Scam Microsoft Call "your PC is infected"

Recommended Posts

It was my turn today to get tha scam call from india "microsoft" about my PC being infected.

I kept it going until I no longer had the will to live, 30 minutes.

He phoned back "why you hang up? Your'e PC is corrupt"

I said the only corruption was on the other end of the phone, and still he could not get it. He gave me a second website to prove he was from Microsoft LOL!

I have most of it recorded, might post it up later.

XD the only problem with that is, Microsoft should never call you about an infected PC, last time i checked. blooming plonkers! not you, them :P sorry speaking my mind again. post the conversation up sounds like a good laugh :lol:

I played along for grins when I got their call about a month ago.

I googled it after hanging up and apparently if someone falls for it they get their credit card number and bill them for cleaning up their "infected" computer.

Love to hear that recording Rocky.

Or you could set your PC up to record through a mic, then playback the recording off the iPhone into the mic. You wil loose some audio quality that way though.

There are a couple of articles here Rocky but I'm not sure if they will help as they are for voice memos, don't know if it's the same as I've never used that feature on my iphone.
