The one I used when called by the scammers was "if you know there's a virus on my PC then you can tell me the name of it". There actually used to be a virus on my PC, in an encrypted zip file. Sophos were kind enough to name it after me after I sent it to them along with the instructions on how to remove it from an infected PC.
