re: Security Expert Fools, Records Fake Antivirus Scammers
One of my users got a call from these cons, but was smart enough to only play along a little to see what they were up to.- She actually got the guy to give her his phone number, even though caller ID came back blocked.- Now, every now and again, I call him back and mess with him.- Playing along with his script until I felt like turning it around and creatively insulting him and belittling him in various ways.- If anyone else would like to join in on the fun, while the number is still active, it's 209-965-7943.- They harass us and our users, now its our turn!
