  • RSS 2.0

    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

  • Comments RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

Another Phone Scam

Filed under: Telemarketing Scams & Robocalls — Charlie Summers @ 1:14 pm

Got the following on the answering machine (note the recording/generated voice apparently started at pickup, so it’s truncated in the beginning):

…expired, and all Microsoft services have been stopped on your computer. To renew license key please call {number removed}. Hi. This is an emergency call to notify you that the license key of your Microsoft Windows is expired. To renew license key please call {number removed}.

Obviously, this is bogus; if you get this message, do not call that number! According to the Soundboard Prank Calls Wiki, “The Indian Scammers are members of an India-based telemarketing and computer-fraud ring known as GuruAid (formerly Online PC Care). They pose as a legitimate technical support firm, but deliberately install malware onto their victims’ computer’s hard-drive, via remote desktop access ” Other websites suggest the fee to “renew” the Windows license key from these scammers is $199.95…yipe!

From the Los Angeles Daily News: “Prince of Tides” author Pat Conroy dies at 70

Mr. Conroy was the guest of The Bob Edwards Show twice, once in late 2010 and again in early 2014. In December of 2014, Executive Producer Chad Campbell and Bob aired an hour containing the meat from both appearances, which I’ve posted below.
