I have invented a new game
« on: October 14, 2017, 20:36:47 CDT »
Once upon a time, all my friends were getting those recorded messages from scammers saying that they owed the Australian Taxation Office money and that there was a warrant out for their arrest unless they paid up. Then one day, I got the recorded message and I thought, wow, I've finally arrived. I'm with the in crowd now.

Then I thought, really, I should have a list, like birdwatchers, so I can mark off all the scams that have been tried on me.

Then I thought, no, I should have some fun with this.

So I invented Scam Bingo.

You print out your Scam Bingo card (this one lists Australian scams so you might want to adapt it for your local region) then when you get the calls, e-mails, letters, text messages etc, you mark them off on your card. When you take that call that allows you to complete a line horizontally, vertically or diagonally, you jump up, yell, "BINGO!" down the line at the bewildered scammer, then hang up.

Never trust an atom.
They make up everything.
