In the past three weeks, I've gotten more robocalls and telemarketer calls than I know what to do with. And wouldn't you know, there's now another phone scam going around and it doesn't look like it would fool you too easily.
Vectren and other Indiana utilities being shown blank checks by consumer advocacy groups in protest of possible upcoming Indiana law changes that they feel would allow companies to increase gas/electric bills as they so choose.
Admit it, even though you swear you never touch your phone while you are driving, you'd be fibbing a bit. Sure there are laws around the country that fine texting while driving, but South Carolina is trying to make sure their drivers NEVER touch their phones again.
I just got a call from a number that is similar to mine, it had the same prefix. A call like that is from someone "spoofing" your number. It's just one of the many scam calls we all get that will regrettably increase next year.
When it's hot like it is now, or when it's time to do all your holiday shopping, online is the way to go. Honestly, I don't buy as much online as I used to therefore, I rarely, well never have made any returns.
The idea of a kid under 18 having a cell phone always surprises me, but in the world we live in, it's probably a good thing for a teen to have on hand. However, nervous parents who are always waiting around for a reply text will have a new app to try out.
