I am calling about the problems you are having with your computer

I just had one of those phone calls about the problems with my computer (they’ve been increasing recently).

I lied. “I don’t have a computer,” I told her.

“Yes, this is about the problems you are having with it.”

“I don’t have a computer,” I repeated.

“But you do have broadband.”

The tone in her voice had changed. She was guessing that I had a computer because she knew that I had broadband.

How did she know that? Is it common knowledge available to anyone? Is it obtained nefariously? Or do our ISPs sell their customer lists?
