I've gotten dozens of calls from 'microsoft' advising me that there is a virus on my computer and that I need to pay them to help me to remove it.......by going to a web site they tell me to go to.

every now and then, I let them go on for a minute or two...then ask them, what kind of computer they think I have that has the problem. Surely they have all that information right there...... and if I'm really nasty that day.....whatever they say, I say nope, I've got an Apple....even though I don't....

Most of the callers seem to have an accent.....
