Me: “Thank you for calling [satellite TV company]. How may I help you?”

Caller: “I’ve bought some used equipment. I need to turn it on.”

Me: “Yes, sir. Could I have the serial number?”

(The serial number brings up an account in collections for over $800.)

Me: “I’m sorry, sir. We cannot activate your equipment until the previous owner closes his account. Can you contact him?”

Caller: “No.”

Me: “Why not?”

Caller: “He’s in jail in Mexico.”
