This is a bit of a strange question, but here goes:
Thought I'd try a bit of scambaiting (wasting the scammer's time by imitating a victim to prevent them scamming others and raise awareness) so if you have any scam emails, specifically ones involving tech support and / or viruses (eg "You have a virus!" or "Your PC may have errors!") please could you send me a screenshot of them via PM or reply.

Any which I can investigate I will and I will post the results on YouTube. I am unable to phone them but if they have live chat / IM / email that's great. I've had a couple of successful results so far, both resulting in the scammers going out of business.

(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmKn9bbaDmM is my first attempt showing the tactics the scammers use. These scammers shut off their website and IM address shortly after I revealed myself)
