Ahhh, Rachel at Card Services, my wife's best friend - LOL. She tells me horror stories of her often. Rachel seems to bring out the "best" in my wife. I've heard nicer things about Hitler. And the colorful language that she uses to describe Rachel's timely solicitations, well, let's just say a drunken sailor would be proud.

She told me everytime she calls she reports it to https://www.donotcall.gov/

Says it seems to be helping.

Another reason it pays to have someone answer the phones for you (hope she doesn't see this or she may quit and go work somewhere else).

Rachel has only called my home phone so far.

I have tried to talk to her. She seems to have only 1 topic on her mind.
I asked her out to dinner she never told me her answer.

I think she is calling other guys behind my back.

Five companies behind the 'Rachel from Cardholder Services' scheme and other credit card robocalls were shut down Thursday, the FTC announced. The FTC estimated that the companies had defrauded customers out of more than $30 million by promising to lower credit card interest rates in exchange for an up-front fee.

I crack myself up some times.
I haven't carried a credit card balance for 20 years.

When the bill comes I pay it.

I wonder how many here can say the same.

BTW-Her name is no Ann.

I got one yesterday.
