I received a phone call from someone claiming to be from Microsoft telling me that I had a virus in my Windows computer, which is interesting because I was running Linux! Listen as I play along and learn how the con works.
NO ONE AT MICROSOFT IS MONITORING YOUR COMPUTER FOR VIRUSES! NO LEGITIMATE COMPANY CALLS YOU TO OFFER TECH SUPPORT.
