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.
