It seems like Rachel from Cardholder Services is calling constantly nowadays.
Am I the only one having this problem?
This rather unhelpful story in the Los Angeles Times says that I'm not alone. About the best it can offer, though, is to suggest that you put yourself on the Do Not Call Registry even though the article notes that this doesn't work.
These rather more helpful articles in the St Louis Beacon and the Wisconsin State Journal seem to indicate that the FTC is aware of these problems, and apparently is even trying to do something about them.
Apparently, though, this is far from the first time the FTC has tried to prosecute such activity. The FTC press release notes that "Cox resides in California but runs his allegedly illegal operation through multiple foreign corporations purportedly in countries such as Panama, Hungary, Argentina, and the Republic of Seychelles" which may be at least part of the reason it's hard to stop.
Well, for the time being I guess I'll just continue to hang up on these clowns :(
