    I've got them to hang up on me twice now. I get bored so don't mind messing around with them for a bit..lol

    My 2nd time dealing with them-

    They told us that someone has been illegally downloading our internet & they wanted to let us know and they have this great program to stop it from happening.
    I replied "We haven't had the internet for about a year"
    They then told me how they detected bugs in our computer & the program will clear them out.
    I then asked how they got their information as it was obviously incorrect.

    She then told me it was just a random call to customers.... I replied - then how did you know someone was illegally downloading our internet?!? *Beep..Beep..Beep*

    You do need to get the word out there though as they did call my mum who didn't realise the only person who will call you about illegal downloads is your internet provider & they will email you.

    We've been gettting lots of those calls here in Canberra too. I work in an IT related area and a few of my colleagues enjoy playing games with them too. I cannot be bothered though.

    My standard response to ALL of those random calls is: give me a URL and I will read the info on your webpage. And I will repeat this until they hang up.

    I usually hang up before the call even gets connected.
    You can always tell it's a telemarketer on the line because it takes about 5 seconds for the call to connect. If i don't get a response as soon as i say hello, i hang up.

    The "sorry i'm busy, give me your personal number and i'll call you back just as YOU sit down to eat dinner with your family" always seems to work.

    I had a guy phone 2 weeks ago from "windows". I told him to at least get the company right when scamming... it's Microsoft. I also said, I have virus wear and it works fine. If I get any problems I have a mate who will fix it for me.
    The same day the guy phoned my father in law.. unfortunately he was sucked in
