Pris got a call today from someone calling themselves PC Microsoft out of Cananda. They told here that here computer was sending error messages and that it would crash before tomorrow morning. She told them where they could go and hung up. I guess I'll know for sure tomorrow morning.

Those so-called Microsoft Representatives have been pulling that scam for almost a year now. Sometimes it is a Cdn number - Southern BC and other times it is a US number - Washington ... Kinda interesting that they can tell you that you have a virus on your computer but then they ask you for your IP and password to logon ..... :roll: :lol:

They called, asking for the wife by first name. I did not pick up, creepy to say the least. Googled the number, NOTHING good to say!
