I never answer my phone if it is a number I don't recognize.
I just saw a number pop up that I didn't recognize so I turned off the ringer and let it go to voicemail seeing if they'd leave a message or if it was perhaps a wrong number.
They left a message.
It was my "friend" Kelly.
Kelly who you ask. Oh, you know, the Kelly that I had spoken to last week about my concerns with my credit card company. My "friend" Kelly to whom I had expressed my dismay with how my credit card company kept raising my rates without me knowing. My "friend" who wanted to remind me of our "discussion" about the non-profit that can lock in my rates at 1.9%. My "friend" who urged me to call today and sign up so that I could "get a good nights rest".
Gosh, I don't remember having a friend Kelly, or talking to her about my credit problems, in fact I don't remember having any credit problems, but she urged me to call and sign up, so I guess I will!
Really? Do people really fall for this?
