Got a robo-call today claiming to be from Amazon Prime

"Your Amazon Prime account will be automatically renewed at a cost of $39.95. I f you don't wish to renew press 1."

I pressed one. Told the guy I don't have an Amazon Prime account and I've never even once in m,y life shopped Amazon.

He said they must have made a mistake and If I would just give him my credit card number they would be able to sort it out.

I told him to F**K Off and hung up.

You should have given him some random numbers that spelled “Hey Fuck Off Asshat”...

Wow. I got one today, too. Real bad robo pronunciation. Couldn’t understand most of it.

I believe the correct term is "scammers." No nation or race has a monopoly on scamming. It's an equal opportunity crime.

If your saying all scammers matter I'm going to have to loot the local Best Buy in protest.
I want a bigger TV and one of those thousand dollar phones I can't afford.

I don't own either of those and haven't the slightest desire to own either of those.
