From my guest blogger, the "Tree Hugger":
I got a phone call moments ago from "Windows support" saying they had
noticed malicious software being down-loaded into my computer.
It was a woman with a foreign accent. I asked for a phone number where I could phone them back. She did give me an 800 number.
When I said, "Gee, that's funny. We don't have a Windows operating system," she hung up immediately.
I looked up the 800 number she had given me. It apparently belongs to a Christian bookstore in Vancouver, British Columbia. It's probably not the number she was calling from.
I'm hoping this note may spare someone from falling for a gimmick like this.
