Re: Strange and worrying telephone call

sry i did mean THE REAL HUSTLE on bbc3. amazing what they get away with when using Social engineering. one i was amased by is when they stood out side pc world with police badges saying they where investagiting some one who worked there using a skimmer device in the store and managed to get the customers to stand outside for 10 minutes to write down all there credit card deatils on a form.
i know reporting it will probaly not result in much happening but least if you hear in the news ect later on of some one fooling for this and losing all the funds from there bank account. least you can say you tried to make the people who are paid to stop these crimanals aware of the scam.
