Same call here this morning. Indian accent. I played along feeling like I was getting scammed right from the get go. After 5 minutes or so of telling the caller i was doing what he said (but really was doing nothing), he became agitated and raised his voice in an angry tone. I laughed and hung up. 30 seconds later, he called back yelling and screaming. LOL. Suuuure your name is BOB. Scammers!

I realize this forum is a few years old, but I had a call exactly like this. The only twist to my story is that we only had macs at the time. Of course, the guy said, "we are from windows, and we have reports of a security glitch (or something like that, I can't remember) with windows 7" I just kept stringing him along, (I couldn't understand half of what he was saying anyway...!) until a few minutes later, I said, "You know what, I don't have a windows PC except for an old XP laptop from 2002!" He hung up.
My advice? Don't trust suspicious phone calls from people you can't understand. Also (as many other people have said already), the IT people don't call you, it's the other way around. The best thing to do is just waste their time (if you're smart about it!) so they don't harm somebody else. An ounce of prevention is a pound of cure!
