Anyone get a scam call from someone with an Indian or Pakistani accent (forgive me if I have the wrong country..don't know for sure)? The person starts telling you there is a problem with your computer and he needs info.

I got this call....and I am certain they will never call my home again.
Robert Norgard February 11, 2014 at 12:59 PM
My calls never get that far because if I don't know the phone no. on my caller ID, I don't pickup the phone. If it is something important enough they will call again.

Has anybody received a similar car from Gustavo Gus at Los Pollos Hermanos? I can certify that this is a complete fabrication.

Mr. Norgard, I guess that is why you never take my calls.
Robert Norgard February 16, 2014 at 04:53 PM
What calls are you talking about? If I don't know a phone no. or person calling I have never answered that type of call. Why would you be calling in the first place?
Heizenburg February 19, 2014 at 06:27 PM
I used to be like that with answering the door. One day I heard a consistent knocking, went on for a few minutes. I didn't care I wasn't answering. After the knocking subsided my curiosity got the best of me, so I peeked out the window. You guessed it it was Ed McMahon getting back in the publishers clearing house van. He folded up that giant check and moved along, never to come back again. đź“ž
