Dragnet Doldrums

No matter what tech support number I call, I get the same person.

They know too much of my personal information and data, so much so that they can even suggest what the problem sites are during an internet tech support call, without my offering names, although they never have answers, only questions and blame, and always transfer the call. Pointless service, really.
It’s like a spongy shadow economy full of fail.

Not sure which service they’re affiliated with – phone network support (Verizon), internet network support (Time Warner Cable), online purchasing sites support (Two that I know of: Amazon, eBay), banking software support (Bank of America), computer manufacturer support (Two possibilities: Dell, Sony), Package direction (FedEx, UPS, possibly others), mp3 player manufacturer support (Apple), TV Manufacturer support (Toshiba), speaker manufacturer support (Creative), or just some random criminal ID theft organization.

They have been answering every tech support number I get online and make with my Verizon phone for the last 10+ years.

They for sure have my driver’s license number, account names, popular sites, last 4 of my social, common security question answers, serial numbers, credit card number, DOB, and with a cursory investment in time could have my entire life mirrored.
Notice I didn’t say “passwords”, although misrepresenting identity on a password recovery or keylogging could easily get them that information. Very easily.
With simple web editing, misdirection, and database access, they could even falsify receipts and purchase records in an automated fashion, control data access to prevent viewing, and get to tracking information on packages (online or otherwise), falsify records and webpages, record transferred calls, scam money from returns and rebates, steal the contents of packages, replace objects with fabrications, misdirect packages to cause harm, fix prices, funnel money, steal passwords or other important information, or take out cards in people’s names, as I believe they or organizations like them already have. Even if they don’t do it personally, all calls are recorded, and no database is that well-secured, so the data might be sold, stolen or even “misplaced”.
It’s ok, though. I just lost The Game, is all.

The problem is that all of these things are known by the same person, and all of these important organizations so vital to life are held at bay by the same wall. I don’t intend to call for their destruction, just simply found the line “Put us through”, in this context, to be amusing.
