I have had hundreds of these calls sometime 2-3 per day, I just take them for a ride and play along pretending to do what they say , like hang on a minute my computer is very slow... wasting their time , then in the end I end up saying I own a Mac and they hang up!! lol

hahaha there is a group on line that does that, its a competition to see who can keep it going the longest such as emails about I need your account details and will give you half the 2 million Ive inherited. I was reading some of the stories a while back and howling, they were winding them up for months, Ill have to dig out a link for you
