Another cold caller

This one pretended to be doing a survey. He asked for me by name, yes that's me. And he asked me to confirm my  address, so I gave him the address of a recent spammer, and we spent a while spelling out the post code. Then we got down to the meat of it. "Are in you one of the following age groups, 18-25, 26-35, 36-45, 46-55, 56-65, over 65"?

"No," I replied.

So he tried again. "No." So then he tried "Are you over 65?" "No." "Are you 56 to 65?" "No" and this went on for a short while, until he said, "Well how old are you?" "Seventeen," I lied. "Seventy?" He said. "No, seventeen," I said.

And he hung up.

Now that we can take our pension pots and put it into any unwise scheme we want, I'm expecting loads of cold calls on that.


  1. You have a PENSION SCHEME!!!

  2. Cold callers don't know if I've had an accident in the last three years, don't know if I've been mis-sold PPI, and don't know whether I have a pension or not. They call anyway.
