A recorded computer scam phonecall

Lasting for just over 8 minutes this scam call was recorded so less informed people can get an idea of just what can happen to the unwary.

Thankfully the guy who received this cold call is computer savvy anyway, but recorded and passed it on for the benefit of a much wider audience. TC.

Interesting TC, thank you for that.

Listening to it makes you wonder how on earth anyone ever falls for it, but I suppose if you're not particularly tech-savvy it might be easier to believe.
