Inspect Element: How to Temporarily Edit Any Webpage

Right-click on any web page, click Inspect, and you’ll see the innards of that site: its source code, the images and CSS that form its design, the fonts and icons it uses, and the Javascript code that powers animations and more. You can see how long the site takes to load, how much bandwidth it took to download it, and the exact color used in its text.Or, you could use it to change anything you want on the page.

With the help of an inspect element option scammers are cheating innocent people. 

Scammers call innocent people in the name of big brand computer companies like Microsoft , Dell, Hp and many more and mention they will provide free service and  take remote support access to their computer & laptop by using free software like “teamviewer, ammyy admin, show my pc” and somehow force people to open their online bank account and after that they make their screen go black (Option available in remote support software’s ) and they use inspect element to temporary edit their bank transactions see the bellow images I did few changes in my own bank account with the help of Inspect Element

I hope you understand how scammers use this to fool innocent people.

Don’t use this trick to cheat or fool people, I did this to my own bank account for the sake of education purpose and to make people aware of this scammers trick.
