I feel left out, where is my offer?

Its been ages since I had one of the prince/relative letters!

I had "Windows" calling me once to say I had a virus that was broadcasting from my house and that I had to go and switch my PC on immediately. From the offset I knew it was BS, the fact was that I was in front of my squeeky clean PC and it was on just reinforced this belief.

They wanted me to type some address in my IE address bar (telling them I used firefox only seemed to baffle them) and then follow the on screen instructions. Of course I did none of this and just acted dumb as hell to try and irrate them, I think they were dumb as hell anyway so it was like water off a ducks back.

So then I said to them that I did not believe what they were saying and that I always thought Windows was an OS/product and that Microsoft are the actual company, why would they be calling me and how did they get my number as I always use a dummy number online. They hung up on me. lol

Looking into it they trick you into activating a remote access program from the address you put in so they can grab personal info from your PC. It was a while ago but they kept calling for weeks, they even tried it on with my parents which pissed me off as they are old and not technically clued up and liable to fall for stuff like that. Fortunately my bro was there at the time and he hung up on them.

Anyone had the Strathclyde police scam? Had to remove that from a friends PC recently, he was bricking in case his wife found he had been look at the good stuff.
