Default New Scam

This morning I received a call informing me that I had been carefully selected to participate in a 30 second political survey. For participating I would receive a two day cruise to the Bahamas paying only tax and port fees. It was really difficult for me to reluctantly hang up!

It would take me a tenth of a second to hang up.

Paul,
You did the right thing, hang up and don't answer when they call again...A 2 day cruise to the Bahamas, that tells you something right there..
