lol...good point. the guy who phoned me said they had a "report" from my computer the last 2 weeks. I don't run Microsoft Essentials and the only way he would know anything is thru Update which i doubt they use for that purpose. It may be the person who phoned me doesn't even know it's a scam? Very bad English which doesn't help pull off a successful scam and I questioned him about my IP address which he got wrong. Got him to confirm he's in California and his name was Tom Tarker. I asked him to email me the report and he said they are not allowed. Highly suspicious. I told him multiple times I don't know who you are and he kept saying Microsoft. So what anyone can say they are anyone on the phone. For all I know it was Al Queda.
