Within the last week, I've received 3 phone calls at 3 different locations from technicians who are calling "from Microsoft" about "Windows problems" that they've detected on my PC.
Which they haven't because scam. And it was only good luck that I was visiting my parents when they called them. I've since warned them to just hang up on anyone who tries that.
I'm in the United States. I'm on the do not call list. The phone calls come from an unidentifiable phone number. The voices on the other line have been heavily accented, reminiscent of someone from a call center in India.
I've seen this video of someone completely awesome running one of these guys through a honeypot.
I'm technically inclined, and I'm tempted to create my own virtual garbage environment for them to screw with and try to hijack, but it might be more effort than I am capable of putting out.
Other than requesting the caller perform deviant acts upon himself and his family, then hanging up, is there anything technical I can do, or report? Is there a fake honeypot website I can use to simulate what he's looking for to waste his time and perhaps backtrack him? How should I handle this for maximum impact against the caller?
