Somehow my home phone number must have dropped off the no call list. A few days ago I got a call from some type of credit solutions company. My spidey sense said scam so I just started answering questions without giving up any important info. Basically the conversation was headed towards needing bank account and credit card info so they could help me with a (non-existent) credit issue. When I finally asked what credit card company or entity he worked for I got a dial tone for an answer. Just a few minutes ago I answered a call from Vertex. Apparently, this guy from Ickyackyistan was able to determine my computer had a virus and did I want help with it. The spidey sense kicks in again so I start answering questions. How old is my computer .... oh about 15 years. Is it slow and acting weird ..... well ya, it's 15 years old. Could I please go turn it on ..... well no. Why .... because I am in the bathroom. Can I please move to the computer ..... no I'm in the middle of something. What am I in the middle of ..... uh, I'm taking a dump. So when can I call you back .... DON'T. Then I got the dial tone treatment again. Keep your spidey sense turned on! If you get an unsolicited call it's a scam. Mess with the caller but don't tell them anything.
