Phone call received on our house phone....
"Hi can I talk the technical person who looks after your computer"
Um thats me then... who are you ?
"<somecompany name > .. Microsoft ... Vista.."
Sorry can't hear you very well ( obviously on an IP phone )
"You have an internet problem, we have been monitoring your internet and there is a problem you need to go to our site and download a fix"
um .. really I'm the technical director here, what IP address do you have.
Guy puts phone down !
I picked up the local paper, turn to page 3.. Local police warning on people getting telephone calls about internet problem encouraging them to download a file which scans for passwords and bank details. Police suggest calls coming from India.
Ha times must be hard.. the problem is the guys office seemed very busy on the phones.
