Pretty much had this guy call my house and tell me to go to event viewer so I could see errors.
I had seen this scam on the news before where they convince computer-n00bs that they have a serious error and then they get them to use teamviewer so they can take remote control of said computer.

After telling him I knew it was a scam and that I'm not a computer-tard and after I hung up, he called back to tell me I was doing a bad thing etc lulz

Has anyone else had this?

shiroshadows: Has anyone else had this?


"Has anyone else had this"? There is an ongoing discussion that was created exactly one year ago and still alive. 

Please people, look at least the first page of a forum, or use our search page before posting. This would save mod time, and people could find a lot of information.
