More 'helpful' computer scammers

We had another group ring us yesterday, saying our computer was full of viruses and broadcasting warnings to their helpful computer service centre.
After our previous experience, in which Lynettea was annoyed to lose fifty dollars, (because she was too trusting and silly) we were most interested. Lynettea tried to keep the man in conversation.
It was difficult to understand him and he had to keep repeating things. At first we thought he was saying 'cure' and then 'pure' and then it turned out to be 'PC'. Lynettea asked him where they were located and he said the UK. When she tried to find out in which city they were operating he hung up suddenly.
I am thinking of starting up a cat detective agency to trace these scammers, but Lynettea thinks they are too tricky for me. At least I can post a warning to alert other kitties so they can advise their humans.

Diamond, you are very wise, so we think you probably COULD trace those rotten scammers. Thank you for the warning, and we are glad that Lynettea was more wary this time.

We hope you both have a wonderful weekend. :)

I tried to read all the words about the computer stuff, but really, I just could not tear my eyes away from your sweetly sleeping face.
