    Fake Calls about your PC

    Answered my desk phone at work today to hear the following in what I would describe as an Indian accent.

    I kept him on the line for a good five minutes acting daft when he asked me to press windows key and R together.
    He kept repeating R for Romance (I think he meant to say Romeo) and then the windows key.
    I kept saying I was pressing R for romance and W for windows and he got increasingly frustrated trying to describe the windows key and telling me to stop pressing the W key..
    He then passed me to a technical expert who again tried to talk me through it and then asked if I knew my actual internet speed. I replied that it was always a steady 10mph unless going downhill. He shouted at me that I was an idiot and hung up! 😂

    Have a look at this one which did the rounds a couple of years ago. A Hibby, to boot.

    I either tell them I don't have a computer so how can I have problems, they hang up immediately or I ask them how they know I have problems, so they must've hacked into my PC, I then tell them I'm calling the police as I have their number on my phone, again they hang up.
