Fake Debt Collectors

Update: Found this detail on Free Press for reporting: "To report a problem, call the Michigan Department of Human Services Adult Protective Services' 24-hour hotline at 800-996-6228.

Original Post:

Strange call, my dad received a phone call from some Law Firm. First day my parents said it was a lady then next day it was a guy and another day when i picked up the phone it was a guy, who transferred me to another supervisor guy than a lawyer guy.

The guy was persistent that my parents took a cash out at some advance america or some store.

He kept telling we are suing you (your parents) for money. When asked when the money was taken out he said two months ago and i said two months, in two months you decided to sue without red letters or debt collectors letter or any kind of letter first? He was keep giving me that we are a Law Firm from Texas and what not and it will be over $4000 if you don't settle it now over the phone and blah blah...

when i kept asking for more and more information the guy finally stopped calling... after three days of conversations with me...

i tried researching to report these as harassment calls but sadly i knew it was fake debt collectors, but i didn't have a proof, well may be three calls are not proof by some standards, hmmm i think that guy kind of gave me fake promise to mail me all the detail papers to home address that he so vehemently telling me this is your address and this is the name. Sadly, i just have to wait to get some paper to file report... which never came in the mail...

Senior citizens are always take up for not being sure of something... i wish the consumer advocate groups do more outreach to senior citizens to tell them their rights and how to deal with fake callers and fake debt collectors.

Mobile Screenshot Crime

Why-O-Why am I not able to take a screenshot on Phones? I had the same issue on Windows phone and now I feel the same with Google Nexus. Why can't we have a simple option next to flash light for screenshot or some other combination that will not open up the volume option or the power off or restart option.

There must me a better way to take a screenshot. No, not through some third party app but rather a build in option. Who would have thought that with all the camera and video features build into the phones, we would actually be struggling with taking a screenshot?
I don't know if it's just me but I can't seem to have my thumb or fingers in sync to the mini-mils second. I end-up almost always on volume popup, or if I try my luck to the other dark side; the power off popup; it should be a crime to not be able to take a darn screenshot, or allow some of us to choose different key combination to take a screenshot.

Update:
It seems the culprit is the phone case; so much f…

Microsoft Band and Windows Phone 8 Support

Will Microsoft Band be supported on Windows Phone 8? Without the 8.1 update?
I have been searching for answers since the Band was announced, but so far can't find any notes regarding my old phone.
I even have Windows Phone 7 but it seems that will be a no no from Microsoft.
If you have something to share please post it below.

Seriously? Internet Explorer Low-Mic Utility Tool

Talk about not so bright people being responsible for naming conventions and acronyms. The IE team allegedly says that “Mic” stands for “Medium Integrity Cookie”… hmmm I might give some hoot to a MSDN blog but is it really??? The process runs non stop, and if I try stopping it, the process makes Windows 8 non stable.hmmm What Gives?
