Taking a detour

The easy road was closed today. Oh well.

Bored? Want to tie up a scammer?

I just got a phony, phony, phony "Unsecured Debt Resolution Letter" saying that I owe (un-named creditor) $19,000, but that if I call them, I can get it reduced to $6,000.

I am supposed to call 877-233-5647 give them my "processing number" and then work out payment.

It's total bullshit.

I'll be taking the letter to the postal inspector tomorrow, but I thought I'd have a little fun with them first and tie them up by acting endlessly "confused" about what I'm supposed to do.

The best way to start is to say you were talking to (make up a first name) and that your call got dropped, and that you want to be reconnected to that person.

Or, "the ink is smeared on the letter and the reference number looks like" CRDE041427842 "or, wait I mean..." and keep screwing up the "reference number" by changing a digit each time you read it. Intersperse these attempts by making up long stories and reasons for "oh, hang on a minute"... blame your ex for the debt... whatever... be creative.
