Caller: This is Microsoft Security. You are downloading a virus to our server and we need access to your computer to ensure it causes no further problems.
Me: Really? Well, first, who is the head of security for Microsoft?
Caller: That’s none of your business.
Me: Well, he’s a friend of mine and you should know his name if this call is legitimate.
