Brand new scam, but is it worth adding?

There are several of those ads and they have been on TV for the past couple of years now...always have to laugh when its on. How can folks be so dumb as to fall for such nonsense.

I like the one where the young girl grabs the car keys and tells her dad, "this computer is so slow, lets go buy a new one". When its his turn to speak I always think to myself, "Buy your own darn computer...I bought the last one and you keep screwing it up".
