Hey, I’m new to this site and the scene and gotta say this is some fun. This is the first number I’ve ever got working and I thought I’d share my cherry poppin experience since I’m new and you guys might get a laugh (won’t do this every time as I’m sure this is a bit too lengthy)
Called the number and got an Indian woman. She asked for my name. Saaaam Wilkins with a solid country accent (obv not my real name or accent). On hold for a bit then she said a technician would call me back at my number.
Waited 10 minutes and didn’t get a response so I called them back. Asked why I haven’t gotten a call. Heard the dude in the background say, “Yeah yeah, I’m getting there.” Explained I need to get to work in 30 minutes so I can’t wait much longer.
Another 10 minutes pass. I call them again. This time it’s a guy (probably the one in the background). “YES I was JUST ABOUT to CALL YOU.”
“Ok jeeze, I just gotta go to work in a bit.”
“Well I can go ahead and help you out right now. Is your computer on?”
“Is it a desktop or a laptop?”
“Ok, do you see a button that says, update your security?”
“No? What? I just got a phone message (repeated a few things in the OP message). So I don’t see that.”
“Ok, so what I need you to do is look at the bottom-left of your keyboard and there should be a button that reads C-T-R-L.”
(wow, he thinks I’m really dumb)
“Ok, there’s a button right next to that which looks like some squares which is the windows key.”
“Alright, but it ain’t no windows key. I got one o’ them Roccat keyboards so it’s a cute little kitty instead. I just love this keyboard. So cool how they changed that key to their logo or whatever.”
“Yes, yes (annoyed) now I need you to press that button with one finger. While you are holding that button down reach up and press the R button but don’t let go of your other finger.”
It pulls up Run “Ok, you can let go of your fingers now”
He tells me letter-by-letter and with full phonetics “iexlbore www.supremocontrol.com.” Yes, that’s not a typo. He literally spelled it out wrong. After the error pops up he says I typed it in wrong and corrects me for the right IE window.
Then he asks me to download and install supremo which I do. He asks for my number. I confirm that it’s going to “let him fix whatever’s wrong with my computer by gettin’ in there and doing your thang?” He agrees.
At that point I FLIP to my regular straight accent and talk normally.
“Ok, so we aren’t going to go any further here because I don’t have a virtual machine set up. Get a real job you dumbass. You’ve been struck.”
“You… mother… f*cker”
Isn’t it crazy that just because I spoke with a fake southern drawl he thought I was a total and complete idiot? Hope you thought this was as funny as I did!
