My parents got a strange phone call yesterday. Their computer has been down for over a week, from what we thought was a dead battery (new one arrived from Amazon yesterday coincidentally). My mother said the call went something like this. "Hello, this is so-and-so from [garbled]. We noticed you haven't been using your computer in over a week. Are you having trouble? Yes, the batter is dead. No it's not, it should be fixed now. Go ahead and turn on your computer and it should be fixed. Who is this? -hangup." Of course they turned it on and it started working on what we thought was a dead battery! Only thing is the browser loaded to something about:
Anyways, what in the world??? How would someone know that her computer was down for a week and why would they call. I've been in tech for a while, but this one takes the cake. Any ideas/experiences/suggestions? Thanks.
