I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN IT WAS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! I SAW THE AD ON TV THAT SAID THAT LOW-INCOME, UNEMPLOYED PERSONS WHO WERE ENROLLED IN CERTAIN GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS WERE ENTITLED TO A CELL PHONE AND 200 FREE MINUTES A MONTH.
I CAN NO LONGER AFFORD A PHONE SERVICE AND IT IS ALMOST MANDATORY THAT YOU HAVE A LOCAL PHONE NUMBER SO PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYERS CAN CALL YOU IF THERE IS SOMETHING ON YOUR RESUME THAT THEY LIKE AND THEY CAN TELL YOU TO COME TO WORK.
THIS WAS PERFECT FOR ME.
THE SERVICE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE BROUGHT TO US BY VIRGIN MOBILE AND I CALLED THE NUMBER ON THE TV SCREEN.
IMAGINE MYH SURPRISE WHEN I CALLED THE NUMBER AND GOT A VERY RUDE MAN WHO ANSWERED AND SAID THAT SPRINT HAD BOUGHT OUT VIRGIN MOBILE IN MAYH OF 2010 AND WERE NO LONGER OFFERING THIS PROGRAM. HE GAVE ME A NUMBER TO CALL BUT IT WAS ALL RECORDED MESSAGES AND NO HUMANS TO EXPLAIN WHAT IT ALL MEANT.
SO I CALLED SPRINT BACK AND A WOMAN JUST AS RUDE PATCHED ME THROUGH TO A RECORDED MESSAGE THAT SAID SPRINT WOULD NO LONGER HAVE THE ASSURANCE PROGRAM.
THE WEBSITE IS STILL IN PLACE BUT MANY LOW-INCOME PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THE INTERNET VERY OFTEN OR THEY HAVE A COMPUTER BUT NO INTERNET SERVICE AT HOME...
THE SOONER I CAN GET A PHONE, THE SOONER I CAN GET A JOB AND GET OFF THIS GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM AND BE ABLE TO PAY MY OWN WAY AND HELP OTHERS. THIS IS NO DAMNED FUN AND I WONDER WHY THEY WOULD WANT TO SCAM POOR AND DESPERATE PEOPLE LIKE THIS!
