    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats me...it's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

Got a brand new robocall today!

Filed under: Telemarketing Scams & Robocalls — Charlie Summers @ 7:14 pm

This is the very first time I ever got this scam on my telephone, and this one is fascinating…there really is an American Chronic Pain Association, no idea whether they know about this scam or not, but here it is in all it’s bogus glory:

Don’t hang up! This is not a sales call! The American Chronic Pain Association, a national center for chronic pain management, has issued the following prescription pain pill alert: In an attempt to stop the growing use and abuse of prescription narcotic pain pills, America’s national health care providers are now authorized to provide a new experimental pain relief compound to anyone suffering from physical pain or discomfort. This compound cream is directly applied to the pain-related areas. It is non-narcotic, and extremely effective. This new pain relief compound is provided to you by your insurance carrier with no out-of-pocket expense to you, and your pain relief cream can be shipped immediately. Press 1 now to verify your address and delivery date. Again, press 1 now to arrange delivery. Press 5 now to notify your health care provider that you have refused this shipment.

Yes, of course, because every time a recorded scam artist tells me this is not a sales call, I automatically believe him…
