Today I've received three calls. One purported to be from a local car dealership, one from Microsoft and one from some Australian firm. All three went something like this: "Our technical support reported that there have been two charges made on your Visa card, one for $400 and one for $650, and both look suspicious. If you didn't make these charges, dial one to speak to one of our representatives."

Don't fall for these calls: just hang up.

I've gotten dozens of calls from 'microsoft' advising me that there is a virus on my computer and that I need to pay them to help me to remove it.......by going to a web site they tell me to go to.

every now and then, I let them go on for a minute or two...then ask them, what kind of computer they think I have that has the problem. Surely they have all that information right there...... and if I'm really nasty that day.....whatever they say, I say nope, I've got an Apple....even though I don't....

Most of the callers seem to have an accent.....

I've received those too. I had a bit of fun on them by asking, "Did Apple buy Microsoft?"
