Re: "I am calling from Windows" scammer calls ARS.....

I remember the last time these boneheads called me.

Caller: This is Windows technical support. We are calling because your Windows PC has viruses.
Me: Uhm, I don't run Windows, I run Linux.
Caller: Yes I know, its Microsoft Linux.

And yes, the moron proceeds to try to tell me how to get to the event viewer.
