Community notice: Cybertech scammers calling from sub-continent

Just had a very well spoken curry munching wench with strong accent, right on dinner time, no number shown, calling from the sub-continent slums of Bombay looking to work her scam.

My computer reportedly 'was at severe risk', currently online and needing lifesaving Cybertech intervention.  Had real trouble stopping laughing as I had not long gone offline and shut my computer down.

Wanted me to bring up run dialog via Win-R keys.  Unfortunately the scamming tart hung up when I asked for her address and phone number.

For the uninitiated, have a squiz at the Dept of Internal Affairs site on the many various scams.
