Any of you receive crank calls in the early hours of the morning from distant area codes?

    Was getting a bunch of scam calls from "Microsoft" saying they were deducting money from my account unless I pressed one to cancel or some such BS, but was during normal business hours, except last night around 8pm

    I quit answering & let it go to voicemail and the number of calls has dropped

    Yeah we used to get those as well, something about "your computer security is about to expire" and then they tell you to press a number. I figured it was a scam. I feel for those who fall for it. It's dirty stuff.

    The early morning calls we are receiving are designed to harass. Early morning calls, 7 am etc. No VM left, so it's not even a robocall per se, just a "wake up call" very early in the morning.

    I am confident it's my countrymen looking to bother me. Their own hubris has caused great harm to our country, and even without me calling them out and exposing it, it was just a matter of time. You can exploit an economy and your allies for so long without it being known. Especially in regards to human rights and capitalism.

    I don't answer, I don't look. I check messages occasionally. That is all.

    My land line has been out of commission for the last few days and it's been a pleasure not to have those damn robo calls all day long.

    Sadly, the guy's coming to fix it today.

    Without question. Some of the calls I receive are U.S area codes, I highly doubt that the U.S authorities are helping Canada to rattle my cage. I hope my honesty has dawned on them at this point.

    America is not Canada, they know a real threat from a fabricated one designed to protect the behinds of abusers in Canada, at great cost I might add.

    What does this have to do with the thread title?
