They claimied to be from Microsoft and had detected a malware infection on my PC and were going to help me fix it. I kept them on the line as long as I could to keep them from bothering anyone else. I'd never received a scam call like this before, much less one so blatant, so I'm wondering what should one do in a situation like this?"
