Credit Card Offers - Now THAT'S Quality
I recently received a credit card invitation that clearly was put together by a computer or a chimpanzee, or a chimp with a computer. Inside, I am invited to apply for a credit card as a part of my business - my business, a little company apparently known as "Andrea Dickson Kimberly D Scott@ [redacted].com". You can sort of see the name in the picture of my simulated credit card from the offer, above.
Yes, I've never been good with naming businesses, so I decided to name my non-existent business after myself and my sister's email address.
I called First Equity to see where they got my information from, and couldn't get live human being on the line, but the pleasant recorded baritone informed me that they got my name and information from a 'reliable source'. A reliable source that they trust.
I can only assume that the information was sold to First Equity by the web site registration service that I used to purchase my sister's online design portfolio web site.
But still, I mean, hello? Quality control? Has anyone else experienced this?
