      It has begun.

      Just received a robo call from someone reminding me that Windows 7 has reached the end of its life as an operating system, the need to move to Windows 10, and offering to assist with my transition.

      All they wanted was to be able to log into my computer and make some adjustments!

      Couldn’t possibly be MSFT as they don’t phone anyone! my advice is just hang up
      Mind you, given tactics employed by the GWX Campaign..nothing would surprise me /sarcasm 🙂

        my advice is just hang up

        … or get caller ID and never answer bogus calls to begin with. Then block ‘em. The world has gone totally nuts.

      There have been warnings on the news lately ( in the U.S. in the last couple of days) about these scams…that’s all they are. The callers attempt to both access your computer and steal personal account info under the guise of having you pay for their services.

    Please follow the -Lounge Rules- no personal attacks, no swearing, and politics/religion are relegated to the Rants forum.
