They are getting too clever now. I had a call on Friday, same thing. They asked for me by name in the strong Indian or Asian accent that they all seem to have. Before I said who I was I asked who was calling me and he said , "my name is Alan Smith" raftl raftl raftl
So I hung up!

I had few in the middle of the night from eBay saying press a number if you are expecting this call. I put the phone down and it rang straight back. So I pressed he number and it gave me a code to enter on eBay. When I checked the umber it was from brazil. Not sure if someone was trying to hack my account and change my password. I feared pressing the button would make a transfer call to a foreign country for which I would be charged.
