original title:Funny phone call
I live in PA and got a phone call from someone who didn't speak English as a first language telling me I had malware and virus' on my computer and that he was a tech from Microsoft. He asked if my computer was on...I said no...he told me to turn it on and he would fix it. sounded funny to me so I asked which computer...he said mine...I said which one...he again said mine...I again said which one...that made me very wary. I have 6 computers in my house...if he was from Microsoft and there actually was a problem, he could have told me which one...I hung up. Fortunately for me, I have been working on computers since 1982 and I do not have online banking for that very reason and since he couldn't tell me which one (an error code would have given him my exact computer) and which operating system it used.
