Scammer: *in a very thick Indian accent* “Yes, this is Peter, and I am calling from Microsoft, and we have detected a hacker has gotten into your computer and is trying to steal all of your information. Is your computer on right now?”

Me: “Which computer?”

Scammer: “The hacker is in your computer, ma’am.”

Me: “You know you called a college, right? There are literally hundreds of computers you could be referring to right now.”

Scammer: “Oh, I called a college? You know what? I think I have the wrong…” *click*
