Yeah these sort of phone calls can be a worry for elderly people. My Mother keeps getting them and depsite how many many times I've told her just to hang up the phone, she seems to think it's actually Microsoft calling them.

But yeah, demand to talk to their supervisor, ask them what country they're calling from and what address is the office they're calling from because you charge $9.95 per minute of your time to talk to them and you'll have send them the invoice. It quickly stops them talking.
