I have been pestered by our alumni association to call and “verify” my current information–very important, they said!
I ignored it three times and then decided to call. As you might have imagined, the whole thingy is to sell me an alumni book for two easy payments of $179.99, if I remember correctly.
I have seen “who’s who” books in shelves of folks I visited and found that those persons, while their grades and activities on campus were not spectacular, were so flattered to be in a who’s who book they paid the price to purchase one. ha!
I wasn’t interested in paying over $300 for the book. But if you get these notifications, this is what is going on.
