Phone call from "microsoft" Scam

Got a phone call today from "microsoft" saying that my computer was loaded with corrupt prefetch files. :pfff:
I just played along and told them to call again later. i was not asked to install anything or to lend control of my PC to someone else. I have a very strong feeling that these guys are scammers.
anything I should do?
