I've gotten a couple of those calls already. I like to let them think
I'm cooperating, ask them specifics about the "problem" (usually a bunch
of total BS, even on a Windows computer, meaning they don't even know
anything themselves), and then ask them which version of Windows -- that
I have more than one computer with different versions installed. That
usually trips them up with an "uh, uh, uh" ... then tell them I don't
have the version they asked for, and all the "stuff" they told me was
wrong was total BS.
Either they just hang up or get real mad. I don't why they should be so
mad? Don't they like it when someone jacks with them? I mean, they're
trying to do the same thing to me, just with malicious intent ...
