Video anatomy of a Windows support scam

Here is an excellent video by Carey Holzman that shows an actual support scam telephone call. Mr. Holzman toys with the scammer, but you can see how it all develops. I had a client who actually fell for one of these, but when he caught on and refused to pay, the scammer deleted all of his files. Fortunately, I was able to recover them all for him. This is a long video, but well worth watching.
