Got one of those scam calls from someone portending to be from Microsoft security yesterday.
"You don't sound like you're from Seattle," I said, "Where are you calling from?"
"I'm calling from India," was the reply.
"So why does my phone show you calling from Detroit?" I asked.
"I don't work for Detroit, I work for Microsoft," she said.
I'd had enough, that's where I disconnected.
After my conversation, I wonder if some of the foreigners making these calls actually think they're working in a legit call center.
They don't seem very sophisticated.
I once had a "Microsoft" scam caller tell me his name was "Barack Obama" as if it were a common American name. I wondered if he even knew who the real Barack Obama was.
