An about.com article by Andy O’Donnell on Beware of the ‘Ammyy’ Security Patch Phone Scam: A new twist on an old scam. Rather a narrow AMMYY- and US-centric view of how tech support scams work, but has some suggestions that may be useful to all those people who ask what to do when they’ve allowed a support scammer access to their PC.
