I got an official looking letter from these guys today asking my opinion on important issues so they could tell Congress. Being a marketing guy I tried to figure out what was really going on, especially since health care reform was no where to be found. At the very bottom they asked for a phone number. Turns out the survey is a sham to get your permission for telemarketers to buy their list and sell you investments. You can buy the list here.
On the bright side I was running out of starter paper for the grill.
