It seems like I had no sooner filed the complaint, than my phone rang with a number bearing a 799 area code. 799? Where exactly is that? Well, it's nowhere as the area code is not assigned. At least according to Google.
When the phone rang again a few minutes later, I went online to my Xfinity account and was going to block the number. Lo and behold, cue the music, there was a notice that Xfinity participates in Nomorobo and all I had to do was go to their site and register my phone. YES!!! YES!!! YES!!!
I had no sooner registered the home phone that the phone rang once and then stopped. Since 1:00 this afternoon this same number has called not once, not twice, but thirteen times. When I Googled the number, callers said it was either someone telling them they were from the IRS and needed to collect money before they were arrested, or it was Microsoft Windows telling them their computer was sending out viral messages and was infected.
More recently I received a phone call telling me my Windows licence was expired and I would have to pay them to renew it before I could use my computer. Do you really think I am that stupid? Is anyone that stupid?
