ahh I had one of these phonecalls last summer, was 5th time they'd phoned- but i'd never answered before, I had them on the phone for two hours pissing around pretending i was a computer illiterate moron, before revealing I knew exactly what they were trying to pull and to piss off- they never phoned again ;) from me however they wanted remote access lol talk about making it obvious-they wanted me to sign into bank account or whatever ready to make a payment-then give them remote access hahahahahaha wow I really hope no one falls for that.
edit:oh I saw the end of the video.
