Re: HMRC - Tax Refund

I had a phone call yesterday from someone with a foreign accent (that's not unusual) & I asked who they were & they tried to say Australia Tax Office, I just replied, "Yeah, sure you are! Ha ha ha!" I couldn't help but laugh at such a pathetic attempt, the scumbad! He hung up.

Re: HMRC - Tax Refund

Like the phone calls I had from someone claiming to be from Microsoft, telling me that my computer was infecting the whole internet with viruses!

I had fun with those, not least when they asked me which key was next to the one at the bottom left of my keyboard.

I think the fact that both ladies swore at me profusely proved that not only were they not working for Microsoft, but that I had rumbled them and had wasted quite a lot of their time pretending to be a computing dunce!

Re: HMRC - Tax Refund

I want a 5 year old child again, if you have one you just hand them the phone.

Considering how germ laden most 5 year old kids are, there is an even bigger risk of getting a virus off the phone...

I always forward anything like this to the organisation concerned. HMRC confirmed that it was "phishing" and they always go after them.

Make that a less than 2 year old. A 5 year old would tell all.
