    where do they get the info from/ most i get are either indian or from packistan, threatening me with jail for tax evaision, or saying they are from British Telecom offering a discount or telling me my line will be cut within 24 hours, another scam is the microsoft internet breach, I get at least 2 a day, the best recent one was a guy telling me my Sky insurance was due I pointed out that in the 20 years I have had sky I have never paid any insurance, so I asked what the price of cover would be £ 80 .00 for 3 years cover, so i told him i could upgrade to sky Q for £ 30 quid if it did break down......he hung up.

    They probably get no info, they just call each Person in the Directory...

    In fact some Joker called my about my Windows, when I don't have Windows at home… confronted with that Information he just disconnected.

    I got a tax evasion phone call.
    He said the cops were coming unless I paid.
    Apparently I owed taxes from the last 5 years.
    I told him I would beat that in court because I just spent the last 8 years in prison.
    He hung up. Hasn't called back either. 😊

    I run, about 5km a day, but only in "good" weather and lately, much to my body's relief, the weather hasn't been very good....for running.

    They just know you. They all know you. They tell your story to their children as a bedtime story. They talk about you around the campfire. Your story is a Bollywood favorite. They all want to talk to you. They want to name their children after you.

    You are legend.
