Default I got a "Survey" Call for free cruise

I got one of those calls where you take a survey and the reward is a free cruise. It was automated so I just listened and played along.


What I realized is that these things are OBVIOUSLY designed solely to gather marketing information from the usual companies that do cold calling. The Questions were:


1) have you shopped for new health insurance in the last year


2) have you shopped for any home repairs in the last year


3) have you shopped for life insurance in the last year


You get the idea - any question where you answer "yes" means you name will be sold to the people who telemarket these services.


I did not even stay on this call long enough to get to the free cruise offer - we ALL know how those things turn out (you never get your free cruise).
