Most berserk wrong number

Postby tankee » Tue Jan 26, 2010 1:13 pm

what is the most berserk wrong number you have ever received?


Once, there were these IDD calls from China. A lady kept calling my mobile looking for her hubby that had came to Singapore to work. Apparently her hubby told her he had met someone else here and wanted a divorce.

Despite the repeated attempts I tried telling her that she had the wrong number, she kept insisting and mistaken me as her hubby and pleaded with me not to divorce her nor brush her off by pretending as someone else and crying over the phone.

To complicate matter further, I was supporting China office then and was making frequent trips there. The calls came when I was with my DW. Luckily my DW trusted me, else i would really :stupid: for nothing.

I had a few encounters but one that left indelible impression was this one when I was still single then.

Dialogue as follows:

Me: Hello
Stranger: Hello, May I speak to so and so please?
Me: Sorry, you've got the wrong number.
Stranger: Errr...sorry but what is the number I dialed?
Me: Sorry, whatever number you had dialed, it was the wrong number... *hangup*

*phone ring again*
Stranger: Hello, I think I got the wrong number right now
*?????????????*
Me: Yes, but it is still the wrong number, there is no such person.
Stranger: You speak well, can I call you sometime and talk to you?
Me: *shocked* No sorry, I don't know you and I have nothing to speak to you about.
Stranger: I am xxxxxxx. You really speak well, you don't sound Singaporean. (Bullshit!!!! I feel that I totally sound Singaporean)
Me: Still no, I am afraid I have to hang up now.
Stranger: No wait, what is your name?
Me: I am sorry, I am hanging up now. *hangup*

Guess what, this fellow continued to call back several times over a period of time and each time I picked up, he would continue to rattle on, sharing more and more about himself.... lidat also can??????? If others picked, he would hang up.

After a while, I had to find a solution so I intimidated him to get off my back. I spoke about all the nerdy stuff which he could not relate to and he realised he could not understand most of the things I said....so hilarious.

I hope my dd will not meet such absurd people next time.

I had another absurb one "calling from the ship...."(i.e. a sailor), I heard from friends they received similar calls during that period too... Gave me the creeps...

There was this irritating caller who spoke in accented PRC Mandarin...

Caller: This is For-you-too (or is it Too For You? Whatever...) fax service....blah blah blah..

Me: erm, what is that?

Caller: Are you Singaporean?

Me: Yes

Caller: Then how can you not to have heard of For-You-Too?

Me: huh? (I was like wtf...) What do you want from me?

Caller: We have this free promotion...blah blah

Me: I'm not interested.

Caller: How can you not be interested? It's free! How is it possible you are not interested in something free?

I just put down the phone immediately. Siao one, instead of trying to win me over to sell something to me, she has put me off. Really crazy person LOL

The one call that got me most worried was taken by my parents, when I'm not home. It was one of those, congratulations you've won 250,000 (can't remember the currency). My dad was free enough to entertain them...but lucky he's lucid to know that this is likely a scam....so all he did was try to convince them to send the money over first.

I call it si beh wu eng.... :P
