    about 10 years ago they hijacked my computer. i had to pay those pukes 300 to release it. I called pnc back and told them i never allowed it. They called me for 2 years. Yes i'm an old fool. But i'm not a dumb old fool.

    Check out a guy on Twitch named Kitboga. He actually scams these scammers. Pretty funny stuff.

    I like to mess with these guys for a while. Eventually till them to fukk off and they reply with something along the lines of, "oh I go fukk you wife." Pretty good entertainment.

    Sad to think there are people that fall for these scams.
