“Hello I’m from Microsoft and your computer is sending us messages that it is full of viruses”
Have you received one of those calls? I get them all the time. I have fun with them, particularly since I’m on a Mac.
Today I managed to keep the guy on the phone for 25 minutes before he gave up in despair. I play really dumb, as in:
Him: “Click on the Start button”
Me: “The What?”
Him: “The “Windows Start button”
Me: “I don’t see a button named Start”
Him: It’s that button in the taskbar with four little flags.
Me: What’s a Taskbar?”
Then about every 5 minutes I say “Hold on a minute I have to let the cat out.” then I wait 2-3 minutes before getting back on the phone. About 2 minutes later I say “Hang on I have to let the cat back in.” The guy today got a little impatient with these constant interruptions so I launched into a story about how I rescued my cat from the Humane Society and he was there in that cold little cage and he was scared and confused, etc etc.)
I figure if I can drive enough of them to suicide it will be worth the time spent.
