Phone call from "The Zurich Bank"

Dear all,

i have just relocated back to the UK - and boy has it been stressful, so imagine my great joy on Friday, when I received a phone call from "The Bank of Zurich"

As I have said, my concentration was elsewhere - so as said , "what? The ZKB?" to which he said yes ....

He proceeded to tell me about moving all the money I had in my current account to a higher interest one .....
I told him I had better things to do today - so let me think about it.

I rang off - and the cogs began to whir !! And the wit rang again ... and asked me for which account number I was going to transfer money out of ....
So if you get a phone call from 0041449399177 - tell them to go shove it where the sun doesn't shine ....

They did sound of similar ilk. He hung up when I said "why would you need to know my account numbers ?"

If he calls again, tell him you have to keep that account for the money transfers from Nigeria.
