Sir, i have to transfer you to you answering machine. Please leave a message after the click.
and i got this from maddox
if they send you any crap about credit card, and they have a return envelope, rip it all up, put it in the return envelope and send it back, they will stop... lol AARP started sending me for some reason so i did it to them and they stopped
also, my answer machine message is as follows
