    a man with a thick african (not african american...i mean african) accent told me that he was from microsoft windows support and that over the past two months, they have received many messages from my computer saying there were errors and viruses.

    i said, "my computer?"

    he said, "yes. your computer is going to crash in one hour."

    i said, "you're calling from microsoft windows support?"

    he said, "yes."

    i said, "i use a mac, faggit."

    he said, "may i talk to mr. dinkus mayhem?"

    i said, "no," and sat there silent.

    he asked again. i said no again. he hung up.

    legit? :shit:

    sounded like you.

    seriously though, if some dude is going to run a scam trying to lure stupid old people in the midwest into giving them their personal information in a call like this, you can't use a guy with a thick african accent. old white midwesterners will never trust that guy.
