Well you do find users who are like that and don't realise what has happened or what they have done, just a fact of life.

Though I do like the answer which was chosen as the "Best Answer" :thumbsup: :flowers:

Well, it was kind of funny, but we shouldn't really be laughing in an ideal world. That person just got ripped off and had their computer damaged. If anything we should really be helping prevent this from happening. Although still, the evil side of me can't stop lol-ing.

Its sad indeed, how the bad guys are ripping innocent people through social engineering.
Its clear the person is innocent and does not understand much technical garbage. I think the answers given did confuse her more.

I have to confess I had a good laugh on it as well, but to be honest, it is very sad that that answer was elected as "best". And before laughing too much at anothers expense (talking about myself now, dont take offense), you may want to read the following article. Those rogues have the most amazing social engineering techniques.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...p;#entry1341269

My point is, it isnt so hard to believe them. For a fact, most rogues look way better than the average AV/AS application.

BTW, the reason I ended up at BC was..... yups, a rogue infection!
