I've never tried that one max but it should work.

What I usually do is tell the caller to tell me about the product and then I ask endless questions about it and then I tell him I'm very interested in it and ask him to explain it all again.

When he's through with that, I tell him to explain it to my wife and I pause like I'm handing her the phone and then I start speaking in my extremely loud Queen of England voice and ask him who he is and what the hell he wants and when he answers me I pretend to be hard of hearing and keep shouting "WHAT? WHAT! WHAT?" until he hangs up.

  i've have done something like this,years ago a unlucky caller had me ans. the phone,

when i was bored & had nothing to do after 40 min.,asked why you don't give up,he said we are not allowed,

come to find out they are not allowed to give up if you don't hang up on them.

    This guy is wanting us try to figure out a method for this game it has 2 draws that need tracking ??? I got the same from him !!!

    Why not response with an estimate of what he has to pay up for you time just trying to figure out a system even if it's not successful.

      Whenever you receive something of this nature you should always click on the "Report Spam or Abuse" button at the top of the message so Todd knows what's going on. It seems that any time you see "Nigeria" and "lottery" in the same sentence it's a scam. 

      Thats   True   Brenda

       

      They   are  also  in  many   other   hobby's   also.............  collecting   and  selling  and  buying  classic  amusement  games  like  Pinball   , etc.   they  are  really  bad........except  most   people   in  that  hobby  are  on  to  them  also  these   days 

       

      They  like  to  prey  on  new  members   in   many   differant   hobby's

        I haven't heard back yet.

          Oh this is not a scam. The nigerian lotto offers great prizes like witchcraft for dummies books, instant heat bricks of cow dung, and ready to eat shish kabob scorpions. Its very popular. I would love to get one of those texts.

            Good        Strategy        Ridge

             

             

            The  way  I  usually  get  rid  of  them...........is  I  act  like  I  am  interested

             

            Then  when  they start into their sales pitch  ,     I  lay  the   phone  down  and  walk  away

             

            They  usually  talk  for  quite  awhile.........until  they  realize  their  is  no one on the other  end

             

            Then  I  go  back  later  and  hang  the  phone  up   after  they   are   gone

             

            They   waste    their   time     and    money   that    way

             

            And   I    aint   never  heard   back   from   one   of   them   yet      Thumbs Up
