I do IT work for people, so I get calls frequently asking whether it's a scam or not. On the up side, this means that I've prevented these idiots from scamming a lot of people out of $300 for nothing.

They stay on for about 45 minutes and then called back and I put them back on hold again. Hmmm I wonder if they call back again... Laughing Twisted Evil

My best is 1 hour 15 minutes. I played the not-savvy grandfather with his three grandkids over. Right in the middle of his instructions, I would have to 'yell' at the kids to stop doing things, interrupting his train of thought. Had the poor d00d pulling his hair out by stymieing him on his web-page he wanted me to go to and then not giving him my correct number for Team Viewer. I gave him a number that connects to a honeypot that's on frequently and I heard him cry when his computer started downloading the malware from that honeypot.

Poor little East Indian d00d. I ruined his day.

It used to be 17862133 but it's been about a year since I last used it on a fake M$ scammer. They do change the number from time to time.

My dad got stung by one of these guys a few years ago, and so the first few times they called me I acted really pissy, or told told them I wasn't running Windows and called them a liar. Of course if you call them a liar they just lie and say they aren't.

Finally got to the point where I'd say something like, "Do you know which computer it is? Do you have the machine's name?"

The guy might say something like, "We didn't get that information, only that your computer reported it needs service."

My reply, "That's really weird. A computer's name is one of the easiest things for an external service to pick up. Even websites can figure that out if they want it. How can you possibly have my phone number if you don't know my computer's name? Is this a random call?"

Usually they realize you know they're bullshit at this point, and so they give up. The last time the guy hung up on me at this point (didn't even say goodbye).

I haven't had this happen to me, but I've seen some hilarious videos where people manage to hack the scammer and take control of their computers. I think one guy even got network access and locked down the whole group, but I may be remembering wrong.
