The swindler always gave you a call and said that your friend or relative got in car accident, now he is in first-aid, badly in need of money. Most of ppl will not believe it, but sometimes, there are always those who were cheated by this kind of phone fraud.

Analogously,have you ever answered some crank calls, annoying ad calls? Every day, all of us have too much work to do, too busy to waste even only several seconds. But like annoying flies, those spam calls always disturb our life from time to time.

So some clever ppl choose to reject strange calls, it is a good way. But for some sellers, they could not do that, coz they do not know whether it is their clients’ call, then answering ad calls become unavoidable.

I still received calls from the real estate agent to whom I gave my phone number a year ago.

Same here, if the caller is Chinese, I speak English, if the caller is a foreigner (usually working for the insurance companies or finance companies) I speak in French. And if the caller happens to speak French then I speak Chinese.

So far, so good.

Sometimes when it's a finance company and if I'm in a playful mood I would play with them and keep them on the phone for litterally hours. But I'm a jerk.

Yes, a lot of calls "do You want to make an investment?", "we are the biggest bank...", etc.
More frequent calls are usually affter the fairs when some of the "foreign business cards" are sold on the black market by some people, so since few years ago years I'm giving the card only when I talk about the possible business, not "let me send You an offer"...


But I somebody tried other scam, that I described in the separate thread:

If you have time someday, you should try to keep them on the line as long as possible.

I once explained to one of these guys I was very happy since I had a net worth of 15 million US$. I could hear him jump on his seat and he was squeaking like a little girl. I then told him I already had an investment with a 15% annual return and asked him if he could beat it. He went throught a lenghty explanation as to why their 2.5% investment were better than 15%.

After about an hour I told him "do you really think if I was worth 15 million US$ I would have 1 hour to spare in the middle of the afternoon on a tuesday ?" I told him that if he cannot get his sales pitch through in 15 minutes, he's not gonna do it in one hour... Hopefully he learned his lesson.

I once also got a date from one of these callers (a girl !)
