Gordon Bell of DEC had a sign in his office, "Better is the enemy of Good".
Sure he did. It meant that to sell a VAX architecture, the PDP-11 architecture could not be sustained. Anyhow, despite the beauty of those machines, DEC got sucked into Compaq, and thence into HP. Crap reigns supreme.
Trusting someone that's outright plan is to abuse your trust is not a smart thing to do.

Rachel from Cardholder Services advertises on Craigslist in Orlando. How difficult is it to just use their services (I know they're calling people at the FTC) and track them down? Use existing laws to put them out of business. There are plenty of options for those willing to do the minimal amount of work.

Several calls a week? I'm envious. I get a minimum of several a day. You know, murder is a crime because you rob someone of the remaining time they might have had on this planet. Robo callers steal the equivalent of lifetimes every single day and our useless FTC seems utterly incapable of doing a damned thing about it.
What does the FTC regulate again? Oh,... yeah... TRADE. Not theft, not murder, not communications, and definitely not Mumbai sweatshops.
After 700 years, the files of the Inquisition are being released, and like with the German Holocaust during WWII, they turn out to be a treasure trove for historians, since one of the primary functions of the Inquisition was to introduce better record keeping and rule of evidence to the judicial system.
To understand a program you must become both the machine and the program.
