Bye bye world I'm wait for the police to kick in the door and arrest me, The Tax man just phoned me up from 003 200 1475 as there is major fraud on my account and if i don't press one on the phone the police who are waiting for a signal will charge in and arrested me ... I didnt press one so the police are on the way.... still waiting. Not here yet ... ...whistling to myself very baldly......still not here ... they're probably looking for parking .. I've got bored now they'll have To come and arrest me after ive been to the pictures..
Just because someone is trying to con out of my money by stealing my phone line doesn't make it unworthy of a scribble, in fact anything out of the ordinary will definitely make it into my visual diarys

I have my batteries  fully charged in case I need to do a runner  but it's  safe to say there will be no follow up by the police. It was just another conman

They are very annoying  but I just say i can hear something on the cooker boiling over and tell them to hang  o. And waste their time as well as stop them phoning so.eone else.

I posted this elsewhere and one of the people were completely  unaware of this type of scam and said if they hadn't seen the post that they may have fallen for it themselves.

I have done that Paul.   I have also pretended to be taken in but with a sting in the tail.   I can imagine how upsetting it must be to believe such rubbish.  I was once asked that if I gave them my password, bank details etc., they (Microsoft) would fix my computer.

There was something on tv where a copper who dealt with fraud daily in his job was taken in and lost a lot of money and as he said he always considered himself bevy savvy in this sort of thing .

At one time i fixed a lots of computers  and in the end I gave up because  the same people would come back weekly with the same thing .."I got a message saying I had viruses and it asked do I want them cleared so i hit yes" i head this almost every day .

Every time i asked if the virus protection I'd  installed had came up with the warning and the answer was always "no"

In the end it was getting harder and harder to clear with newer viruses

 I was ill and couldn't  concentrate and kept falling asleep were I'd always been a very bad insomniacs,  so I couldn't  do them for a while and then it turned out that I had sleep apnea  i think  that all those time my body was starve  of oxygen  have had an effect because  i struggle with things i once could do   so i told everyone that i couldnt  do  computers now , its not as bad as i made out but i just got fed up with People  not following advice all the time

Hi Paul.   My Dad used to mend clocks and watches as a hobby and the world and his wife used to come.  He was very good at what he did and rarely got it wrong.  However, in one particular case this fellow kept bringing his watch back and saying it had stopped - AGAIN.   Dad wore it to work so did I and also my Mum and it kept perfect time.  The fellow came to collect it and Dad asked him what he did for a living.  Oh he said.  I use a pneumatic drill to dig up the roads.   Do you wear the watch to work  Oh Yes.  Every day.   Well that it your problem.  Take it off and don't wear it when your are working.   It was before the days of shock proof etc.,   He did have to grace to come back and tell Dad he had stopped wearing it to work and it is keeping time.  I made most of my own clothes and when folk found I did this they used to ask me to make clothes for them.   I did not really like doing it as I have to work in the kitchen and I was always worried in case I spilled something on the fabric.  Anyhow one day a lady came with a bit of cloth and a request that I make her a skirt.  She had no pattern and thought I could just cut it out and sew it up and did not want to pay for a pattern.  If I wanted a pattern then I could buy it.  She got short shrift I can tell you.  She went out the door quicker than she came in.  Damned cheek of the woman.

I worked with someone  who did watch repairs, he did someones watch and gave it a massive clear as it was completely bunged up, a week later it came back as not working  when he took the back of it he found it had engine oil in it. The person had taken the back of the watch and decided it looked dry  and gave it a squirt from his oil can
