Sadly, most of the junk mail I get these days is from companies I already do business with.
Me too. The biggest offenders, by far, are American Express and Verizon (FiOS, not Wireless).
Verizon takes it an infuriating step further. We have a bare-bones FiOS phone line for emergencies, and we’ve given its number to almost nobody. It rings about twice a week, and nearly every time, it’s a Verizon telemarketer trying to upsell us. (Pick up, 5 seconds of autodialer silence, “Hi, I’m calling on behalf of Verizon…”) And we pay extra every month to have this number unlisted.
I’m just about ready to cancel the line and just hope we never need it, or keep its only phone unplugged, simply because Verizon so relentlessly telemarkets us despite my demands each time to stop.
