Death to Scammers!

Scamming is an illegitimate and pathetic career choice. I mean, at least be a gangster or something with some respect. But anyways, Slashdot reports:

ectotherm writes: "The nice people behind the recorded phone messages stating 'By now you should have received your written note regarding your vehicle warranty expiring...' — the ones who instantly hang up when you ask for the name of the company — have been busted. Fox News did a little background digging on the four people charged." Don't know about you, but I received three or four postcards in the mail from these scammers, as well as uncountable robocalls. The FTC says they cleared $10M since 2007.

The full story can be found on Fox News. I guess they aren't so bad after all (Fox that is, scammers still suck).

Adding my story to this. I think I got at least 3 calls on every line I own from them. Our dorm room phone which isn't published anywhere even got calls from them. Finally I pushed a button in hopes of talking (Read: cursing out) with someone one day and they didn't even pick up for me. Just goes to show you that scammers have no manners. Well anyways, glad that the auto warranty phase of my life is over now!
