[quote:Girl Genius:MV8xNDM3NjE1XzIzODM1NjMwXzk3ODQ2MDk3] [quote:Anonymous Coward 1138565] [quote:Girl Genius] Okay - since I posted this they have written me another threatening ("or you will be fined") letter and came back again today. I told the lady she needed to leave and not come back and she was almost laughing saying that they are just going to keep harassing me until I fill it out. Ugh ... any advice on how to get rid of this bitch? [/quote] Don't answer the door. [/quote] Yes. I just don't like anyone we don't know coming up to the door of the house. I usually go outside and head them off and turn them around before they get to far up the driveway. Frankly, I am trying to keep them away from my husband who is a pushover for stuff like this. If she bangs on the door for any length of time, I'm afraid he will answer it. That's why I want to put a gate up. [/quote]
Ugh - the "census" lady came by today and tried to get me to take the American Community Survey.
I told her that I already answered the census (I put "2" and mailed it back; that's probably why they are here) and was not interested in any more surveys and closed the door. As I was closing the door she was lying that this was not the census, it was a "survey from the House of Representatives". I said "No, thanks. I'm all set."
She put a bunch of papers in my door. One identified the survey as the American Community Survey, which I suspected. Another paper, highlighted with pink, contained the "U S Census Code - Title 13 -- Ch 7 Offenses and Penalties" and all of that intimidating mumbo-jumbo basically saying that it is against the law not to answer the census (I already did; she admitted this wasn't the census) and another small paper that says she is "obliged to return until contact is made". She already made contact, duh, but I get the feeling that she is going to be bugging me!!!
So they are lying and intimidating people into filling out these forms! Definitely not filling out any forms for these data-mining dirtbags.
So, tell me GLPers how did you get rid of them? Are they still bugging you? Any advice?
Thanks, in advance :)
