    I received the following text message today:

    "Dear User, Your credit card is debited with 99.99USD for 2 Month PC Tech Support. If you wish to cancel the subscription, please Dial on 18447842888."

    Because this was oddly worded, I called your fraud department and Nellie confirmed that the charge had not been made. She advised me to notify the Abuse Dept. Since I have been unable to locate such a department, I chose this route. If further info is needed, please advise.

    Lorraine, Boise, Idaho.
