Don't get mad, get even

And have fun at the same time.

Incoming spam text - "£2.452.87 has been allocated for your recent accident. Just fill in the form at and your money will be released to you"

Which, is of course, a load of old bollox.

So the best thing to do is fill in that form. I find the person injured is usually John Doe, or Michael Rodent, or Roland Rodent. They generally have had every bone in their body broken.

So there's some amusement to be had when Clearly A Spammer's Number calls my mobile.

Yes, I do have too much time on my hands But using to waste a spammer's time is fun. And, noticeably in the medium term, more effective than anything Ofcom or the ICO have done. Both spam texts and the incoming calls following are noticeably down.

And yes, the number is on the TPS list....
