    It is like harassment--they are calling every hour and it is clearly fake.

    Always suspect something is not right when someone calls you to say something is not working?
    Disregarded this phone message.

    Eternal vigilance.

    Have received three calls from a Chicago number that comes up as a local Apple store.
    I did not follow through with either talking to someone immediately or calling the 844 number. Annoying but I don't believe any harm has been done.
