A friend has just had phone call from man with Indian accent saying he was from Windows Security centre - fortunately he gave him short shrift. So beware out there!

I get these quite often. I was in a silly mood and went along with the chap. When he told me to open my windows,
I told him it was far too cold to have the windows open.
Line went dead for some reason. Rolling Eyes

If I get any of these annoying phone calls, I ask them to hang on a minute and leave the phone off the hook. The longer it takes the caller to realise that you are not on the other end the more it will cost them.
Also not to mention the time wasted waiting on you to return to continue the call.
