Imagine my surprise when a nice gentleman from India phoned me today to tell me that my Windows computer has a corrupt Windows Messenger that is affecting my command system!

Small problem. I have an iMac…

Lets see what my new friend thinks about that.

Nice work at keeping him going for over 3 minutes, that’s time that he can’t be on a call where someone unfortunately falls for his nonsense.

I love how the guy was so clueless that the fact you’re using a Mac didn’t instantly tell him that he’s already been caught. I love when a call comes in and it’s someone trying to operate a scam, because each time they call, they hang up on me within a minute because I ask who they are/what company/number they can be reached at. They realize up front that they’re not going to get anywhere and so move on. Sadly, those fools then try again and so they waste their time on me.

I’ve yet to receive this phone call. I wonder if it’s because I’m registered somewhere as an I.T technician and web developer. The scary bit of this is that there are people who are not in the know when it comes to computing in general, as a result these people end up with their data stolen.
