SCAM ALERT 1: I recieved a phone call by a pakistani yesterday telling me that my computer had a virus, he said he was from microsoft and asked me to switch my computer on and he would run through the problem with me. Needless to say I told him to f**k Off and get a real job you thieving lazy f**k. I can only presume he may have been after getting into my network or something. Perhaps he was outside on a laptop or something I dont know what exactly he was upto but he just tried to keep

    it's a general slang term aimed at all asians, so yes could be offensive. There's no way of knowing if that individual was pakistani. they could have said 'asian' in that statement and it would have read in exactly the same way.

    you couldn't mistake a scotsman from being from any other country!

    You can call me racist if you want I am just stating the facts 9 times out of 10 you can guarantee if there is a scam going on its always a foreigner of some sort that's in the middle of it. So cut the political bullshit out of the equation and lets get on with the point of interest here. How not to get scammed. Sorry rant over
