Just posting an alert to say that we're in Pleasanton and had a scam cakk this morning. It was the one where they to claim to be from Microsoft/Windows/etc tech department, and tell you that there's something wrong with your computer.
If you have elderly relatives with computers in the area, it might be worth reminding them to be on the alert for this scam, because it's the second such call we've had.

"Call", not "cakk". Of course.

You've got to admit, though, that the scammers have great customer service. The real Microsoft Windows tech department would never be calling and offering to help everyone inconvenienced by their programming bugs.
