Beware computer caller
On the evening of July 21, I received a phone call from a man with an East Indian accent who didn't ask for anyone by name. He just said, "Hello, my name is Edward. I'm calling about your computer."
I promptly said, "I don't have a computer. What number were you calling? Who were you calling?"
There was a short silence, then a hang up.
Approximately 5:30 p.m. on July 23, I received another call from a man with an East Indian accent, only this time he asked for me by name, with a "Hello, how are you? I'm calling about your computer."
This time I decided to play along and said, "Yes, what about it?"
He was hard to understand, but he proceeded to tell me that while I was online, my computer downloaded something from the Internet and put a glitch in the Internet and I needed to undo it from my end.
I promptly asked him, "How do you think that happened since I don't own a computer and how did you get my name."
He followed with "You don't own a computer?"
I yelled back, "No" and again there was a speedy hang up.
He was ready to tell me how I could go onto the computer and fix the problem, but I actually am un-computerized. However, folks out there who are, need to be warned of a new scam out there. My caller ID read "Unknown name 208-899-7526."
