I guess we're not the only people to be plagued by calls of this kind.  A few weeks ago we were getting a constant stream of them.  Asking the caller for his Microsoft payroll number seemed to make them hang up.  The upshot is that, if you're gullible enough to do what they ask, you put your computer and possibly home network at risk.

The WIndows Secrets newsletter recently ran an article on this, at http://windowssecrets.com/forums/showthread.php/141855-Hoax-calls-from-quot-Microsoft-quot.  I particularly liked the photo of one of the call centre staff responsible.
