Telemarketer. Peddling an SBI Credit Card. Rs 800 in coupons (God alone knows for what) along with the credit card. A Rs 500 charge upon first usage. Seems they’re very upfront about disclosing these charges. I almost asked how much those coupons cost SBI to begin with.

What a scam!

Silly post. As pointless as the subject matter. There is an old saying:
If you have nothing to say then its better to say nothing.

Even better: point out a scam and help someone not fall into it. :-)
