I just read the thread about the latest email scam. I had a similar experience on a recent phone call:
 
Me: Hello?
 
Scammer: (Strong Hindu accent) Hello sir. Are you the operator of your computer?
 
Me: Yes.
 
Scammer: Your computer has been identified as being the source of disruptive network traffic.
 
Me: Really? How did you identify that it was my computer? Do you have the IP address that is the source of the problem?
 
Scammer: (Yes, he really said this.) The address is 192.168.1.101.
 
Me: I see. Good Bye.
 
I suspect that he was trying to sell some sort of unneeded cleanup software. I've had a number of calls recently that all share the same basic theme.
Nevertheless, a site local IP?
Give me a break.
