Got a phone in the mailbox today, addressed to my wife. It came from True Wireless, a company that deals in those free phones for poor people.
She called them, asking why, and who sent it in her name. They can't give that info out unless you give them all sorts of personal info, LOL!
The phone is a cheapie, and I think they send them out, counting on fools to activate it by following the directions and it's only $5 for a billion minutes or some such crap. They are a scam, we looked them up on Google.
The phone, likely paid for with tax dollars or sleazy fees hidden on your bill, went right in the trash.
The whole "free cell phone" thing is an absolute rip, IMO.
If you get one like we did, don't bother to try to find out why, just trash it.
