I got the call, indian woman said she was from Windows, I probed from where, she said windows, I said do you mean Microsoft, “no” she said, “they make computers, Windows make the operating system”!
I let her take me through the initial lead into scam steps and then got her to hang up on me. Great stuff- good game but some people may be scared into thinking their computer is about to breakdown mor publicity on scams needed I think. We warn elderly of callers to the door trying to trick them out of money, surely this is just as bad if not worse.
