The other day a man walked up my driveway as I was playing with the kids handed me his supposed palo alto business card and told me the city was doing a utility upgrade. He asked for my phone number to make an appointment. I did not give it to him. I asked him to have the city contact me via phone. He himself did not look fishy and I almost believed him, but I thought just to be safe.

I am constantly getting phone calls trying to sell me "AT&T U-Verse". I tell them I have no interest in that product, but they keep calling, at least once a week for the past year. Is this a scam, too?

NO AT&T U-Vere is legit, but I am annoyed to receive several pieces of mail as well as frequent phone calls trying to secure our business. We use another vendor, and find the massive sales effort very wasteful.
