Just had theis phone scam on my business phone and home phone, so beware

Virus phone scam being run from call centres in India | Technology | The Guardian

I'm working on computers and getting rid of spyware and malware for a living now as part of my business so when this lady rang I thought I would string her along. It was an international call and I always pick these calls up and say nothing so if it is one of those sales recordings it doesn't kick in and they hang up. Anyway this is how it went. First asked for me by name and then went on about what spyware was and it had been detected on my computer. She asked my if my computer was on and i said no so I made her wait for a couple of minutes for me to 'boot up'(it was on all the time) She then asked me to find the control key, another 15 seconds wasted while i looked for it. After I 'found' it she told me to look for the Windows key to the right of it. I told her there wasn't one and she said it is definitely there and I said it wasn't. I then broke the news to her I was on a Mac

Anyway beware it's a scam she rang my home number after that.
