They hit again: A very sophisticated group claiming to be from DirecTV said I needed new software on my receiver and, since my warranty had expired, there would be a charge. I asked many questions, insulted them, and they kept on for a half hour before they got around to asking for my credit card number, at which point I said “We’re done here” and hung up.

I called DirecTV to verify and they said it was a fraud and they’d heard of it before. Then, as my wife asked ‘Why weren’t we warned?
