|Incompetent Scammers Are Incompetent

Those "Virtual PC Doctor" (or whatever) scammers just gave me a call. And no, I didn't follow their directions: Contrary to popular belief, I'm not clueless. Suffice to say that I was Googling said tactic even as I was on the phone with them.
Besides, even before I was entirely certain that it was a scam, the caller struck me as annoyingly condescending—talked to me like I was a complete n00b who didn't know her way around a keyboard.
And to ice the failcake? After I hung up on them the first time, they called me up again and got kind of aggressive. There's something kind of gratifying about saying "you are scammers, and I'm onto you!"
