Called numerous times over the weekend... would not answer. I answered this morning because I was in a playful mood. The story is the same... "You have been selected to receive a $100 gift card to Wal-Mart, Target, etc, I just need to verify your address." I played along a bit to see what the deal was because of course "they are not selling anything at all." Then they needed to verify the credit card that I use that qualified me... I told them I would have to get my wallet... and put the phone down. I kept coming back every 3-5 minutes or so to tell them I am still looking. I was amazed, they stayed on the line for almost a half hour while "I found my card" Once I told them I had found it then they wanted the number and expiration... yeah right!! I told them sorry, I'd have to pass on their sweet $100 gift. They told me that I could use a different card without any balance on it... ok, I decided to play some more. Having just recently gone through bankruptcy, I gave them a credit card number of one of my cards that had not expired yet... but was definitely NOT valid... because of course they simply want to "verify." Amazingly, I was told that they would need the card that I currently use when shopping... you know, "the one that originally qualified me for the $100 gift"... chuckle!! Again, I told them I would just have to pass... now they got a bit aggressive (shocking, that it didn't happen 20 minutes earlier). He wanted to know "why" to which I told him that looking at the 120 credit card fraud complaints against USA Benefits that I found with a quick Internet search would ensure that I never give them a valid credit card number.
Well so much for my Monday fun...
