Eugene's Gift to the US Senate
There seem to be an endless web of weird telemarketing companies that have nefarious links to each other and constantly offer me the oddest combination of things. My last entry was about a call I got that promised me a free cruise if I completed a survey. I'm not sure exactly what they do with this information, but I bet they turn it into cash. At the end of the survey they then offered me some weird too-good-too-be-true health program. I decided to decline. A few days later, I got a call offering me the cruise. It was a free trip with no stringsexcept I needed to pay $118 in border crossing fees right away (perhaps that would be a simple way to keep illegal aliens out? Where would they get the money if they can only work once they're here! Feel free to forward my plan to the Senate.)
Here's the call.
