    That's what I usually do with calls from numbers I don't know, and of course, hidden numbers.


    Sounds like somebody selling crappy papers, reminded me of 'Wolf of Wallstreet' :D

    I think if you actually managed to get your parts serial number from them you could be in line to make this international news worthy with a possible payout from media and even Dell. Heck that new PC upgrade might even be in order with a night at the four seasons, hookers and cocaine included.

    Chances are they got your number but not the serials to your PC. I usually take them for an emotional joyride and finish them off by putting the phone next to a speaker with a hardcore porn video playing.

    Problem calls ?

    Tell them to f**k off.

    Joking aside, hurling abuse down the phone at them can make you flagged as a dodgy lead. Not every nuisance call is a back room boiler call.

    If it sounds more plausible than an annoying sales call then it's ironically, implausibly not, a bona fide call.

    If all else fails buy a whistle, blow it down the mouth piece then stand back and amaze at the lo-tech solution to a hi-tech problem.

    Yeah I used to get alot of those until I changed my number.

    "Hello this is Robert from Mumbai........" because there is alot of Roberts and micheals and Bobs and Chads in Mumbai

    Indian lady called and said the exact same thing.

    "You have a problem with your computer"
    No I don't.
    "Yes you do"
    No I don't.
    "Yes you do"
    No I doooooooooon't (Pavarotti voice lol)

    It's not just one group doing this. There are probably dozens, if not hundreds of these scammer groups operating individually, all trying the same or similar tricks. The last time I told them that I knew they weren't from Microsoft, that there wasn't anything wrong with my computer, and for them to go to hell.

    The time before that, I pulled a Liam Neesson on 'em, telling 'em I had a particular set of skills which I would use to find them, and kill them. Next time, I'm gonna pretend to be a hillbilly, with no computer, and no TV. I'll see how long I can keep them on the line, screwing with 'em. :)
