We've been on the receiving end of a flurry of strange calls lately.
Yesterday, the phone rang. It was obviously a call center. You could hear the voices in the background, including a heavily accented voice that was screaming like crazy at someone. "I don't care..." the bellow went.
A little surprised, I said, "Hello?!!"
And a heavily accented voice (think Jamaica, or the like) came on. He politely said, "May I speak to Timothy please."
I said, "No."
He wasn't prepared for that answer. He hesitated.
I said "We don't wish to speak to scammers."
Long pause. Polite 'click'.
I hope the person who was being screamed at found the wherewithall to hang up the phone.
