Well I'd say that's a shame but frankly Cap One and especially Credit One wouldn't be anything terrific anyway....

I get a good share of these (especially from Cap One since I dropped them like a bad habit), but the killer for me is that, it seems, I get an offer for CAR INSURANCE every day. It's been over 26 months since I OWNED a car. It seems they'd update their records, but...

I get those too JoDa. Amica used to send me junk like clockwork. Also the car warranty scammers really came out of the woodwork. I'd like to figure out who sold them my information, whether it's the DMV (state) or the devilship I mean dealership. Since I ditched the PO Box I'd had for years I haven't heard from any of these scammers and it's wonderful.

I like to waste the time of the warranty scammers. I do the whole "which car?" and they start listing off every car I've owned while I say "nope, don't own that one anymore." When they get to the end of the list and say "well, what are you driving now?" I say "well, most of the time, if it's Friday, I'm driving an Altima, but if it's Saturday, I'm probably driving the Prius, but if I need to go to the hardware store it might be the Takoma..." And they say "great, we can get you a warranty on all of those." AND then I say "well, you should probably call Zipcar, then, since they actually own them." It's priceless when they say "ugh, you're a jerk" and hang up on me. :)

You would think, but I still get offers to extend the warranty on a vehicle I got rid of in 2011...that was two cars ago!

I guess I've been lucky they haven't tracked my phone down yet...or I'd be having fun too :-p
