Reducing Debt

I received a call from Mark at "Quantum Credit" He said, "If you are interested in significantly reducing your debt, please stay on the line." So I stayed on the line. Sanji (not a joke that was really his name) answered the call. He asked, "What kind of debt do you have?" I replied, "National Debt." He was confused. "Is this from loans," he asked. I replied, "Yes, loans, grants, financial aid, you name it we've got it." He said, "Um, ok great. We can help." "Fantastic!!," I responded energetically. "How much debt do you have? Is it less than $10,000, or more than $10,000," he asked. I responded, "Oh much, much more." "How much more?" I told him, "Approxamately $10 Trillion, give or take." He was again confused, "Um, is that $10,000?" "No sir, $10 Trillion. Trillion with a "T" and many zeros." He then hung up on me. So I called back. I waited on hold again for a few seconds and spoke with a nice woman, but I did not get her name. She asked the same questions, which I responded in the same way. "National Debt" did not compute with her either. "How much debt do you have?" Again, "$10 Trillion, with a "T" and many zeros." "OOOH NO! Ma'am you have the wrong number we can't help you with that." I told her that they called me. She then hung up. Drat, another dead end. I called back about 10 times (yes I actually did manage to get some real work done too) and spoke to about 10 different people. None of which were willing to help with our $10 trillion National Debt. I figured since they called and wanted to help me reduce my debt I would act on behalf of the nation and our children and try to reduce this debt myself, unfortunately to no avail. Why won't they help? Should anyone want to give it a try and help reduce the National Debt, Quantum Credit can be reached at (702)520-1342. The also have a website (incase you want a laugh at this scam) www.quantumcredit.com.au. No that is not a typo their web address ends in .com.au.

The moral of this very long story is: "Don't waste my time with your scams. I will make time to mess with you."

At my place of business we get about 10 of these a day. Mostly for contributions for charities.

I'm lucky. We don't get many solicitors at my work. Rarely we get one but once we inform them that this is a military installation they get real quiet, apologize and never call back.

i get calls like this all of the time. we also used to get faxes from places trying to scam us. they send over an official looking memo reminding our employees to take advantage of the "corporate vacation packages" (mind you my company is a company of 4 people consisting of me, my mom, my dad, and my husband). when they waste my paper and ink to try to scam me i get really pissed. i tape 5 pieces of paper together in a loop and fax their 1-800#, i also put the fax on auto redial. so for hours straight their customer service department get the fax noise in their ears every time. it is pretty funny b/c after a few hours they get really frustrated and start yelling at the fax machine.

i have taken to messing with them, in case you hadn't noticed. i understand that it is just their job, but you should kind of expect it when you accept a position working for scam artists. i work with small engine equipment, if i don't like oil and grease than i shouldn't work there.
