So i got a call from +868712249705 recently. Forgetting that I’m overseas (and thus paying roaming charges), I instinctively answered the phone and lo and behold, a Chinese started speaking on the other line. I’ve been getting quite a lot of this crap lately (on my Singapore line), so I just said “What? Sorry? Can you speak English?” and hung up.
On retrospect, I think that was being too kind, that idiot probably wasted nearly a dollar of my calltime.
In the future, I’ll just keep in mind to ignore all calls from +86 (China) numbers, and to feign inability to understand Mandarin should I accidentally pick up any such call, especially with so many scams floating around.
Hope I stop getting so many scammy calls, I’d hate to change my phone number. Have had it for seven years now, after all.
