Australian, American and Canadian authorities have joined forces to foil a major international phone scam, known as the Microsoft Imposter scam.
The scam, which involves people pretending to be Microsoft employees offering to fix computer viruses, is thought to have ripped off tens of thousands of people in six countries.
US authorities this week won court orders to close down and freeze funds of alleged US-based parties involved in the scheme.
Aw, I am going to miss these guys. I had a call from one the other week. Once he told me my computer had a virus I pretended to lose my shit. Crying, Screaming, wishing for death. Lasted about 5 mins before he hung up.
