    Default Beware of this no.

    65930474

    I just received a call from this no minutes ago. Telling me cny approaching and I was chosen to receive free gift. Asked me go down tmr.

    Bull ****. I told her to pass on the gift to someone. Asked me to recommend friends. No way.

    So beware of these sort of spam.

    The speaker will say cny coming and free gift for you.

    Be warned!

    I like this type of calls.

    There was once a call from a XMM from a credit card company, told me that if I signed the credit card, I will be given 5k of credits to spend, bla bla...restaurant got discount...

    I listen patiently to her... then when we reach to the end, she asked me,

    Credit Card Company: "Sir, may I know how old are you ?"

    Me: "I'm 15 years old this year.. "

    Credit Card Company: "oh.. so sorry, the minimum age requirement is 18"

    Me: "Oh nevermind, I guess I've wasted 2 hours of your time.."

    Credit Card Company: "Hang down the phone"

    did she ask for your name initially? she should know if different from your dad's..
    i'm not that patient la.. if somebody call me to offer a deal, i will just tell them thank you but i'm not interested. if they insist, i will just repeat myself. if they become pushy then i just hang up..

    They will never ask the age first. I last time kena same. Call say get free gift must come n collect. I ask if can send to my house, she said cannot. Must come n take. then I ask which address. Then she ask what is my age. I said 17, she said I too young. Can ask Father or Brother come n take. I reply "Never mind la, I give that gift to u. U use" Then I hang up.

    I kanna a timeshare call asking me to buy holiday packages and say if I go down, I'll get some free gifts. I asked if I can bring a friend along, the caller say cannot cos only for exclusive invited guests. Then I listen for a while and he told me just come down, don't have to buy anything so I say I will only bring my driving license since they need an identification.
    In the end I told him that I'm bankrupt and unemployed. Even if they offer me a free holiday, I can't leave the country. I told him to give the free gifts to other exclusive customers.
