Phone Scammers & A Brag Moment

Answered a call from 616-971-0229 MI, USA. A recorded message informed me that Obamacare is the law of the land and that if I wanted help getting medical insurance, press one. If I wanted to be removed press 2. It occurred to me later that a call from or on behalf of the federal government would not refer to the Affordable Health Care Act as Obamacare.

This is the 2nd time they’ve called and I’ve pressed 2 to be removed. Guess that isn’t really an option they wanted me to choose. Happy President’s Day to you too!
