In my best Indian (dot not feather) accent. My home office number rings:
Hello……..hello I’m calling from Microsoft OS support and we have reports that your computer is sending many error reports and virus detection's. We see they've reached maximum levels and could cause a crash down. If left unsolved they will multiply each day.
I’m fighting back laughter but just going along with this scam. I asked for a number to call back if we get disconnected (800) 870-1306. This call goes on until she asks me to go into my windows and type a command prompt which terminates our call. I do call back the 800 number and then as for Satish (he was one of my High School math teachers) and the guy said we don’t have anyone here by that name and then asked where I was calling from. I said California and he said no and was I calling from any organizations or government agencies and then hung up !
I would like anyone willing to teach these computer scammers a lesson to please if inside the USA call this 800 number (800) 870-1306 and tie them up with as many questions as you can throw at them and if you too get this call at home please ignore/hang up or play along and waste as much of their time as humanly possible ! Happy and safe computing……..
