So I got this call saying that my computer had a virus so I listen 3 minutes into it and hang up (I block the number also).?

I only answer the call because my mom told me to. Anyways I didn't do anything to my computer. I wanted to know if I'll be in their calling list and hopefully not. I know it's fake.

Best Answer:

Ianab: Chances are they are using a "list' called the phone book.

It's likely they will call you back.

Next call, pretend that you called them. and order some Indian takeaways, they like calls like that.

Then the next time, abuse them for not delivering the Chicken Curry and Naan bread that you ordered last time.

Doesn't help, but it wastes their time.

Other answer:

Ianab:
Chances of being called back are low but if they call again just hang up on them.
Joe:
You did the right thing. (Personally, I use these calls as an opportunity to practice my profanity.)

You may get other calls like this, from this criminal, or other criminals using the same "business model".

Just keep hanging up.

?:
They call a whole list of random numbers in order. Just trying to get you to allow them to mess up your machine. Then charge you for it.
Kittysue:
It's a scam. They call hundreds of people a day. Watch what happens if you allow them to access your computer
