Thanks to the HiYa app I know exactly when Credit Card Services is calling to scam me.

{Hehe I answer anyway}

Me: Hey
Caller: I see you pressed one to get the lower interest
Me: Nah, I pressed 5 to order a cappuccino
Caller: Sir, we are here to save you thousands on your interest, all I need is your credit card information
Me: Oh, so no cappuccino then?
Caller: Can you give me your credit card information
Me: Yes, which one
Caller: The card with the highest balance
Me: Well do you want the one with the highest balance or the one with the highest interest
Caller: Just give me the card number
Me: Aren’t we a tad rude
Caller: Sir, this process would go so much smoother if you cooperated
Me: ah yes, it’s my fault is it?
Caller: Sir, I’m trying to be patient with you
Me: Well, you’re failing at it
Caller: Do you want the lower interest rate or not
Me: I really want a cappuccino – can you help me with that?
Caller: Sir you are wasting my time.
Me: time is relative…for you it might be a waste, for me it’s providing much entertainment
Caller: Sir just please read off the card numbers
Me: Where are you located
Caller: New York
Me: Where in New York
Caller: New York City
Me: Whats the street address
Caller: Sir why all the questions
Me: Because I don’t give out my digits to every caller who says they can help me, I need to know this isn’t a scam
Caller: I assure you Sir, your card numbers are only used to pull up your information and give you the best deal.
Me: Yes, but all that information should already be at your disposal
Caller: Sir we represent all the banks
Me: I dont use a bank…I use a credit union
Caller: All the banks we do
Me: You said your calling from New York, so why does your number appearing on my caller ID say Tennessee
Caller: we route our calls through call centers all over
Me: even Pakistan?
Caller: Yes
Me: Gotcha

Caller hung up.
