New scam threat


Hey everyone.

I’m used to getting tech support scam calls, but the one I got the other day threatened me with one thing I hadn’t heard before. Not only would I lose my files and all that stuff if I didn’t call them back, but my PC would actually — get this — become “obsolete.”

That’s a new one. Would they somehow, remotely, downclock my CPU to 500 MHz and disable 75% of my RAM?

    “Become obsolete.” Wow. That’s one helluva threat right there. Yeah, I’m not sure how they would pull that off, personally. Break in and swap your box for a P4?
