[LUG] Scam callers


Recently both my wife and I have received scam phone calls. No surprise there and no, we did not fall for it. The main reason for knowing that they were scams is that the caller, of course, assumed that we use Microsoft Windows. We don't.

It had never occurred to me before, but one good reason you can give someone for moving over to Linux is better protection from scammers. Many of the programs that they try to get you to download just won't work. They won't even install. And you have a chance for a bit of fun with the caller.

Just a thought
