The internet can be a dangerous place if you’re not careful whenever you’re browsing through websites. You will probably face malware, adware, and other types of viruses from time to time.
We get that you’re afraid of computer viruses and sometimes you probably don’t know what to do. However, it’s probably also not a good idea to contact the number that’s flashing crazily on your screen.
In most cases, you will probably end up calling a scammer and they will probably trick you into believing that they’re tech support.
Don’t believe us? The BBC ended up covering this bit. Jim Browning, a Youtuber, managed to get CCTV footage of these scammers and he sent them to the BBC.
Now, we get to see some of the footage from his Youtube channel and it’s quite interesting.
You probably wouldn’t imagine that the scammers would be working in a very ordinary looking building. In fact, many probably wouldn’t realize that a scam operation is hiding behind a call center in India.
It’s not surprising that the local authorities wouldn’t be able to find these scammers. The location is carefully hidden away and there are even safety measures made if ever the location is discovered.
Unfortunately for them, the building is equipped with CCTV cameras and any hacker could easily gain access to them and several important files.
This is how Jim Browning was able to discover the location of these scammers and even get camera footage of their operations.
At first glance, the place looks like any other call center operation that you would find. However, would a call center allow you to play video games on the job?
In fact, this agent is talking to someone while playing pacman which is highly unusual if you ask us. If anyone saw this, they would probably think that this is a joke.
Unfortunately, you would definitely be convinced that these guys are scammers once you hear the conversation.
Things get even stranger when the employees are directly paid in cash instead of receiving a check or funds from their ATM account.
Jim Browning suspects that the operations manager is doing this in order to avoid placing any records of their illegal activities.
It makes perfect sense since most of their profit comes from scamming and tricking other people out of their money.
We suggest that you guys watch this in order for you to get a good idea of these types of scams.
Of course, it’s always a good idea to avoid sketchy websites and make use of antiviruses before calling in for support.
If you ever decided to call for tech support, we suggest that you visit the official website of your computer manufacturer.
We hope that you guys stay safe as you continue to browse the internet.
