Yup Bob they are for sure.

My brother got a call from his Bank one day asking him why he was applying for their VISA as he already had one. As a result of that call he looked into the situation and discovered that someone had used only his name and SSN# to acquire several credit cards and they didnt even have the correct birth date on any of the applications or the correct address - they used an address on the other side of the country. He learned the party had racked up over $160,000 in credit card debit over the last 60 days! The credit card companies involved all ended up eating the charges as they were the ones who issued the cards using very poor applicant verification practices. To this day he still does not know how someone obtained his SSN#.

I got a call from Microsoft on my house phone a few days ago. They called me by name. (My name is in the phone book). This is the third time in a couple of years. Each time I was informed that my computer had a malfunction that was causing problems on the internet and was I near my computer? Of course they will try to get you to activate the remote technical assistance feature then when they have control of the computer they can copy files looking for financial information etc.

Each time I enjoy toying with the person knowing that he is a scammer. "Yes I am on it right now. Let me finish my banking transaction". Then tell him that have several Apple computers. Tell him that you think the one he is asking about was stolen. Ask why his phone number does not show up on your caller ID. Say just a minute and I will set up a three way call with you and me and the detective who is working my case.

LOL Bruce I have been having great fun with the Microsoft Technical Assistant calls as well. Love playing them along.... sometimes they go along with it for awhile but then get mad and hang up when they realize they have been well had. LOL

Willy, I saw the same Casita $2400 ad on Craigslist for Metro Detroit yesterday. I went back to flag it after reading your post, and it is already gone.
