Fun with telephones

Today I had some fun with a call from an unknown company, previously logged on my i-phone as an “ambulance chaser”. i.e. someone who has, possibly illegally, picked up information about an insurance claim.

“Ring – ring” “I-phone – ‘Ambulance Chaser'”
Me: “Hello”.
Them: “My name is…”
Me: ” You should be aware that all calls may be recorded for training purposes.”
Them. “My name is…”
Me. “Can you please provide me with your postcode for security purposes?”
Them: “Why?”
Me: “If you do not know your postcode, can you please give me your mother’s maiden name?”
Them: “What?”
Me: “If you do not know your postcode, can you please give me your mother’s maiden name?”
Them: Brrrrrrrrrr……

Success!
