    So yesterday I was just doing my business at home when I got a call from my "bank", it said that my account was in danger of getting hacked and that I needed to transfer my money to a different account, they asked me for my name and surname so I gave them both my name and surname because what harm could they possibly do right? Then they asked me for my account number and as soon as they asked that I realized it was a scam but I wasn't going to hang up on the *****, I proceeded into playing dumb and just gave random numbers as my account number, they then asked for my PIN and I pretended to have lost my pin, this whole conversation kept on going for over an hour until in the end I told the scammer to **** off and suck my ****, the scammer then went into full rage mode saying he will **** my mum blah blah.... and then he hung up.

    I am so glad I wasted these *****'s time so they would have less time and money to scam somebody else. Did you ever receive a call from a scammer, if so how did you react?

    Lol, but you also wasted an hour of your own time (still funny though)
    I receive a few, but just end the call

    I want to rep you, but I have had calls from different numbers, but I never received them because am not at home.

    I honestly wasn't doing much at the time, was on the sofa just looking at my laptop so I decided to entertain myself by wasting their time in a conversation

    Happens a lot, just ignore & block the number but if you're curious, type the phone number into the "who called me" website which will usually say if its a scam or a weird call.
