Trolling Windows Support Spammers

I'm sure many of you reading this have received a call from a "Microsoft Support" technician claiming that your computer has been compromised and that you need to install some software so they can fix it. This is a popular scam that I usually deflect by claiming to run either ChromeOS, Linux or OSX. If you have a lot of patience though, you could troll them for hours - as did the guy at the link below.

On Monday afternoon, I got a phone call that someone now probably wishes they never made. Caller ID said the call was coming from "MDU Resources," but the caller said he was calling from "the technical support center." He informed me there were "junk files" on my computer slowing it down and that he was going to connect me with a technician to help fix the problem.
