Final moments of a scam phonecall

I had a call from an Indian fellow called "Steve from Microsoft". I don't think it was Monkey-dance-Steve, but another one. He claimed to be a security expert.

He started by having me open Windows Event Viewer to look for "infections". I counted 168 errors and 87 warnings before he asked me to stop.

Next, I was directed to a "logmein" website. We tried a few times to get the connection working, before I admitted I had a Mac... #microsoft #scam #security
