IT Scammer vs IT department.

I like to keep scammers on the line as long as I can so as to reduce the time they have available for their next victims. When they realise they're being led by the nose they get very angry.

I very nearly got scammed yesterday, i phoned an Apple support
number and did not realize until later that they were not apple
support people at all, what saved my bacon was a young Woman
on the Bendigo bank network that picked up i was being scammed,
she phoned me a short time later to inform me of the scam, she had
this mob on the radar so when they tried to access my account she
blocked it then told me she was going to kill my card and would issue
a new one next week.
Talk about on the ball i was really impressed. =D= =D= =D= =D=

But not Bomgar itself? Someone pretending to be them?
calls from consumers who mistakenly complied with callers alleging to represent Microsoft, Apple, Dell and more recently Bomgar Corporation.

Right Dreams, they operate under the Apple support umbrella but present
themselves as Bomgard corporation.
