Was browsing the web when I accidentally clicked on a link. It redirected me to an obviously fake "Windows virus alert" page with a robotic voice warning me about the virus on my computer, as the page repeatedly asked me for my administrator password in broken English. How do I know it's fake?

I'm running Ubuntu.

I was given a phone number to call, and I want to bait this guy. Any advice?

Don't would be my advise, delete it if he thinks he has a live lead, you will be most likely find your self with more emails than you can handle.
Here speak someone who click on an attachment in a email from a scammer and finished up down loading ransom ware.
Have a post on this subject.

As the name of the site suggests, we only do advanced fee fraud (a.k.a. 419). Unless you are very savvy about setting up secure lines/phones, etc., your best route is to leave these lads alone.

You should also have someone who's an expert in such things give your computer a good sweep to be sure your friend didn't leave any critters behind.
