I got declined for a credit card the other day at Coles and they said
they would send me a letter. I did not even want to get their credit
card but they said I could get 30% off my shoe purchase if I applied.
Even though it was declined clerk was nice enough to give me 20% off.
Letter today says card was declined because credit report said I was
Trying to get in touch with the reporter, TransUnion so far has been
impossible. Computers down and I got through on the phone to one of
their Indians but he said there was nothing he could do because
computers were down.
He refused to take a message.
World is full of incompetents.
But, if others hear this sad news who knows what other idiots I will
have to deal with.
Could happen. I've heard others on TV say they had to spend months to
I only use one credit card but have others for wife. She pointed out
that she just got a note from Discover that contained my credit score.
I never ask for a credit report and don't need one. I like the
convenience and pay it off in full at end of month.
SS does have me worried. When dad died I called them and they just
asked for his name and SS number and that was it. Wife just pointed out
that when I reported him deceased that I was on his checking account but
this was nearly 15 years ago and I was not signed up then.

My internet response has been slow lately. When I called my ISP I was
told that it appears to be a global issue caused by a single device.
I'm glad that the people that called you were diligent in their efforts
and were able to track down the root cause of the problem.
I thank you for allowing them to fix your machine and thereby enhance the
internet experience for the rest of us. You are a good man, Mike. Bless you.
First on the credit issue, their site was up but to file a complaint you
had to fill out a long form and include your SS number. Screw it.
On the Indians, I got a great one today.
Indian said he was calling on behalf of my internet service provider.
I said, who is that and he said Verizon.
I told him, "you are mistaken my isp is Comcast."
He said, "Oh, Comcast has been taken over by Verizon."
Then I began my "stupid Indian rant", cursed him and hung up.
He called back asking why I thought he was so smart.
I called him an Indian asshole, in Hindi, told him to jump in the Ganges
and hung up telling him not to call back as I would not answer.
He did, I didn't.
Figure I did my good deed by pissing him off to the point that he might
want more money to partake in this thievery.
I blew my rape whistle into the ear of a female
spammer. Eight times she called back. Eight times
I saw the call ID and answered with a rape whistle.
I came home several hours later from some thing,
and had a message on the machine (from the female
spammer) suggesting I get mental help. I didn't
call back to tell the idiot woman to learn what
is a rape whistle.

You can bet the "goon" did NOT work for Moicrosoft.
I've had them call saying they were from Microsoft and from Rogers.
I've had popups on my computer claiming to be from both - all telling
me the same thing - my computer was "throwing bad things at the
internet" was the explanation I got from one of them when I called the
number on the notice from Rogers. I asked "is this Rogers" and he
answered "this is Ragish Patel and we work for Rogers". I hung up.
Any time I call Rogers support they answer "this is <name> from Rogers
in Toronto".. They are calling from Brampton and have that distinctive
"brampton accent" that sounds very "south asian" - but at least they
are sitting at a desk in Brampton Ontario.

One of my Indian friends recognized the Indian accent and started
talking to the guy in Hindi. The caller said, "Please, sir, I am
required to speak English."
Legitimate US companies like Microsoft and Comcast are hiring them for
obvious cost savings. I have no problem with that but the crooks are
hiring them too.
The Crow Nation built a casino. It went broke. Of course the only thing
within 100 miles is the Custer Battlefield. Location, location,
location. The Northern Cheyenne didn't even try. The Salish Kootenai
keep trying but their best source of income is smokes. The Blackfeet,
well the Blackfeet are screwed in more ways than you can count. Being an
Injun in Montana is no bed of roses.
