Played the long con this morning--72 minutes with these fellows. Played the "Fast Support send an invalid response" game and went through 3 techs before they concluded my IP was infected with wiruses and spywares from Russia (seriously--he said Russia). They gave up and offered me "network services" for $199.99 USD a month. I agreed wholeheartedly of course--was passed to another fine young man who offered me "lifetime support" on all of my dewices. And again I agreed wholeheartedly--because I would save so much money! (It's all about saving money!) My total order for all dewices was a bargain of $999.99 USD. I calmly gave out my fake credit card info which they promptly ran. When it was declined I simply told them they must have made a mistake--they never asked for the name on the card (LOL) They then called the bank--and I told them I had already called on the other line to get it approved from STRONGTECHSUPPORT. I asked for his email so I could send him the "confirmation" from the back and he gave it to me: [email protected] I "emailed" (not really) it to him and when he didn't receive it, I told him his email server must be corrupted--perhaps with a wirus. So, he asked for another card and we went through all of this again. They got increasingly agitated and they kept switching "Senior Technicians to Billing Department to Senior Supervisor...etc.
Finally, after over an hour of being incredibly patient, polite, and "not knowing anything about computers"--I busted him and revealed.
Nothing like the sound of stunned silence--I thought I heard tears as he hung up.
