Why do companies insist on calling you more than one time for the same thing. If I tell a company representative that I am not interested in their product that usually means that I’M NOT INTERESTED. Credit card companies are the worst. They insist on calling you several times to try to get you to sign up for whatever hair-brained scheme they’ve come up with this week to get you to pay them more money. I had someone call me last week regarding my Mastercard. If I just signed up for this new program I wouldn’t ever have to pay interest or late fees again. Woohoo! The only thing I had to do was sign up for a program that was going to cost me a specified amount every month. What?! I haven’t ever paid a late fee or really any interest costs since getting the card 3 years ago, but they want me to pay every month for the possibility of not paying the fees that I haven’t been paying the whole time. Huh? If the first phone call wasn’t enough I was called again today with someone different giving me the same song and dance. Before she could get through the whole script I stopped her and told her that a representative from her company had called me last week and I had declined then and I was declining again now. She just kept talking! She told me that I didn’t understand what the program could do for me. What?! Now you’re telling me that I’m not smart enough to understand your schemes to get my money. Hold on! I again informed the lady that I was not interested and I did in fact understand the terms of the program. She indicated, just like the other gentleman, that I would be receiving information in the mail to try yet again to get me to sign up for their stupid program. Oh boy, I can hardly wait!
