When i see a weird number i always use a line like..
Central Intelligent Agency, your covert sp number please.
or whatever pops into my mind first.
I had a friend who worked at NATO HQ in Brussels. To call him from the States I had to go through the State Dept operators in D.C. I always
expected them to ask me for some form of ID or code word to put the call through but no! They just connected the call without hesitation. Shows how
easy 'social engineering' would be if you knew the right words or names to ask for.
Sorry, completely off topic.
I've been polled frequently I think because we have a very old landline here; the number dates back to the 70s. Don't know which firms they were but
both of us just shout back 'NONE OF THE ABOVE, ^*%$#)*^^&!!' and then hang up.
Late last night there was one of those 'your computer needs to be fixed calls' from godknowswhere. My 100 year old buddy shouted at them 'WHAT MAKES
YOU THINK I HAVE A COMPUTER???!!!' Had to laugh.
