    My current favorite (and by favorite I mean I wish I could set them on fire with the power of my mind) telephone scam is the one where the guy calls up and says he’s in a network ops center in California, and he’s calling because they’ve received a distress call from your computer.  They get a bit belligerent if your response is a derisive snort and words to the effect of, “Yeah, right.  How’s the weather in Bangalore today?”

    It was lucky that I was home 2 weeks ago as I caught my elderly mother giving her bank account number and info to  a scammer. I had to go to the bank and cancel her account and it has been a pain in the butt since. She is upset, but I really hope she learned a lesson and is not going to do that again. She was lucky that they did not clean out her account.

    I do what a friend suggested — press and hold “3” on my phone keypad and it, apparently, emits a high-pitched sound that is very unpleasant on the ears … I sure hope so!!
