I just received a pre-recorded telemarketing call offering me the chance to refinance my home. The caller ID said “Marvin Kane” at (410) 298-2013. No information was on the call except to leave a message if I was interested. I left a message all right. I rarely use 4 letter words, but people running a scam like this, people breaking federal laws, are the ones who get to hear me use bad words.
And you know what? This loser will make some money off of it, because a few people out there will leave their info and refinance through his company. The guideline to stop this kind of predator: Never buy anything from any unsolicited advertising! That goes for fax, email, phone calls, mail. If people would stop feeding the sharks, the sharks will go away. But enough people out there don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings, or are lonely, or aren’t too bright; that they fall for this stuff. Stop it!
I have filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, for all the good it will do. I’m on the Do Not Call list.
