    an "Microsoft Windows Tech Support", you guys probably know what kind of call i am talking about, saying that my pc was infected and my info was in danger. never heard about an Indian Phone Scammer before in Canada.
    the guy was talking like a robot(literally).
    i trolled him for about 20 minutes, then asked him if the problems my pc was having was because it had Ubuntu installed on it?
    He literally told me that Ubuntu was a Virus that installed itself on my pc and that it was leaking my personal information online. i just laugh, told him off then, hung up the phone.

    i thought at first that it was one my supervisors at work(there is one that kind of talks like that), calling to ask if i could work the night shift, but no it was this idoit

    Maybe you should send the number of the people who called to these guys.
