The Credit Monitoring Nightmare Continues

>The day after I posted An Open Letter to My Credit Card Company, my husband answered the phone. The conversation went like this:

Husband: Hello?
Caller: May I speak to [my name as it is on my card]?
Husband: She’s unavailable at the moment.
Caller: I’ll call back another time.
Husband: Wait! Is this Bank of America? [You may as well know.]
Caller: Yeeessss.
Husband: Is this a ‘courtesy call’?
Caller: Yeeessss.
Husband: Is this in regard to a credit monitoring program?
Caller: Oh, no, [mumbles something about a free credit report]
Husband: Uh-huh. Over the past week she’s told two people by phone to make sure she’s on the no-call list and she filled out the form on the website. We’re now investigating what legal action we can take if this harassment continues.
Caller: Oh. I’ll make sure that your account is updated to show that you’ve opted out [or something like that].

Since then, I haven’t received any calls. Or maybe they just called when we weren’t home and didn’t leave a message. I’ll keep you posted.


About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have three cats and a husband.
