They also claimed to be from Microsoft. This is the 4th call I've received from them. The last time they actually said they were caling about THE problem with "Wendell's computer". Amazingly, that's the name of the father of my 2 youngest children (now adults) who passed away in 2003. This time, I kept repeating "WENDELL?" to make sure they were saying his name and not one of his children whose name ends with "endell", just starts with a different letter. I then told them he doesn't have a computer because he died in 2003 and the funeral home said there wasn't good reception underground where he is buried. The first time they called about a problem with THE computer, I asked which computer and they said THE computer over and over and I kept repeating we have 5 and also kept asking what exactly is the problem. They knew my husband's name and kept saying the problem he called about and I finally said he only uses one of the 5 and if it had a problem, I'd know because we tell each other our deepest, darkest computer secrets (LOL) and I slammed the phone down. a lot of stress in my life right now and I don't need their added BS. Today, I just said "Computer? I don't have a computer" and the guy hung up on me. I called the number and it said Microtel or something similar to the hotel name. Said stay on line because mailbox full and someone would answer , heard that twice before a recording said "Goodbye". I'm normally nice but when they call me again, and it's always an Indian sounding accent. they are going to think I'm playing along and then I'm going to tell them where they can get off the planet.

This guy called and said he was from Microsoft, but he wanted me to wire money to Italy and make it out to Aldea Karolyn not Microsoft he said that my computer is going to crash and they keep getting signals that we have viruses real bad. I wouldn't pay and now he calls everyday 6 times or more we just don't answer.
