What on earth? This is Switzerland. Now, where did I sign up recently giving my home phone number?

  1. don’t think bad, babe, you (and your phone number) are just famous ๐Ÿ˜‰

    maybe the caller had caught a glimpse of you in Netizen 2?

  2. You didn’t. This has been going on in Denmark for months now. American spammers who try to get you to give them your creditcard.

    Some of these spammers have problems with their phonesystems though. If their ‘salesperson’ disconnects you, they don’t disconnect your line, so you just hang around their system. That way you can listen in on the next calls, only hearing the salesperson though. So far two of my friends have tried this, listening to these spammers trying to trick other people for hours.

  4. I got the same call a few minutes ago…

    what would have happened if I had pressed the 9 as I was asked to do? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I don’t know they have much success with that story here in Switzerland, as most people will just not understand what it is about ๐Ÿ™‚
