The other day I got my first phone call from a telemarketer. As a family we get a tonne... But this one was special...This person specifically asked for me.
She asked me (in broken English) if I wanted to sign up for a UCFV Alumni Mastercard.
First off who knew that UCFV had any want or need to have their own card? Certainly not me. Secondly, I'm perfectly happy racking up cash on my Dividends VISA, so I politely declined (aka yelled "NOT INTERESTED") and then slammed the phone down.
The thing that really bothered me though, is that a University-College on the verge of becoming a full-blown university would sell their former student's personal information to a credit company. I paid them thousands of dollars to attend and get my degree, and they repay me by sicking telemarketers on my ass? Honestly, I just don't think that is right! Under no circumstances should a college be giving out their students personal info. UCFV is BULLSHIT.
