If you don’t want to go through all the hassle of disguising a virtual machine and getting it ready, then look no further. In this post, I present my pre-made scambaiting virtual machine and their required software:
I created this virtual machine for VMware so it works best with VMware products, e.g. VMware Player (free) or Workstation Pro (paid) to run. I converted it to VirtualBox as well which should work, just I don't know if it's fully disguised. Download the .7z file depending on which version you want. To unpack this archive, you'll need 7-Zip (download link below). Open VMware and click on 'Open' and select the .vmx file. I set RAM to 4 GB, depending on how much physical RAM you have installed, change it up to 8 GB for better performance. Don't assign more than 50% of your physical resources to the VM. The default user is *Ben*, password is *root*. This virtual machine has BestX Keylogger installed to see what the scammer is typing. To see the interface, open the Run box with ⊞ Win + R, then type unhide. If that doesn't work you need to re-install BestX Keylogger (https://bestxsoftware.com/). Also, I included a fake popup if you need one. It's located on the desktop as 'Micerosoft' link. You can edit the number in the HTML.
The features supported by the processors in this machine are different from the features supported by the processors in the machine on which the virtual machine state was saved.
An error occurred while restoring the CPU state from file “C:\Users\person\Documents\VMs</s>\vmware\Neep Win10\Win10 Scambaiting by NeePWin10 Scambaiting by NeeP-Snapshot4.vmsn”
An error caused the restore operation to fail. Cancel the restore operation and correct the error, or discard the snapshot’s state and power off. The saved snapshot will not be affected.
If you receive this message, you most likely have an Intel CPU and since I'm using an AMD CPU, the saved snapshot won't resume as the CPU doesn't get virtualized properly. This is no big deal. Just discard the snapshot's state and reboot. Don't forget to take a snapshot of the VM once you are ready.
