As long as I am of sound mind, I can’t imagine ever falling for one of these computer support scams. Unfortunately, a lot of people aren’t me and still do. There’s sadly not a whole lot that can or is being done to stop any of it, which makes videos like this fairly valuable. Not only do they disrupt and unmask the scam operation and cost it time and money, but they’re also educational and quite fascinating.
Thanks to what I assume is some shoddy security on their part, Jim Browning managed to get himself some pretty deep access to one of those Indian Microsoft scam outfits. We get to see their office and watch them in action, as well as eventually see them get temporarily owned at the end. If there’s any justice in this world they’ll be permanently shut down and all rot in jail for a while, but for now I guess we’ll just have to take what we can get.
