Sadly, a lot of senior citizens seem to fall for this.
My neighbour got one of these calls. She is in her eighties and doesn't own a computer. She had heard about this scam, though, and for her own amusement she played along for several minutes, claiming problem after problem in following the guys instructions, until the caller accused her of wasting his time! :)
