Today i got a call from a scammer claiming to be a Microsoft tech telling me my computer is infected, and the hackers got remote access to my computer so i have played dumb to find out what he was trying to suggest me to Install. He wanted me to install Ammyy fake Anti Malware software. After telling him i know exactly what he is trying to do his reply was " Oh Oh. Sorry Sir. I will not bother you again."
I just got a call from him. Actually there was a lady on the phone first and when I couldn't understand her she said she would get her manager on put this guy on the phone. The red flag immediately into the conversation was that he couldn't speak English clearly at all. The woman I started out with was even worse and I would have hung up immediately if she kept talking. The guy had the heavy indian/pakistani accent but not the slow and clear pronunciation that real trained support techs have. I could honestly only understand 30% of the words he was saying. I asked him how he knew which computer at our house might be infected (I couldn't understand his answer), how he got my phone number (basically; oh we can see everything you do online we're microsoft), and then I hung up on him. He tried calling back ten minutes later.
What I really don't get is that at least from the guy I spoke to, how does this scam work? I mean if I can't understand him how is some old granny going to follow his instructions and let him infect her computer?
I had a call from them a week or so ago. Led him on a bit til he got into the remote screen stuff then asked him to perform some "oral action" before I continued. Wow! Never heard an indian scream and curse so much. hahahahaha
Ammyy does not distribute fake anti malware software. Their product is remote control software. They have warnings about this scam on their home page. The scum are not calling from Ammyy, the scum are simply using ammyy software to gain remote control of your PC. Here's an audio of how the chat goes along with a very creative way of busting their stones. »soundcloud.com/scotttech1/ammyy-···ng-to-be
