10. Rickroll them over the phone.

9. Tell the caller that they make you feel like dancin’ every time they call, then hang up.

8. Ask the caller if he or she would like to take a survey. 

7. When the collector tried to increase your payment amount, tell him or her you will go double or nothing, depending on whether or not you win the lottery jackpot.

5. Tell them you cannot pay because you just got butt implants and they were really expensive.

4. Ask them if they accept pennies.

3. Reply as if you were reading from a script.

2. Play a commercial for a local car dealer or furniture store over the phone.

1. Tell them you will pay in full, then hang up right before they go to collect your payment information.
