Your SSL certificate is expiring

So, I got an interesting call this morning.   I was on the phone, so it got left with our Office Admin.

 

She came up to me to tell me that XXXX from Comodo called because our SSL certificate from our web server was expiring.

 

To me, that’s very interesting, because Comodo isn’t providing our certificates.   As well, this server is only available to clients, and doesn’t appear in any search engine, etc. because everything is password protected.

 

I doubt I’m going to return that call, I’m quite happy with my current CA, but it does make me wonder how much luck they have with that cold calling schema.
