Simon Says Stamp DT - Tilda with wrapped heart

Good morning peeps,
I was so rude to a man on the phone yesterday, I hate the phone lol. We don't answer it very often as it's such an intrusion with surveys & sales calls etc, all my friends & family have a code to ring so that I answer or call my mobile, but I got fed up with it ringing so answered to a horrid con man trying to convince me he was from Microsoft & they had detected serious malware in my computer!!!! What a load of flipping rubbish, hubby was daft enough to follow instructions when they called before until I unplugged the phone & ended the call to stop him, what the con man on the phone does is instructs you to put the malware in your computer yourself & then tries to sell you a product to remove it!!!! Be warned peeps if you get a phone call like this Microsoft do not telephone people & tell them they have detected serious threats in your computer, it is a con so let off some steam & tell the caller where to go lol.

  8. Great card Mandy! How obnoxious are some people! The nerve they have. In The Netherlands we have a register where you can have your number registered on a list of people who don't want to be phoned by salesmen etc. Though this guy probably just phoned numbers he could think of. Great that you unplugged the phone! Hugs, Hanneke

    Love that gorgeous Tilda and the cool tree stamp too :)

  32. Oh this is so beautiful Mandy, such a sweet Tild.
    One of the disadvantages of beening at home all day is the cold calls, must remember to buy a whistle.

  33. Hi Mand, I can just imagine what you said to that man - well done! LOL!!!

    So annoying and such time wasting! as well as so dangerous as I am sure lots of people give out the information they need to hack their computers.
