Demand i turn on my tv


Trigger Mike

Recommended Posts

I got a spam call and tge foreigner said he was from my satellite TV company and said "is your TV on?"  

 

At the time I was watching TV.  I asked which company are you from?

 

He stressed in a commanding tone to "turn my TV on".  

 

I replied,  " I need you to speak English and leave me alone"

 

It got me to wondering what would happen if I had told him my TV is on.  Would he be able to hack into my internet connection somehow?

 

Why couldn't he tell it was already on?

I was visiting with my favorite FFL transfer guy and he told that his smart TV told his smart cooking range to turn on the oven and set to some temperature.   There was a cooking show on and the range was responding to the voice commands.

You should have asked him if he was calling from a cell phone, if he answered yes then you tell him to shove it up his %$#

He is looking for you to say "Yes"
He will record this, and use it as "proof" that you opted-in to his scam program.

When you get a scammer on the phone...
SAY NOTHING and REMAIN SILENT until you hang up.
