Criminals don't care.

Continuing the saga of the scammers at LifeSecure USA, I just now received a call - the second in two weeks - from these wastes of human cytoplasm.

Some time ago I complained to the Arizona Attorney General about these people, and received a letter back from that office with a reply from LifeSecure, promising that my number (at which they attempt to contact my mother), had been removed from their internal database.

In an interesting twist and confirmation of my assumptions, the number that came up on my caller ID is the same one being used by "EMT Medical Alert", another elder-scare fraud being run by the same outfit (480-237-8044).

When they call, I always answer in an elderly voice and let on that I'm my mother, to see what the pitch of the day is. Today, it ran something like this:

"Hello, [Name], I'm one of the security officers at LifeSecure, and I'm calling about one of the unauthorized charges which was made to your account some time ago. I wanted to let you know that this company has been caught and is being prosecuted for fraud, and that's why you've been receiving a lot of telemarketing calls lately." (Sound familiar? Just a variation of their standard script.) They make themselves sound so official...

At this point I informed the caller that LifeSecure USA had promised the Attorney General of Arizona that my number had been removed from their call list, and instead of saying something like, "Oh wow, I apologize, I'll make sure you never get called again" (Ha! Wishful thinking!) he started to argue with me about "How long ago was that?"

All I can do is keep pestering the Attorney General's office until they do something or get tired of me.

Don't you have a Do Not Call list down there in the States?

Of course. Do you think scumbags like this pay any attention to such niggling details?

Oh, right.

Too bad we can't bomb them from orbit...

When they argue, you should list the date of the reply letter, and tell them that your lawyer has a copy in his files. Also that this phone call will be listed as well.
