Technical support tricks are, sadly, a to a great degree regular scourge. Most such tricks are what might as well be called rebel antivirus assaults, which attempt to terrify shoppers into buying useless security software. Both sorts of tricks attempt to make the shopper trust that the guest is by one means or another connected with Microsoft or with a security organization, and every guest tries to persuade or alarm the buyer into surrendering control over his or her PC.
At YouTube are getting already more than 18,000 videos and recordings of tech support scams found. Google also provides 445,000 hits for the exact phrase "Tech Support Scam".

By the large count of videos found at YouTube and search results in Google everybody can see how risky the tech support scam is. With small and easy tools can get the source of the call and the remote access to the victims computer located.
On the other site is the problem that with the amount of scam is India losing their remaining reputation. I think that it would not last long until an example is set for this amount of scam coming from there. Real companies are already not able to make some legal business because nobody trust them for the amount of scammers coming from their country.
Opposite round is everybody guilty by himself if he get scammed from someone located in India. A simple Google search and everybody can find out from where the most of the scam is coming from.
