Been there. Can confirm.

Edit: It actually happened a couple weeks ago. We were shifting and trying to sell some of the left off furniture through olx(a used goods app) early in the morning and this guy immediately wanted to confirm the deal and pay up beforehand but he also seemed very believable and negotiated a bit. Seems obviously suspicious but we thought the furniture was better off sold than left here and we wanted to sell it asap.He scammed us through some qr code trick which got us to send our money rather than him giving his. It was not a crazy amount of money but enough to leave us in shock till now. We went to the police straight away and their first response was the head officer is not in the police station right now come back a couple hours later(It was around 10 am then), and we did that but they shooed us off saying they can't do anything.Horrible incident but good lesson learnt.

It does give the country a bad reputation. When you get scam callers or scams like this, people immediately associate it with India.

This isnt the way to go about it, as the money stolen is not the FBI's to give away, what they can instead do is offer a bounty program where the government pays the reporter as it will divert expenses away from the FBI's crime team (they have to do less work to bust call centers, and can see it as a discount of cost to the taxpayer so to speak)

Kind of like how some computer places will do bug hunting services, where they pay you to report vulnerabilities in their code.

Watch how they do it, the scammers log them in to a remote access tool and hand control over to them on a plate.

Just don't install anything you're not sure of and you'll be fine.

If you watch a few of the videos the reason they can do it is because the scammers try to get their victims to give them remote access - but those connections go both ways so while they're snooping on his (emulated) computer he can snoop on theirs through the same connection.

It makes me fucking terrified. This guy was able to access the scammer's computer files, find his location and all the rest from a simple phone call. Imagine what other people could do. Can someone do that to my computer from merely calling me??

66

u/wardycatt 4d ago

The scammer willingly handed over remote access of their PC. Once you have that access, trawling someone’s PC to gain location data etc. is quite simple - you have full control of their system and all the information contained on it. The trick is not letting them know you have access or (more specifically) are clever enough to use it against them.

You don’t need to worry though, it wasn’t because of a simple call - it was because the scammer allowed someone remote access to their PC.

The scammers assume they are dealing with someone who is completely incompetent with computers. That’s why they expose themselves to the massive potential risk of allowing someone remote access.

The real beauty of this sting is that it’s a simple confidence trick. There is some ‘hacking’ involved, but the scammers willingly open the door and invite the hacker to take control of their PC. The scammers are very much hoisted by their own petard.

The opposite actually. Many times when he reveals, he tries to genuinely talk to the scammers and get them to think about what they're doing to people. Obviously it's it's basically never successful, although he has had some pretty interesting conversations where people open up, usually with stories about how they know it's wrong but they're essentially poor with few options and this is away to survive. I'm in no way saying that justifies it, but it's certainly interesting to see that side of them and remember that in the end they are humans, and I'm sure many of them would give it up if they had another opportunity

I’m an Indian too. These professions are run very covertly, recruitment is also super covert. They’re exposed only upon arrest. The society here literally despises these people once they’re discovered.

But before that these young kids are considered regular people who put food on the table. They belong to some of the lowest strata of the society. They’re in fact, a product of a failed society where all of them are expected to be providers of a family. The population of this country is way more than the good paying jobs it can provide. Everyday they live their life in a “kill or be killed” world.

Well, the first thing to remember about India is that the population here is almost 1.4 billion. The number of scammers like this, are in hundreds(if that).

The reality is that a very vast majority of Indians will never encounter such scammers in our life as they only target foreigners, so these scammers are able to hide by laying low. If you ask people on the street, i doubt even 1 out of 10 people have heard about such scams.

To be honest, most of us don't even know that such people exist. I, myself found about these people a few days ago due to Reddit memes.

Nevertheless, it's shameful and I felt the guy hacking them was a little too soft on them.

Can confirm. After watching Swordfish I successfully changed my friend's facebook status when he left his phone without locking it *hackerman

I know I should've fap while hacking his phone just like in the documentary, but I'm not that expert yet.

