Hi All ________________________ I received an interesting phone call today. Some kind sounding male voice said that he was from the Credit Card Company. (At this time I stifled my thoughts of telling him I was on the DO NOT CALL REGISTRY). He went on to explain that at present there was no trouble with any of my Cards but would I like to have him look into getting my rates reduced, if I would just provide him the numbers. (CLICK)

Yeah I know some people who talk to these people, some who actually give the info, and some who let them finish and say they are not interested. I can't be bothered - don't have the time to listen to these people so once I know it is a telemarketer or something I just hang up. Simple as that.

In the last month, I must have won about a billion dollars/pounds/euros in lotteries I haven't entered.

It's amazing how many of those lotteries have given away so much free money that they can only afford yahoo.com email addresses.

Non-existent Paypal account? What about my 3rd Fifth bank (or something like that) account when they don't have a point of service in the whole province? (As fas as I know, anyway...)

Ok I spelled it out. Is there some secret message I am missing because I certainly don't see one.

Either I am stupid or like CrawGator I really can't get it...

I tried spelling it.. looking for "leet" references etc. Or are you just spiting someone [Big Grin]

Or is it some gag I just don't get...

I also do not get it.

Unless what you mean is that spelling it out will be soooooo long that it will annoy the telemarketers?
