« on: November 19, 2010, 06:35:24 PM »

hi all.
just had a phone call from help bsp. he said we see you computer is running slow and we can help you fix it.
i asked him who he was calling and did not know i also asked him how he knew my computer was running slow has we did not have the internet, long silence. i then said so this is a scam call and was dialing the police as we spoke. he hung up for some reason. <*<
all the best

Had this one a couple of times now myself , its been traced back to a call center in India I think certainly the two people I've spoken to have sounded Indian or Asian. Think the last guy would have needed new eardrums tho after the shouting down the phone he got from me lol , can't stand fraudsters like this
