  1. That is interesting… Fortunately I am very suspect of this type of thing.. I once had a call supposedly from Microsoft support saying there was something wrong with my computer and them asking for control to ‘fix’ it… but didn’t do so and found out this was another type of scam… I contacted the RCMP at the time as I think that’s who was looking into it… Diane
