Shoddy PC repair tech caught in sting operation.
I don't know why, but I get some kind of perverse pleasure from watching scammers get caught in the act. Maybe it's the consumer watchdog in me? Anyway, in the UK there's a fabulous consumer show called House Of Horrors. This house has been specially constructed by the trading standards folks, and contains dozens and dozens of hidden cameras. It's a mousetrap for the crooked servicepeople, from washing machine repairmen to roofers and builders. There's nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
In this particluar episode I'm about to show you, they take a look at a very 'dodgy' PC repair technician. They set up a computer with a minor problem - a loose board. It's a 1 minute fix, if that. So here you can see what takes place in the first video, and then how the scammer gets caught out in the second. Isn't it great when payback bites you in the butt??
