Thread: Old scam has resurfaced...

    Old scam has resurfaced...

    I have a Mac computer.

    Today I got an automated call stating that "I MUST press #1 because my computer has serious issues and I must speak to a Microsoft Engineer immediately."

    Ummm...really????

    Duhhhhh.

    Don't fall for it.

    I pressed goodbye when I slammed the receiver down...

    I get calls from them about once weekly, always thick East Indian accents with English names. I hang up immediately.I do plan to one day tell the caller that I do not own a computer just to see what the response will be when I confound their script.

    You guys are no fun. I got one of these and asked him if it was the midget porn site I had just been too, no? Well I went to this site with guys having sex with sheep, if I like watching guys with male sheep does that make me gay? I kept the guy on the line for 10 minutes before he hung up.

    I've gotten a few of the Microsoft calls.

    My Yahoo email gets mail from "women" supposedly on Facebook looking for a good time.

    I love it when I get these calls since I have never, ever, owned a Microsoft computer...Apple for me since 1984. And Alan, I am a woman, and regularly get spam e-mails offering to remedy my ED!!!
