Another new Scam

Postby EnsonExpress » Tuesday 7 October 2014, 11:33

Answered my phone this morning, number not displayed.

Hello, Dennis, this is Kevin from the crime prevention office. Nothing to worry about. We are doing a nationwide crime prevention initiative. Blah, blah, magazine, 10,000 copies, we'd like to feature you as the only delivery service in the mag. Blah, blah.

I said, Love to, I presume it's free? Oh no, it's a paid for advert. Don't want to know. He hung up. :wave:

Please feel free to pass on my feelings. :evil:

In hindsight, I regretted warning him off so soon - I usually like to lead scammers on so that they waste their time and money on me and can't bother anybody else for as long as they are on my line!

I had exactly the same thing when I was taking bookings for the function band I was in. A representative of a wedding magazine rang up to give us the 'unique opportunity' to be the only function band to advertise in a prime spot of their magazine :blahblah: :blahblah: . Needless to say I wasn't interested once he mentioned the £200 or so cost... :wink:
