Phone Calls Concerning My Computer

Published:

In the last week, I have received 3 or 4 phones, telling my computer is not working right. Does anyone else receive these type phone calls?

Nope. Next time tell them their phone isn't working right.

Hey Bob,

There seems to be a bunch of these types of scams going on in FL. I've seen it reported on the local tv news.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the link. When they start their routine, I scream into the phone, "you are a bunch of scum", trying to rip people off. It makes me hot and not in a good way.

I have not received any.
I am very cautious about anyone having access to my computer. Not even local geeks. I would rather destroy my computer. I have scrapped a couple computers and I disassembled them and destroyed all interior workings.

Yes, I received this same call a week or two ago!! I've wondered the same thing as to if anyone else had received this call. This guy sounded like a typical scamming moron, and I just hung up on him. How in the hell would this moron know anything about my personal computer?? I am my own personal computer expert, and can fix anything that goes wrong with it, period!!
