Good news. I qualify for free diabetes medicine.

All I need now, is diabetes.

Or a vehicle new enough to have a soon-to-expire warranty.
Or a serious-sounding credit card charge I need to authorize.
Or a curious back-taxes issue I’m liable for.
Or a new healthcare plan to consider.
Or a local law enforcement group seeking my monetary support.

The robocall scammers have recently increased tremendously because they no longer wait to “listen” for a response. It’s just a recording, same as what they’d leave if shunted to voicemail if I don’t answer.

I’m not even hearing anymore of an option to Press 1 and speak to someone. This is either a further cost-cutting move somehow, or a workaround so that they cannot be told for me to be taken off their list (AS IF!)

I answer and let the phone just sit there. That’s far easier than letting them go to voicemail and then having to go back into voicemail and delete or otherwise acknowledge them.

It was “Allen” from somewhere. If it was the ghost of Brimley he would have pronounced it, “diabetis.”

How on earth do I remember that TV commercial?

Lately it is "..." from Medicare or Medicare Dept. calling to ask if I have received my new card.

Or several times in the last couple weeks it was "Amazon" calling to let me know that a MacBook Pro was on its way and had been authorized against my credit card.

I sometimes wonder what the scam is going to be, but we never seem to get far enough for them to tell me, except for once in a while when somebody immediately asks me to verify my credit card information. I do enjoy the YouTube clips where somebody scams the scammers.
