“Marketing Fraud”

Like many other people, we get a lot of telemarketing calls at home. I don’t even answer those calls. Most of them show up on Caller ID with just a phone number (easily tracked online to aggressive telemarketers) or with cryptic Caller ID “names” such as “TOLL FREE CALL” or “CUSTOMER SERVICE.” I just ignore them. Nearly all of our friends or legitimate business callers show up properly on caller ID with their real names and/or numbers.

Today, though, we got a call from….


I kid you not! That’s what showed up on the Caller ID, along with a phone number from the Seattle area. Apparently it's a debt consolidation service. They're barking up the wrong tree, though, since I have no debt.

If they really knew their business, they would call only consumers who actually have debts.
