Sometimes I'm in the mood to just pick up that phone and scream expletives at it. But with my luck it would probably be Costar. Then again they deserve it too.

Every scam seems to generate another. Identity theft is just getting worse which is why I'm expecting an international electronic identification system will be developed within the next ten years. Invest in it!
