Introduction: FBI Computer Tracing Prank

I recently ran across a .bat file prank by headlessknight that had to do with the FBI tracing your computer. I decided that I was going to tweak it up a bit after making the file and deeming his idea...well sorry to say (and no offense to headlessknight)...Unrealistic and just down right not funny. This was because of the way he made it. There was alot of name calling and dumb remarks in the prank that just made it un-realistic. Honestly if i was to have recieved the file in a message, or clicked on it by some other means, i wouldnt have believed it. My wife (to whom i pranked by phone using the pentagon's phone number and convinced her she accessed Level 3 Classified documents on wikkileaks) wouldnt even believe his prank. so this is how i tweaked it.

75% OF THE CREDIT FOR THIS 'IBLE GOES TO headlessknight FOR THE INSPIRATION. the other 25% goes to me for perfecting it and making it more convincing.

Step 1: Open Up Note Pad, Copy and Paste the Code

Copy the code script below that is in between the dashed lines. Dont worry about how un-even the script is. it will even itself out when you paste it into the Note Pad.

Now if you dont want to use my particular joke and want to make it your own go right on ahead. but keep in mind that it might not work if you change it.

After you copy and paste the script, save the file as a .bat file with a convincing name to make someone open it.

The next step shows the file in action...this was particularly and alot happens really fast.

Step 2: In Action

This is designed to make the victim think that Big Brother is ACTUALLY watching them when in fact its you laughing your butt off at the fact that they think the FBI is actually coming to get them for something they didnt do.

Because EVERYONE uses the popular blk/green color scheme after the matrix, i decided to make it more convincing and used a blk/grey color scheme. Also after the program ends, i have designed it to shut down the computer to make them think everything in the program written was true.

Now the idea is to get the victim to plant it themselves through an email or such, BUT if you have a chance to put it on their compy yourself, take the chance. I couldnt figure out how to make the .bat file show a different icon such as a frequented icon as the Internet explorer icon because i use WIN7 but if anyone could explain to me how, i would love for them to comment directions as to how.

As of me posting this my wife has nooo idea that she is about to get pranked, but when i do prank her i will let yall know how it goes.

The following images is the program at work:

Step 3: Courtesy of Me

If you cant get the program to work, i took the liberty of uploading the file so you can DL it to your own computer. KEEP IN MIND THAT THE PROGRAM WILL CAUSE YOU TO LOOSE ANY INFORMATION NOT SAVED BECAUSE IT PERFORMS A NO CRAP REAL SHUT DOWN.

Just used it on some 8th graders who were goofing off during class. Boy, they were scared!

Instead of using the timeout string, use "ping localhost -n x >nul" without quotationa and substitute the "x" for the number of seconds you want to delay. This will make it much more believable.

I will give that a try. Thanks much!

How do u save the file to .bat after copying and pasting it on notepad

Sorry for the late reply. When you save the file, there's a drop down menu at the bottom of the save prompt. Click on it, and select .bat, then save.

Can this harm your computer in any way?

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO FREAKED OUT LIKE ME ONCE PLAYFULLY RUNNING THIS PROGRAM AND CANT DELETE IT

A) SHUT DOWN YOUR COMPUTER

B) CTRL+ALT+DELETE > TASK MANAGER > PROCESSES> FIND conhost PROCESS> END

Hi. Love the prank and if you havent found a way to see the icon, simply copy and paste the code and make a new shortcut. after, give it a name, go to properties and you can then change the icon, and it works just the same.
