…… you start getting stuff like this in your mail. Lookie here - If I get onboard and take advantage of an incredible Death Benefit Package (sure hope I qualify) I get a WalMart gift certificate  :dance3:  :laugh2:  :crazy:

 

If I hurry and mail in the form, I may even get the gift before I keel over  :roflmao:

Around here, some outfit advertises on TV death benefits up to $20K.  It's just some form of expensive insurance that's marketed to suck in the elderly. You can sign up to be taken off the mailing lists of most credit card & insurance companies. I did about 5 years ago & hardly ever get either now.

Looks like Spam - I wouldn't open it!

Sorry about the nerf. "Sorry? Sorry? There's no apologizing in slot car racing!" 

Besides, where would I even begin?   I should probably start with my wife ...

The only thing I know about slot cars is if I had a good time when I leave the building! I can count the times I didn't on one hand!

It is a scam to sell expensive life ins. My Mom sent this in one time asking for info. and the next thing she heard there were two men showing up trying hard sell and scare tactics. They were very rude when I asked them to leave. It took me grabbing a baseball bat to get them out the door.

Is that bad timing to link Walmart and death ?

The quote is free, so what have I got to lose? All they want is my full name, date of birth, and phone #.

If I decide to act on it, all they need then is my SS #.  :laugh2:

So if I have no heirs, and I die, do I get the death benefit? The media are full of term life insurance and death

benefit insurance ads. Basically nothing more than savings accounts with no interest.
