Over the last week I’ve had a couple of calls from strange numbers, both 19 digits and begining with a + sign, I just let them ring out.

I keep getting more and more texts from some local Democrat candidate (not that I care which party it comes from though) campaign place. I told them once to take me off their list. Got another one the next day. Sounds like lots of folks getting them. Reported to the FCC but I know it will mean little.

You have 28 hours after you open my letter for making the transaction.Bye.Dont forget about the ignominy."

My god I'm so scared everyone will see me thrashing my dick, Oh hold on I don't have a web cam. Maybe he needs the 580 $ (whatever that is) for typing lessons?
Ha Ha Ha is this the best they can do, great entertainment!
I got that spam mail too. Interestingly whoever sent that mail also knew an old password I used to use and quoted it in the mail.

Funny that, since UK laws were tightened up a couple of months ago all the spam call I get are from Europe and the usual Nigeria. This morning I had one from Germany the old "Your BT broadband is about to be cut off etc....." one (I'm with Sky), I get this one at least daily Ofcom are unable to stop it. For info the number was 02115295942 next time I won't put the phone down, jam the line and cost them loads.
Could this be a way of the EU getting some revenge over Brexit?
