Default Playing with Cold Callers

I have a couple of lines that I use when I get scammers or cold callers calling me

My best answer is "He just died....TODAY". That makes the colder caller so awkward they just hang up

When I get Microsoft call me: I tell them I use Apple products only

Accident insurance callers call: I ask them which accident are they referring too? The one where I spilt milk on the floor?

My reply to accident claims callers : Yes, I did have an accident. A girl touched me inappropriately on public transport.

I do not pick up. Set some one-touch text reply like "not interested" etc.

This. Forget scammers, I never pick up calls where I don't recognize the number - if it's important they will leave a message and I can always return.

I get almost daily calls from recruiters - Few of them got my number when i was looking for jobs 4 years ago - they still call today and they know too much about me.. knows exactly what I want.. it's scary sometimes. VM sounds like my old gf or best buddy called or something.
Have 1 AFG vs BD ticket to give out
