I've been getting a bunch of calls from phone number "234567890" (yes 9
digits) on my cell phone which would call and then ask you to hold.
Hung up on it a few times but on number 5 or 6 I wanted it to go away so
I waited. A woman came on and I think (very difficult to understand
through her accent) was telling me that my computer was sending out a
lot of viruses on the network. I think they wanted me to buy some
software or something. Would have strung it out more for amusement but
I just couldn't understand her. Told them never to call me again and
haven't heard from them in a day or so. So something else to be aware of.
