I a Dell Inspiron 530 desktop computer. Would it be possible, to put a virtual machine on there? Most of the time I will have it turned off. I will mostly only turn it on if I get a tech support scam call. I like talking to scammers. I try to keep them on as long as possible. If I can host a VM on the desktop, then I will let the scammer to loggin to the VM. While he is on there, I will use wireshark to get his IP address. Then I will put that in who.is. That will tell me where the scammer is located, and what ISP he uses. The VM doesn't have to be Windows Vista. It could be Xp, or earlier.
If I can have a VM on my desktop, then I will email my cousin, and ask him if he can login to my VM. That will be a test. To see if I can do it right. If I can't have a VM on a 3GB computer, then I will try someting else to keep the scammer on the phone longer. Last time I had the scammer on for 24, to 25 minutes.
