More scam calls

This, according to the ID, from Bryan Russell in Miami. The person on the phone has the disconnect that sounds like they are from the other side of the world.

He says that my boss has called and wants to cancel our Online Yellow Pages listing and he needs to give me the confirmation number.

How this scam works, they give the person on the phone the confirmation number and then they use that and bill you 500 bucks. Looking at others online who have dealt with this group, if you refuse they threaten you with a 1200 dollar charge.

I messed with this one for awhile, and it ended up with him repeating everything I said. Kinda sad really, I expect better from such scammers.

Next time I think I may go completely psychotic on them. Tell them that the last time I got a call from this number, I woke up the next morning in a bathtub full of ice and my spleen was missing. Then ask the guy over and over what he has done with my spleen.

This was originally posted on Dreamwidth, after which it wandered out to various other sites. Feel free to reply where ever you want. I should still see it.
