Hacked Gadgets gets another cold call from Scammers called Global IT and Global PC Protection – Part 3

at 1:13 pm. Filed under Computer Hacks, Funny Hacks


You think these scammers from Global PC Protection (they often call themselves Global IT) would have me on their do not call list after the fun we had with them in Part 1 and part 2. I figured that would be the last we ever heard of them. Well to my surprise I got another cold call from one of their agents warning me that my computer has once again been sending them errors and warnings.

I just had a bit of fun with them before I again told them who I was. Guess what, they were not very pleased about this and they started to delete a bunch of system files, browsed to a porn site and attempted to format my hard drive. I guess they still didn’t realize that they were just playing around in a VM.


The video is quite long, here are the highlights.

  • 0:00 Initial description of problem.
  • 13:09 Peter Anderson tries to convince me that he is calling from New York.
  • 15:46 Peter Anderson with a new voice answers my call.
  • 17:00 The first Peter Anderson calls back. 
  • 35:30 Virtual Machine setup shown.
  • 18:10 They once again try to make up junk about what the Support Connection Code is for.
  • 20:39 VM hard drive issues, for some reason the virtual hard drive isn’t automatically growing as it should.
  • 26:30 Cleaning the old VM was talking a long time, I just made a new copy of the VM image to start with a fresh copy.
  • 29:30 They connect to my system using Team Viewer.
  • 37:42 Their technician has remote control of the system and “checks” the computer out.
  • 48:02 I give Peter a hard time for accidentally hanging up the phone on me.
  • 57:05 I show them who I am, they hang up but stay connected to the computer.
  • 58:35 They talk about what they think of me.
  • 59:27 Start deleting files while they talk to me.
  • 1:01:50 The load up a porn site and look around, then they hang up the phone while remaining logged onto my computer.
