New name

So, as it turns out, Verizon charges you money to be unlisted.  Alex and I recently signed up for FiOs and it allows you to choose an alias for your listing so we decided to put the most ridiculous name we've ever heard of!  It sure didn't take long for Verizon to start selling our information!  This came in the mail today and a few days ago I got a call asking for "Mrs. McIroncock".  C'mon now!

Sure is amusing though!

Verizon didn't sell your info. They sent it to the credit reporting agencies, as all utilities do. Those agencies sell your information which is where you get all the preapproved credit and insurance offers from.