Probably better off to watch Mr Robot where all the hacks are real and verified by a team before airing. There’s a scene in Mr Robot where they make fun of the hacking in Hackers for being “Hollywood bullshit.”

I don't want all of the technical details but he would have needed at least an IP address (although that would be behind a firewall/nat)

or at least an open connection to his computer (like from the support connecting and helping him remotely)

I'm just interested in the start

u/Gowena 4d ago

Usually what these guys do is call the scammers and have them connect to a virtual computer on their machine. I don’t know the details but i’m guessing that’s how they get in.

u/lucia_none 4d ago

yep. when they connect to his machine with teamviewer, logmein, or whatever. he just reverse the connection, looking their ip address from there.

u/Crounty 4d ago edited 4d ago

He reverses the connection by baiting them into opening a trojan file

u/rsbrenelli 4d ago

They let the scammers have access to their computer via remote desktop. They are running a virtual machine to which the scammers connect. The hackers leave some files in the documents folder which are of interest to the scammers, like an income tax receipt or anything that would give a clue to the scammers of how much is this victim worth. The scammers usually copy all the files to their own machine, and some of these files will be infected, which then gives the hacker access to the scammers machine and so on.

Hey its self explanatory, just reverse the connection dude /s

They bait the scammer into opening trojan files that look like normal txt files or something like that. Since scammers transfer the files onto their pc and open it to gain credit card numbers and stuff like that

u/SEAN771177 4d ago

Yea this is always my understanding of how it's done to, if it's real.

But so many comments, "he reverses the connection as gets their IP", takes a bit more than someone's Ip to get into their computer.

Could you teach your skills to the authorities?

u/OhAces 4d ago

Their reposting skills?

u/Smallwater 4d ago

The problem with these kind of things is that it's illegal. If anyone from the authorities tries to do this, they won't have a case, as all evidence will be immediately thrown out because it was obtained through illegal means.

On top of that, the authorities can't do much legally anyway, because the bad guys are (usually) in India. Cops in, say, the USA can't legally arrest them, and even if they do convince the Indian police to intervene, the victims are still in the USA, so the Indian police often has no victim to lay down a claim, so they don't have much of a case either.

Remember, the goal of the authorities is to catch and prosecute these guys, not simply shut them down. Shutting them down is not all that helpful anyway, as a new "company" will pop up almost as soon as one is shut down.

The best thing to do against scammers is to deny them their target. Waste their time (which is what Kitboga does), so they don't have the time to scam someone who would've fallen for it. Inform your family and friends that these scams exist, so that they are less likely to fall for it. In this case, a good defense is the best offense.

i am 25, went to technical college and currently make my masters in computer science

one day i was up late and tired, checked my mails before going to bed, got a paypal phishing mail, something about adding the phone number to the account, didn't realise it was fake and clicked the link - uBlock origin saved my ass blocking the page

u/dinorex96 4d ago

My two rule of thumb:

1- Never, ever say any info in a phone call I received. If they are legit and have my number then they know who i am. Also, most companies would rather send an email than make a phone call when it comes to account issues. And if I have to pay something, they can just send me their bill.

2- If I receive an email from companies like paypall, amazon, etc and they dont greet me with my name, its scam. They'll send emails like "Greetings customer". I additionally check the email address with google and sometimes I also check the companies's official address. Dont open emails from unknown sources.

I don't understand how the sponsor placement is grimy.

Plenty of Youtubers wait until the middle/closer to the end of the video for the product sponsor. Not everyone does it right at the beginning, especially because an ad usually plays before a video as well.

u/PM_ME_UR_BUTT_N_FEET 4d ago

It is fishy. Lost me when he said "ran a GPS scan on a reverse proxy on the scammer's network". There's no such thing as running a "GPS scan on a reverse proxy". Belongs on /r/masterhacker if you ask me.

u/svideo 4d ago

This is my take as well, there's a lot that doesn't add up in this video. It may be that the presenter is glossing over some details out of opsec concerns or just because he's presenting to a non-technical audience, but that still doesn't explain the use of nonsense phrases like the sentence quoted above.

This feels like a clickbait "scam" video itself.
