Phone solicitations are high on my list of annoyances. They even score higher than dealing with the TSA, which is really saying something.
I'd forgotten about the e-mails "my" PVP (never used one) sent me. And in fact I do recall at least one snail mail letter now that it was mentioned. All of this nonsense has stopped since I complained to my agent about it. Not sure if that did anything or if it was coincidental.
