Default Re: Fake Microsoft phone scammers caught out!

How are they going to effect any real cessation of these calls when they all originate from India?

I get at least 1 call a day from "Air Duct Cleaning"... I'm always polite to them, because it's never the same person, but as long as there are call centers there, the calls will keep coming.
