Phoney call from MS:
- We at Microsoft have detected an issue with your PC.
- Oh, I only have a Mac.
- But that is fine, I will transfer you to the Mac department...

    @Paramite if you go to YouTube and search scammers, some YouTubers will provide some phone numbers so you can play with them.

    For a while, I had a virtual machine lying around in the case a support scammer phoned. The plan was to give them access to it, take a VM snapshot, let them poke around a bit and then revert to the snapshot and enjoy their reactions.

    Oddly, they phoned my relatives, some friend but never me, so I couldn't test my ploy.

    I'm getting a lot of these lately for some reason. My view is simple. If they're going to waste my time I'll waste their own too.

    Whilst I'm working at my desk I have the phone on loudspeaker so I can keep him talking for as long as possible.

    They alwAys get pretty annoyed at the end which is a bonus. Talking everything they saying literally seems to work great. I.e. "Wwwdot" :)
