I got this same call a while back. I let the guy go through his song and dance and then told him, "You are a scammer and I do not deal with scammers." and hung up. Haven't heard a thing since.

You'll have better luck selling that bridge you own on Craigslist or TOTV "Items for Sale"
Please provide a picture. Everyone is curious as to how much did you pay for it? Hope you're able to get your money back, good luck.

Default Will have to develop a firm no thank you stare.

I have gotten spoiled as solicitation door to door in our town requires a permit and is only issued to legit charities and handed out to school kids who belong to organizations like the scouts. All others can and are arrested.
When I get down there I will have to develop a firm no thank you stare.
As an unincorporated area you can't pass these kind of rules I guess.

Anyone had this same experience?
Yes. It was a guy and he was a charmer. He worked our neighborhood a couple of weeks ago. We said our freezer was full and he offered to come in and rearrange it so we could fit more in. I then turned him down in a manner he understood. I followed him out and was surprised to find no vehicle in sight. I was looking for a registration number. I then called Neighborhood Watch and they were familiar with this scam and said they would send someone out.

Also, in the past few months, I have received a number of calls from the "Microsoft tech". I stay on long enough for them to know i am fully aware of their scam.

I got the call supposedly from Windows also. The same day I received an email stating that my BankAmerica account was temporarily suspended because someone was trying to log in too many times incorrectly. I was asked to follow their link and give them my correct info. Instead I called BankAmerica and they said to forward it to their fraud dept. They get that a lot...my first clue was a misspelled word. And of course, they would never ask for that kind of information in an email. No correct card number, etc. I wonder how many unsuspecting people do get taken in by this stuff???
