About 4 months ago, I got a call on my land line from what I (at the time) assumed was a Microsoft impersonator. (Indian guy tells you something's wrong with your PC.) I lost my temper and insulted him before dropping the phone.
Last month I got another call from what I assumed was another scammer (because he told me he was from Microsoft and that my PC was compromised.), and he knew my last name. I was stupid enough to confirm him assumption.
And now my Internet security (BitDefender) is telling me that someone is trying to scan my ports.
I'm nervous and I think I've pissed a criminal off. I'd like to know if I'm just being paranoid.
