Some fast talking salesman sold my 90 year old mother $150 worth of dvds (10 of them) which do not have one recognizable actor in any of them. I was so mad when I saw them on her table, I could barely spit!
The good thing is she wasn't able to give them her debit card number because she is so blind she can't read it. So I called them and they said I could return them and to include a letter asking for her to be taken off the calling list.
It is sad to me that all of us are on every list, by default evidently, and have to beg to be removed!
Anyway, I finally realized this past year that "they" can sign her up for anything, send her anything, and as long as she can't give them a debit card number, it's their misfortune. She hasn't got a dime, or a credit card, and they can bill her all they want, but if she can't pay, there is not a thing they can do. (Although, about a year ago, someone sold her a "better" phone service, switched her phone and sent her an outrageous bill, and that took a lot of time and effort to change back to a normal phone service.)
What really angers me is that anyone can certainly tell, by talking to her on the phone, that this 90 yr. old lady doesn't really comprehend what she's getting into. And they do it anyway.
Okay, the rant is over. Thanks for letting me vent!
