Has anybody had any calls from 0000000000 lately? This number appears quite often trying to call us and I wonder what they are up to.
Trying to persuade you that they're Microsoft and you have a problem with your computer. Usually Indian from the sounds of it. When they try to start their blurb I just say, no you're not, thank you and goodbye.

Re: Aggressive telemarketing and false pretences

I speak german fluently, so it took me about 3 years to realize that you need ONLY say "sorry, I don't speak german" (make sure you say it english, obviously but not so obvious to some!) and 99% of the time they wont make the effort to try to sell you their crap in English, but they will hang up. Works every time
