They will now be sold to call centres in India and many more will be getting the "Your PC is infected and you are Mr Ben Dover of 34 wrinkled Lane"

I had one call me yesterday. He stated my name and phone number, and when I told him I wasn't whoever it was he was asking for he said "But you must be !" very rudely. I said "Well I am not, head" and he hung up on me.

Apparently they use the phone book. Was watching a video on it the other day. How to reverse scam a scammer. The best one is where the guy on the phone convinces the call centre worker to run Syskey. He then locks him out of the bios, the boot sequence and the motherboard Turns out it was a Dell server that ran the entire scam.
