    About 1/2 a hour ago, I received a supposed call from Iolo Technologies from (303)351-5187. Iolo Technologies doesn't have my unlisted phone number. The scam didn't work, as I hung up on them. My pc's according to them are running terribly. HAH!!! My pc's and xbox are running perfectly fine. Better luck on someone else idiot scammer's. I wasn't born yesterday or the day before, for that matter.

    I love it when these criminals ring. I always play the dumb old man.
    I have a VM all set up for them with bait. I let them take docs so that I can find out where they are.
    The next step is to see if I can take over their machine.

    Well there is a lot to be learnt from them. And hopefully they use a new piece of malware.
    It's what I am in to now, Malware dis-assembly and tracking dirt bags.
