I've received 2 of these PM's, through Facebook Messenger, in the last week.

 

It includes a link (that I haven't clicked on).

I receive a lot of those "Is this you?" spams. Mostly trying to sell Medicare supplemental insurance policies.

The guys that actually call me are my cheap entertainment. I have several openers

Does this actually work for you?

Wow I'm sorry you couldn't find a legal job.

Wow, your country had a 2,000 year head start on us and they can't provide a legal job for a bilingual person like you.

 

This last one had a guy waste 20 minutes on the phone screaming at me that I was dumb. I pointed out I was retired making money sitting on my *** annoying him while he was not making any money talking to me. I finally asked if his supervisor was going to get mad and he hung up, my job was done.

When they ask for my Social security card or my Medicare number I tell them I have to find my wallet. It's interesting to see how long some will wait.

My phone number had previously belonged to a nice lady that used drugs and didn't pay back loans. Seven years later I still get some collection calls. I got one guy threatening lawsuits and police coming to my door. Now at this point it was kind of insulting because I really doubt Bernice and I had similar accents. I said police at my door, fine, I'm armed. I then asked are you really a lawyer? He said Yes. You passed the Bar? He said yes. I said, "Wow and all you can get is a job with a bottom feeder company like this?" He hung up.

Mike, half of the lawyers out there didn't graduate in the top half of their class. :)

Same applies to Doctors!  Think about it.
