This type of fraud is common, and has been common for years now. The Telcos don't care - or report it to the Police. The same goes for the banks who are also involved. Even where there is clear evidence of collusion between employees from both organisation types. Is that a generalisation? Yes, but it doesn't make it not true.
I don't recall the make of hard disk, but the PC was a 286 MOD purchase of indeterminate origin. On discovering that the disk was stuck and refusing to spin up, we discovered that a comb was just the right size to slip into a slot in the front of the disk and jemmy the thing into movement. Worked every time.
And DUX/Tru64 - which was dropped like a hot potato. I was on a focus group shortly after the acquisition that looked into which features should be ported from Tru64 to HPUX. The top items were remote management and the cluster file system. Interestingly, HP decided to drop the lot and go with the v1.0 product from Veritas. I never understood why.
