    I got that before when I was selling one of the kids bikes. Then he rang back and said hed calmed down but was still adamant the bike I was selling was stolen from him. He sounded deranged. Got all worked up again. At this point it was getting ridiculous, Id say he was off his nut on something. I said woah woah woah, we can fix this. How he said? Heres how; fk off. And that was that.

    What a clusterfeck! If it was genuine, all the eejit had to do was arrange a viewing. Then he'd see it wasn't his car. Sounds like either a prank or an information gathering exercise. Either way, he wasn't interested in buying. Best to hang up!
    Beware of imitations; there's another lawyer out there calling himself "Lucanlaw!" So the writing on the wall may be a forgery!

    Rather than hanging up, you should have asked him, in a sultry voice, what he was wearing.

    I wish I had the presence of mind to be able to come up with stuff like this on the spot when necessary, haha!

    I have found (by accident) that a stunned silence can be converted into a victory. Wait maybe 15 seconds after he has petered out and totally used up all his vehemence and vitriol on you. Then say politely - "I'm terribly sorry but someone knocked over something in the next room and I had to put the phone down, would you mind repeating that?"

    Then say you will call him back. He won't have a number of course. Then ask him to phone back in 20 minutes as something has come up. When he phones back, say "Please can you hold for a minute". Leave the phone down somewhere and I don't know, go and watch Netflix or something.
