A Cold Caller Follows the Rules. News at 11.

I received a call from Steve at Coastal Equities.  It was a New York number.  I was so shocked that he was polite that I forgot to get his last name.

He started into his script about “investment-grade” and I thought “here it comes.”  Then he tried to sell me a Verizon corporate bond.  I just about fell out of my chair.

He didn’t lie to me.  He didn’t oversell the product.  But I wasn’t interested.  We parted ways without any shouting or hurt feelings.  I think.

That’s how it’s done, folks.

That’s the view of one lawyer from Jupiter, Palm Beach County, Florida.  I’m Marc Dobin.
