    It's definitely a scam, I normally ask what they are wearing and let it go down hill from there
    LOL. I'll try to keep that in mind for the next time IF I have time to "fool" with them!

    My rule is if they call you then they are fair game for whatever you can throw at them!!!

    Some times I'll just say Computer? I don't own a computer. Long silence, click. Or oh, you work for Microsoft too. Quick click. If I'm in a bad mode I'll try to keep them on the line as long as possible and act like I haven't a clue how a computer works.

    Also, don't believe Caller ID labels, they can be spoofed (made to show false info).

    That's why i always revers the number and get the address, but i also no specifically if its them calling me as i scheduled the call for a time and a day. :). I usually tell the idiots calling me pretending like they are support, that wow i don't own a windows computer i have Linux based pc, so sorry can't help you.

    It happened to me a few years ago
    What I did was picked up the phone and said thanks for calling and I kept them on the phone for about 30Min going threw a long problem that I did not have; then I said go to hell and I slammed the phone down.
    They never called me back that was a few years ago when I had a Spoofed HP Tech Support Case Manager calling me and I knew it was not them because I had already settled my problem with the case manager two weeks before that.

    There goal is to get Credit Card Numbers and other stuff so be careful
    and what I would do since they are impersonating a company like that I would contact MS and let them know so they can take action if needed.
    I did that with HP and they logged it for me
