Inside a scam call center


These guys are a particularly nasty group from Kolkata in India. They run a refund scam and this video shows what their call center looks like, how they operate, who and where they are. I've sent a link to the unblurred version of this video to the Kolkata Cyber Police (for all the good that it will do).

Jimi Hendrix On An Acoustic Guitar

Competition: Win Flack - Series 1 on DVD


Win Flack - Series 1 is released on 13th May


And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 3 copies to give away.

Synopsis
Meet Robyn, a sharp and witty high-flying publicity guru who can make her clients bad situations better with some expert spin, but when it comes to her own life things aren’t quite so straightforward.

Hollywood star Anna Paquin (The Piano, True Blood, X-Men) takes the lead in Flack, a brand-new darkly comedic drama that delves deep into the wild world of high stakes public relations.

Robyn is a senior publicist at Mills Paulson PR, under the tyrannical, but awe-inspiring boss Caroline, played with relish by  Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda, Wanderlust, Chimerica). Then there’s the rest of the team: the tirelessly hedonistic yet brilliant PR powerhouse Eve, in a hilarious turn by Requiem’s Lydia Wilson, and the endlessly willing intern, Melody (Rebecca Benson – Game of Thrones).

Damage limitation is Robyn’s game, as she’s tasked with babysitting her clients and dealing with a litany of scandals that threaten their careers. Whether it’s bringing a footballer’s hook-up back from an overdose, saving a teenage pop singer’s career with a fake sex-tape, rescuing a comedian’s sell-out tour after an ill-judged performance that’s gone viral, or the influencer who needs to borrow a baby, Robyn and the agency will do anything to keep their clients’ reputations intact.

Competition: Win Deutschland '86 on DVD


Deutschland '86 is released on 13th May

And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 3 copies to give away.

Synopsis
Deutschland ’83 saw viewing figures in excess of 2.5 million, exceeding that of the seminal Nordic noir hit The Killing and putting Germany at the forefront of must watch television. This epic coming-of-age story is set against real events, culture wars and the political realities of Germany in the early 1980s and sees Jonas Nay (Line of Separation) as a spy at the centre of this suspenseful Cold War thriller. The series also features an era defining 1980s pop soundtrack that hits all the right nostalgic buttons (99 Red Balloons anyone?).

Deutschland ‘86 is an epic 10-part drama that catapults audiences into the tumultuous political landscape of 80s East Germany. We join Martin Rauch (Nay) in 1986 and East Germany is broken, Perestroika is real, terrorism plagues Europe, the AIDS crisis intensifies and the struggle against apartheid rages on. Banished for his sins in 1983, Rauch wallows in limbo until his Aunt Lenora (Maria Schrader – Aimée & Jaguar, The City and the City) conscripts him into her plan to drum up hard currency abroad. They set off on an adventure through Africa, Western Europe and finally home to East Germany. Can mafioso-style Capitalism save Communism just in the nick of time?
