Haven't had this one before, automated voice saying it's a message from my internet provider and that my internet will be disconnected within the next 24 hrs because of illegal activity, please press 1 to speak to an executive
Needless to say, I hung up.
Having looked it up it's been doing the rounds for a long time, you would think in this day and age something could be done about them

I Get Them All Thee Time sometimes up to 3 times An Hour , They must ring me for the abuse they get but its never the same number or even city it seems to be computer generated and it doesn't matter if you're ex directory, My Favourite Reply is when they do actually speak and its not a recording the voices are always Asian sounding I simply ask Can They Speak In English no matter what they reply I ask again for English ,and Again until they hang up

They used to call and tell me that Windows was insecure. I always told them we'd just had double-glazing fitted, so our windows were perfectly secure.

I think they've got me marked down as a barmy geriatric, so they don't bother now.
