    SCAM - Slightly New Variant of the Tech Support Scam

    I was working from home today and got a call from someone with a heavy Indian accent from a very noisy call centre.

    The lead in was slightly different to the usual Windows scams which is why I'm posting about it, this guy said as follows:

    "Hi, I'm from your ISP and calling about your internet connection"

    As soon as I asked which ISP he rang off.

    You would think they would anticipate a question like "which ISP". I wonder if he even knew what "I S P" stood for.

    It may just be a try on, if they're rumbled move straight onto the next call. It's the numbers game sooner or later someone will fall for it.
