  •  Just last week, I got a "personalized" robocall (0+ / 0-)

    from a collection agency. Second time in two years with the same thing, they wanted $3500. I could not figure out what this was for, redialing the phone # got the do-do-do This call cannot be completed as dialed...

    Well I got through, with the help of my phone company, and it involved a bill for $35 copay
    from 2.5 years ago when my husband died.

    Collection agent said they would eat the $35. What if I had paid them $3500? Someone inputting numbers got a little wild with zeros? And how in the hell did they get my name and phone # since it's not in the phone book?

    Americans, while occasionally willing to be serfs, have always been obstinate about being peasantry. F. Scott Fitzgerald, the Great Gatsby
