Dammit! The world is so unfair! A friend in Taranaki just received a call from a Peter Anderson with an Auckland number - he proceeded to scare the crap out of her about her computer's security breach and impending doom. He then directed her to this remote control site, and was sounding very agitated instead of urgent. She's not a techno-savvy person but thankfully had enough sense to hold him off and gave me a call. Why can't these idiots  give me a call instead?! I keep hearing of people having fun with such scammers, about time I have a bit of fun too :( Ah well... one day... maybe...

Interestingly this Peter Anderson left an Auckland (09) phone number. I wonder whose number that was! 




Android user, .NET developer, a semi-typical (not a gamer) geek, and a Bernese Mountain Dog nut!
