Phone scam.
Just had a automated call from a "withheld" number message was about extending warranty on your domestic appliances "press 1 to extend press 5 to stop" only at the end of call did they say they were called ACD. Googled the name. Couldn't find a company called this, but is mentioned on a "who calls me" site this is a SCAM & if you press the numbers they are asking you to, you will be charged a massive call rate. Beware!

My latest....phone rings....hello.......hi, we`ve called about your accident......Oh great I said they said they would ring me back today......slight pause as they they think the`ve got a right one......can you give me the details.......I was driving down the road and didnt realise there was a travelling circus, I collided with the elephant van which overturned thereby letting one angry elephant out, he went off toward the local allotments...in the meantime two zebras escaped along with a gorilla and still havnt been found.

What happened then surprised me.......the woman actually asked what damage was done to my car!!!!!!!!!!! I tried not to laugh but said....what do you think .....an elephant sat on it. I then asked her did it matter whether it was african or indian......she actually said she didnt know.........at this point I just collapsed laughing and hung up

I'm sure it will be OK - I think they are fairly resourceful!
