Funny Prank on Windows Technical Support Scammer

If you have ever received a call from someone in India claiming to be calling from Windows Technical Support, you will love this post. I cannot stand those calls, and worse, I feel sorry for the people they scam. They call telling you that they received a report, and something is wrong with your “Windows Computer”. Don’t worry though, because they will help you fix it.

They usually want you to grant them access to your computer. NEVER DO THAT!!! They tell you that you have a virus, or outdated drivers and your computer is going to crash. Then they want money to fix your computer and they are ripping off tens of thousands of people every day.

So, I thought rather than just hanging up on this guy, giving him time to scam other people, I would turn the tables and have some fun with him. This would tie him up from pulling his scam on others, and give us all a bit of entertainment.

I recorded the call and it is quite funny. Best of all, even though these scammers can get very vicious and go into profanity laced rants (Yes, that has happened before with another of their scams for a medical mesh product), this call is G rated. Hope you like it.

So what did you think? Let me know if you receive these calls and if you have ever done anything like this. I would love to hear all about it.

    So funny! My husband got one of those calls a couple of weeks ago. If he gets one again, I’ll make sure to tell him to ask the guy if they’ll wash our windows. You may have started a movement! šŸ˜‰ You know you’re doing something right when the scammer tells you he doesn’t have time to talk to you anymore!! LOL

    By the way, I don’t know how you did that with what sounded like a straight face. I would have cracked!

    We have never gotten a call from someone trying to fix our computer, but I found out they were quite common when I discovered that there are a lot of YouTube videos of people responding to them. Your video is one of my favorites. I don’t know how you didn’t start laughing, especially when he said he would paint your house for $5,000.

    That was ridiculous. Thank goodness for caller id.

    I get these calls all the time. I think it’s hilarious when they introduce themselves as “Bob” or “Bruce.” I just scream at them and tell them to quit calling, but I like your method better LOL!
