Another day, another tele-scam call

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.
