Some sort of Prank or something

Looks like someone has been using my email address in email support sessions with Linksys.

As someone used my email address, I got an automatic transcript of two chats. Mindless humour.

CHAT 1

Hi, my name is Ernie C. (27271). How may I help you?
Anonymous: Yo
Ernie C. (27271): It's good to have you. What seems to be the problem?
Anonymous: You gotta help me alrite? I'm in deep trouble now
Ernie C. (27271): What's your concern Sir/Maam?
Anonymous: I just screwed up my router and it isn't working now
Anonymous: I'm freaking out now
Anonymous: Are you gonna save me?
Anonymous: Hello? Are you slacking at work?
Ernie C. (27271): Please confirm if WRVS4400N is the model of your router.

Ernie C. (27271): What's the problem with your router?

Ernie C. (27271): Is the router powered on?

Ernie C. (27271): Sir/Ma'am, you just have called 911 if your intention is to save your cat.
Anonymous: But it was your router dropped on my cat
Ernie C. (27271): How can the router dropped your cat? Does the router move?

Ernie C. (27271): How can a router kill a cat within a 2 Ft high stool?

Ernie C. (27271): Sir, if you don't mind, we have some other clients who need serious assistance from us. If you continue to be uncooperative then sorry to say but I will terminate this session.
