I remember when I first received a call from Jason (or whatever that particular person’s name was) informing me that I had problems with my computer. As it turned out, my computer had been acting up, although it was nothing serious. I was waiting for a good time to have it checked out. So, I was willing to talk with him until I discovered that he wanted me to give him control of my computer. As the expression goes, Fool me once shame on you; fool me twice shame on me.
Periodically over the years, I have received calls from other “helpful Jasons” who are calling to assist me. In the past, I have had some fun with them, saying bizarre things that threw them off guard. Once, I thanked the caller profusely for helping me the previous day at no charge. I told him that it was nice that he had done all this for me for free!
