Prank Phone Call To Fake Microsoft Support Center In India

A man named Russel, repeatedly telephoned the fake Microsoft Support call center in India, posing as an Arab named Abdo, whose computer had been infected with a virus from watching pornography with goats.  Russel, a.k.a. “Abdo”, wasted so much of their time, that the Indian customer support operators became exhausted and began yelling that they weren’t Microsoft Support.
