A New Breed of Annoying Automated Telemarketer
Just got an automated message saying:

"This is a message for Garcia, Kathy. Please press 1 to get your message."

Straight out of the Simpsons. After a minute of saying, "please press 1," the message finally said, "Phone 1-877-290-2680 between the hours of 8am and midnight to receive a very important message."

That's 1-877-290-2680. For Garcia, Kathy.
