As funny as this is,and as much as i want to believe it could be true, i unfortunately found this. http://www.snopes.com/business/bank/deadcard.asp
Then again, the real truth doesn’t exist, only the truth. So is it the real truth? No.
Might as well be true. I kept my grandfathers phone number active after he passed away, and moved into his house a few years latter. I got phone calls all the time from people looking to collect or get a donation from him. The conversation went something like.
“Hello I’m looking for _____ ______ ______, is he home?”
“No, I’m sorry he passed a few years ago.”
“Is their a good time to reach him?”
“Depends? Are you a medium?”
“I can call back…..”
If you read properly the link you yourself provided, it is stated as undetermined whether it is true.
yes, it did state that, but if you actually read it, it does disprove a lot of the statements. The fact that they are saying it went to collection after 60 day instead of 90 days is enough to already doubt its validity.
