    Some professional scambaiters have clever tricks to trash the scammer's computer(s), needing a reinstall. That's pretty funny.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Though to be fair, it might all be staged. Who can tell these days?

    Interesting. I didn't follow everything that was going on, but it certainly looked plausible.

    Its shocking how many fall for these scams , not just the ederly .
    I used to get asked to, down South.
    Oh but you have to do maintenance on my PC they'd say.
    I used to say I don't do this, you're not a server or a business running a network, you can do basic scans and stuff yourself and if you do need something done, then you call me.
    I don't sign people up to contracts for BS.

    So it would be easy to scam people like that
