Re: Free credit monitoring

FYI...just got this...I feel so...so...so...illegitimate!

I'm still amazed that companies send out stuff like this and are surprised when everyone finds out about it and uses it. DUHHH!

I just got that email too.

Why do I now feel like I should be watching out for this guy ?

Needless to say, they will not be 'hearing from me soon'

Re: Free credit monitoring

Reminded me of a couple of incidents a few years ago. Both macdonalds and another big sandwich chain (quiznos) put really nice printable coupons up on a web site as a promo (I think one of msns web sites). Something like buy a drink and fries and get the sandwich for free. Within a matter of days they had lines out the door and everyone had the coupon in hand.

Dismayed by the almost unbelievable occurrence that almost everyone with a computer could get their coupon and use it, they both posted almost the same sign at their registers and on the front door.

The sign called the coupon use "fraudulent".

Somewhere theres a manager or management team that is dumber than dirt. If for a moment you think you can post something "good" on any web site and not have it be broadly known within a few days, you're clueless. If your response to that is to call your customers criminals, you're a clueless idiot.

Re: Free credit monitoring

Oh yeah, and let me add one more thing in a galtian manner.

I'm sure once they close our 'illegitimate accounts', they'll be sure to continue spamming our email accounts with the addresses gained in the ill gotten transaction...

I remember that Quiznos coupon well... I probably wasted a whole inkjet cart on that sucker!

Re: Free credit monitoring

God bless the laser printer!

The good news for them is I ate so many of their sandwiches for free that I havent been interested in taking my fraudulent self there since the coupon fiasco. Sort of like when I worked at mickey-d's and had no interest in big macs for about 8 years.
