Hello sir, this is Mike from Microsoft Technical Services

Instructions for avoiding tech support phone scams are provided by Microsoft but don’t you wish you could do more? For the last couple of days, I’ve been getting calls from Mike. In his heavy accent, he tells me that there have been multiple reports coming from my computer indicating that I have a problem. I say, “Really? My computer is sending you messages? I’m sitting right there, why doesn’t it tell me directly? Are you saying that my computer doesn’t trust me? What else is my computer saying to you? I assure you that whatever my computer told you is probably a lie. It’s probably upset because I just installed a new modem. I didn’t want to break them up. They have been together for so long but my internet provider told me that my computer would be happier if I found it a new modem. Mike do you think that’s it? Is my computer telling you stuff to get back at me? Mike…Are you there…” I wonder why he hung up.

Are there Christian Computer Scientists who rely on prayers instead of virus protection software?
