Was cooking dinner and dividing my attention between the News and the pots when the phone rang. When I heard "I am calling in regards to your computer..." all that came to mind was "Aww, hell, f**k off, you idiot!"

They did hang up rather fast.

:D :D :D that is what happened to me on Sunday night also. To tired to deal with them it was "F*** off you A**H***" from me.
Next time I am going to ask them what they tell their mother what they do for a job and if the truth makes her proud.[xx(]

I get lots of missed calls from unknown numbers so I am assuming my number is being dialed fairly regularly by their autodailer

I bet the telephone fundraisers for legitimate organisations get short shrift from more people now that we're so regularly phoned by the ratbags.

My first were only in the last two weeks - the benefits of two surnames in the book, so it's not quite so simple to ask for the right name?

I get the occasional targeted spam email, which seems to relate to my email address appearing on the contractor listing on the Fencing Contractors Association website. Got this one today ...
