Many Lols were had.
Hack their shit and delete system32 while they're in ur pc. Tell them u can help them out but they need to install teamview. Lulz galore
The last time these guys called me I told them to fuck off before they could finish telling me my pc was fucked up. Fucking indian bastards
They sure do. Happened to me, but I got suspicious and looked it up on my phone to see if it was a scam. Soon as I found out that it was, I hung up, turned off the laptop, and took the battery out for good measure. Motherfuckers.
Fuck off anon, I'm a look-on-the-bright-side type of guy. I had my suspicions that it was a scam from the beginning of the call, but I figured there was no harm in humoring them, up until they asked for access to my computer.
They had already gotten access to my laptop, but as soon as I saw them fucking around in there, I shut it off. Yeah, I know, dumbass anon is a dumbass. Anyway, I was just trying to be thorough.
Nah, they didn't ask that. And I've never actually needed help from any tech support guys, so I didn't know right away that that wasn't normal, or that it was a scam, although I did suspect. In retrospect, it was a bit of an out of character move for me.
Don't feel too bad. It's pretty crazy how easy it is to convince someone to let you in to their computer. Being in IT, I couldn't believe it at first, especially how easy it is to get into official computers and files by just calling and asking...scary really.
Anyway, I woulda done what op did and boxed him in a VM and watched him for a while. Totally worth my time listen to him try to BS. What did he try to say was wrong?
These people called me a couple times telling me there was something wrong with my Windows, everytime they called I claimed I had a mac with no Windows but they would repeat saying " der is a problehm wif ur windows computer".
How the fuck do you make them call you? Never had these sort of peeps calling me.
Ummm what? Anyone can access anything if you give them permission...
