SOMETIMES THE STUPIDITY OF PEOPLE AMAZES ME

2018-04-08       
     I am constantly amazed by the stupidity of some people and companies.   Let's take the call I got a few minutes ago for example.   I was minding my own business watching some tv, and I got call that came up private n my caller id.   I have a friend that comes up private so i answered it.   It was one of those scammers pretending to be from Microsoft.    The fist stupid thing they said was they were from Microsoft.   Microsoft is not going to call people that never called them, and especially not at 9 pm on a Sunday night.   Then they said they registered malware on my computer trying to get me to let them take it off the computer for me.    I know there is no malware on my computer as I have a paid security/antivirus on my computer, and malware bytes ( a very good product that I have used for years).   I also have ccleaner on my computer, and i run them all regularly.   I also know how to check my registry for errors.   I listened to what the guy said for  a bit then I cut him off with one simple question that if he can see malware on my computer he should know.   I asked him what windows i am running on my computer?   He said Microsoft windows.   I am thinking what an idiot.    I said no i mean is it windows  98  XP  7  8   9 or 10  lol I know there is no 9  I just threw that in there to see if he would tell me there is no 9.   He did not.   He kept asking me to boot up my computer.   If he could really see anything on my computer like he said he did the malware he would have know it was already up.     When he could not tell me what windows I am running  I said ok we're done here,  cause you do not know what you are talking about,and hung up on him.     These people that call you and want you to let them into your computers are idiots, or they think you are an idiot.   Either way I am not letting anyone I do not know in my computer unless I myself call them for help.   I sure am not letting someone that blocks their number in my computer so they can put things on it to make my computer act up to try to trick me into thinking I have problems that I do not, like a certain antivirus company that many use does.
