J. S. Bach’s Siciliano g-moll BWV 1031
I should let you know that I will have to use a new identity because of internet fraud. In fact, yesterday I received an email from a WordPress colleague who was asking for money because s/he was in trouble.
It could be that someone was using that colleague’s name to take money away from me. That’s identity theft used to defraud someone.
I got a phone call from “Microsoft” and was told that my computer was about to crash. Employees of my credit card company were monitoring and noticed I was being defrauded. They cancelled the transaction and phoned me immediately. In fact, I felt something may be amiss and I was about to phone them. But they phoned first, in less than five minutes.
If you get a phone call from a person who claims s/he is an employee of Microsoft and asks you to uninstall your anti-virus software, hang up and call the police.
You will also be asked to use a card other than Visa, MasterCard or American Express. These companies hire experts who catch thieves in the act.
It will take me a few weeks to re-invent myself. Fortunately, they do not read our posts. So, there may be a way of letting you know what I have become.

Sorry to hear of your woes, Micheline. Hope everything works out in the end. I like Ms. Nicolayeva, but I’m biased towards Wanda Landoska, who I grew up listening to and never forget my treasured vinyl copy of the Well Tempered Clavier. I always thought I had to go through Ms. Landowska first in order to understand and appreciate what Wendy Carlos did later. All the best.
I’m also biased towards Wanda Landowska. She revived the harpsichord and remained an extraordinary pianist.
I am glad the fraud was detected.
So am I. It was detected immediately. The credit card company employee had me turn off the computer and told me to contact Dell to make sure the thieves had not left viruses. These people destroy computers, but I had not disabled my anti-virus. Take care.
Ah man! That really gets me mad! If these thugs put their talents to good use, they could get a decent wage helping people. But to do this kind of work in fraud? (When I’m worked up my English isn’t so good)! I enjoy your posts, Micheline, so I hope to find you again. Good luck with this!
Thank you TK,
You’ll find me again. As I wrote, they do not read the posts. I must also warn the other WordPress author. The email was in a foreign language but I managed to read it. This is terrible.
Thank you for writing to me.

Dear Marsha, I do need a little money to purchase books and carry on with my research. I tried ad choices, but my page got cluttered and the advertisers were not the advertisers I needed. I might decide on a Donate button. I will try to “ayudarme.” Thank you for writing. Best.
