Feeling in a mood to verbally fence with telemarketers, I answered a toll free call, mentally prepared to dance around their ridiculous pitches. This time was a first, a variation on a common theme pretending to be from Dell or Microsoft and advising that my computer was "infected." Planning to ask whether this astute analysis revealed a contagious virus or whatever that was worse than ebola or flu, and whether this was something Fox Mulder and Scully had discovered in their extra terrestrial esplorations, I was surprised when I was told that: Allegedly I had a support contract with Microsoft, purchased a few months ago. But now (and hold onto your brains), Microsoft was going out of business and was refunding my service contract cost. MS? Going out of business? Their claim would be more realistic if they had said invaders from Pluto were taking over my health care. I think this group of pranksters REALLY needs a reality check.
