booklet, and now have to write lots of letters.  And yes, figured out MW is still around (that won't save them from my letters LOL   )  I've got an idea where the data breach occurred, but have to get the info about the fraudulant transaction first, then sic the cops & Feds on it if (when) my suspicions are confirmed.
Yes, scammers, you can go rip people off just as easy as going around and kicking dogs, but eventually you'll make the mistake of kicking John Wick's dog...  LOL

Well. gather your evidence before tossing it to the Feds - believe me, they set aside so much simply because the problem is already overwhelming and they do not have anywhere near the inspired resources to go kick ass as there are little criminals out there - but they will if enough rock-solid evidence is placed in front of them.
In the case of phone scammers, I've turned that into my own personal mental playground, especially when I recognize offshore accents - I just become one of them back on the line, all the way to the accent - and converse with them. It can be SO MUCH FUN screwing with someone's brains, leading them to the point of getting them really upset by asking if their sister is available. It is unbelievable how some people implode on the phone. You end up knowing they have might just decide this phone stuff just isn't worth it.

LOL VERY similar to precisely what I do, although some of the responses I get are more in the line of, "SHADDUP!!! YOU A MUTHERFU*&%R!!!! SHADDUP!!! SHADDUP!!!!", in some foreign accent...

One I would suggest is to pretend to be the supervisor of the phone cubical farm and tell the scammer "This is Sanjay (or other common name of the accent) in the office.  Please to gather your things and leave.  You are fired.  Have a nice day!"   LOL
