      information is strictly confidential and if you’re foolish,
      you’ll fall into their scamming trap. Then watch out. Your
      bank account and credit cards can be quickly compromised
      and you’ll spend weeks or months trying to sort out this mess
      you’ve gotten yourself into. I know, I did it.
         How could I have been so stupid, well, I think the word
      free suckered me in. Now I quickly hang up or tell them to
      write me a letter, which they never do and I consider myself
      fortunate for refusing their generous kind offer to give me
      what I never needed in the first place. I realize I fell right into
      the soup because of the word, free. Just remember, nothing
      is free. Whoever is calling you is either a scammer or even
      if they are legitimate, they must make a profit, so giving you
      costly items at no cost isn’t what their profit margin demands
      or would allow.
         So, ignore these calls, buy only what you need at a fair
      price and forget the word free. You won’t be sorry. I’ve
      learned my lesson. Take heed and learn from my mistake,
      you’ll save yourself lots of unnecessary grief. This is free
      advice, so take it if it suits you. It’s given freely and I
      wouldn’t steer you wrong.
