I’ve mentioned tech support scammers here before, and I think I’ve come up with the perfect solution to ruin their business model:
Waste all of their time.
If you run into a tech support scam website with an 800 number to call and you’re bored, give them a ring and make up a story! Have a great time leading the scammers on. Make some excuse about how your Internet is still dial-up and you can’t get YouTube to work. Tell them you need to renew your antivirus because you have the flu. Ask them if they offer sexual services. Whatever you can think of to waste their time and keep them from being available to scam someone else.
The number that I’ve seen most recently is (844) 544-1381.
