I received as phone call this weekend from a 'windows' technical support.

Like you I did go through the rigmarole of pressing keys and being shown PNF files and an expired SSL certificate. However when he couldn't/wouldn't give me the zipcode of the address in California they were supposedly calling from I pulled out of the discussion.

Like you I don't have my own website, I do some home office work on my pc, otherwise it's just social.

Did you find out anything? As it would be helpful to know.
