A very pleasant lady phoned me today from HD Technology, which, she said, has Microsoft approval, to tell me that my PC has issues and was " sending out information, some of which is personal".

I asked her who she was and where she was and she replied that she was "at the HD Server." I told her that I did not require any of her services, said "goodbye" and hung up. Didn't bother to find out how much money I would have to send to have my issues put right.

Anyone else heard of this lot? Checked on the net but didn't find anything.

I'm jolly rude to cold callers :)

I usually tell them to go forth and multiply. Some of the more spirited callers return the compliment :lol:

Up against the wall with the lot of them :mad:

Latest one I been getting is an email advising me of a recent BACS payment with a file attached. The attached file, surprise surprise, has an *.exe extension :rolleyes:

Only reason I opened the first email (not the attachment) is because I am actually expecting several BACS payments. Uncanny foresight on behalf of the crooks or mere coincidence? Makes me wonder sometimes.

Pal of mine , a while back, had a call telling him his computer had problems. He listened for a while about making sure he contacted them for more advice and then calmly told them that he doesn't own a computer. And the truth is that he really doesn't.

He said that the caller was speechless and eventually hung up. :D
