A couple weeks ago we came back to McAllen from Puebla state. A day or two later, I got a call from a man who said my computer had a virus and he could not accept that. Since I run Linux, I well knew that my computer had no virus.
My voice got rather loud. I told him I started on microprocessors in 1974, that I was using Linux, and that my computer had no problems at all, and slammed up the phone.
I walked in to the other room to tell my wife about the call, when the phone rang again. This time the man wanted to talk to my wife. I asked the purpose of the call and he repeated he wanted to talk to her. I told him we screen each others calls.
He said she had a credit coming from a local store I had never heard of before. I understood he would tell her that he needed her credit card number to give her the credit. Hee, hee. He then said he’d call her later.
Later, my daughter told us both types of calls are very common in McAllen now.
