Final score: Scammer 0 Me 1 Emma Hallett I've had two of these calls today grrr. If you believe this info I have a nice international bridge between Canada and the United States that I'm willing to sell at a reasonable price. Silly scammers, tricks are for kids! She said it was struck by lightning.
Checked the website and it doesn't exist (www.webstoreshop.com) Also disconnected my system from the internet before I did the "eventviewer" the first caller walked me through. The only thing that seems to stop them (albeit only for a week or so) is a really loud whistle blown long and hard. After a bit the "technician" gave up on trying to get me into http://www.teamviewer.com and directed me to http://www.showmypc.com where it wouldn't load either while I whined away how slow my Jerome Segura Nicely done 2012cocoa! https://forums.techguy.org/threads/anyone-know-anything-about-backdoor-serv-fn.777073/page-2
I repeated, "I only see two letters, F and U." Then I went on a rant about scamming senior citizens and needing a real job. I kept them at bay for 35 minutes or so pretending my computer was super slow and was still downloading, etc. When I said I wasn't interested (as usual), the guy (I didn't catch the name he gave, his accent was so thick and he sounded like he was underwater) started shouting
He asked me to pay $125 for a one year subscription or $500 for lifetime service… By then I was sure this was a scam and I asked him for the For example, if the path of a registry value is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\FolderA\FolderB\KeyName2,valueC= sequentially expand the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, software, FolderA and FolderB folders and select the KeyName2 key to display the valueC value in So I never answer phone around that time.

What made me suspicious was I have all my computers notifying me before an error message is sent to MS.

He tried calling back twice, but I really could not be bothered to take the scamming call again! I think when they told me they just wanted to take care of their senior citizens they ****** me off…I will share this with everyone I know! The women are worse when it comes to understanding what they are saying. I like the idea of blasting them with an air horn or whistle.
Spyware frequently piggybacks on free software into your computer to damage it and steal valuable private information.Using Peer-to-Peer SoftwareThe use of peer-to-peer (P2P) programs or other applications using a shared network https://books.google.com/books?id=jghDAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA546&lpg=PA546&dq=Anyone+Know+Anything+About+Backdoor.serv!fn?&source=bl&ots=42fOyM4vup&sig=p28o0byoFLVIY-jVNdeoRq5s68U&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi76L7UpczRAhWlzIMKHbadAcQQ I told him it was a scam and to power off his computer. The left pane displays folders that represent the registry keys arranged in hierarchical order. Interesting that he would threaten me, though.
This window consists of two panes. Nothing stops them - if you tell them that you know it's a scam, they get rude, swear and call me a liar (for what, I'm not sure?). A DoS attack can commonly result in a server being flooded with more network traffic than it is capable of processing. If you let them have access to your computer they can add files and programs like keyboard scanners which can then give them access to bank passwords, etc etc etc.
I explained I had no idea what that was. This scam is a well-oiled machine which starts off with the alleged Microsoft representative asking you to turn on your computer to perform some checks for errors. Because of this, spyware, malware and adware often store references to their own files in your Windows registry so that they can automatically launch every time you start up your computer.To The same number that worked the day before would often be disconnected the next day or so.
Would like to figure a way to squelch callers like this. But then I realized that I can have some fun with them. I authorize the message so they should not have any error records.
Can't wait for the next call…. This still didn't deter him. These days trojans are very common. So far we have been able to recover the money lost and saved the computers.If these types of scams are world wide there should be measures to take to stop these
Even after I read them this article they still tried. When it first happened, I had not heard of the scam, but I used to work in IT for a BIG oil company - Microsoft's biggest customer at the time - Extremely informative and very helpful! But a large portion of these scams as well as sim of our unemployment issues could potentially be solved by keeping 100% of the tech support and assistance programs for apple,
He went through the same exact process as described above and when he came to have me type in the "www.teamviewer.com" I countered with telling him I am with the police Join over 733,556 other people just like you! Scarily they knew my name and address, said there calling from Microsoft. I told him I knew it's a scam and doesn't he feel bad for trying to scam people, and how does he sleep at night, he told me to Shut up,
My rule of thumb - if it is real they will give me their phone number to call back. He attempted to pull it up (I had already given him remote control of my pc), but instead of "CallYourTech" he loaded "PCHelpAndSuppot". Most spyware definitions apply not only to adware, pornware and ‘riskware' programs, but to many trojans as well. He wanted me to delete the files.
oldie I got a similar call last week in Germany.I commented on their Indian accent, but they said, they were from Glasgow with Indian ancestors.
