    1. Ratbags is a good word for them. It’s terrible when people believe they’re legitimate and hand over information, money, whatever they’re asked for. We have legislation that applies, but, quite frankly, consumer protection isn’t the highest priority in the U. S. right now.

  1. Love it, Kathy! This reminds me of a co-worker who delighted in tormenting cold callers. Despite the fact that he made a living in sales. Or maybe because–he had an actual product to sell.

    A man called him wanted him to invest for a phenomenal return rate. He acted interested and managed to keep the guy on the phone for about 20 minutes, explaining the options and the details. Finally my co-worker said he had made up his mind to invest with him. He then said he had $1000 he could give him to work with. The guy was off the phone in seconds.

    1. I'[m glad to hear I’m not alone. I don’t want to be rude. But anyone trying to get that kind of info out of me deserves a role in one of my little dramas. At least that’s how I see it. It brightens my day.

    1. You’re welcome. I didn’t post either “company’s” name, but according to what I’ve read online, many people get calls from them. When anyone calls asking for my bank account or credit card number, I assume they’re not thinking about how to help me.

    1. Good luck on that one. I’ve been waiting for my money for years. Ever since I got e-mail, I think.

      Thank you for stopping by and for commenting. Hope you’ll return sometime.
