"Remove bad sectors from the network wall"
"We will give you all the anti-virus anti-trojan anti-hacking anti-spyware anti-phising anti-???? programs"
They really say that too, as if we don't know 1 program will do it all.
"We will install the SSL advanced encryption on your network and upgrade from 128 bit to 2048 bit"
"1 year $xxx.99 3 years $xxx.99 5 years $xxx.99 lifetime $xxxx.99" and each time it is a made up amount, depending on how much money they think they can grift from you.
Shows me stopped services, types 'tree' in my DOS prompt after cd \'ing to the root lol and tells me its a scanner, shows me good ol' event viewer and tells me each line is someone hacking my computer... who buys that?!
I think what bothers me the most is the tons of other guys screaming in the background, and you can hear them saying they are from all sorts of different companies like Cisco and Microsoft. They're so clueless they don't realize that's a red flag to any who would have been gullible enough to pay them in the first place.
We are 1 good tutorial away from being organized enough to capture these scammers IP's and list respective local law enforcement agencies in their areas to report them. What they do from there, well... we can only hope.
