I've had a few of these calls in recent months. A couple of times I've strung them along for a bit, to find out a bit more about what they get people to do, and to generally waste their time. Then they hang up pretty quickly after I tell them I repair computers for a living.

I haven't had any phone calls, but I've had a "ransom" gimmick where they demand you purchase (aka tell them your financial information) their anti virus to "fix" the problems they've found.

Interesting, good share. I think I found a freeware program a while back - perhaps it was still in development, but it allegedly had capabilities like the third video. I don't know what I did with it, but it was on an older Windows XP Os anyway.

I remember watching a video a while back from some guy messing with a scammer.

End of any racist discussion.
