CAN YOU BELIEVE IT: Well nothing strange about that but I received a telephone call last week from America telling me I had a virus (well I know I might have plenty of viruses) but this Indian gentleman informed me he could eradicate for $150 my computer virus and pay by credit card. Okay ! He had my telephone number and correct address ,said they were registered window technicians so entitled to trace my well being. I asked him was he a very wealthy man to be able to telephone me from USA. He replied no. Just warning people to be aware and no I don’t have in my possession a computer. Can you beat that for modern technology.
