Just as I suspected.

subject: Re: News regarding your credit card.

Dear "Bank",

How serious are you about helping me achieve my goals? Because I have a stack of manuscripts and writing that I'd really like to see published someday, and you probably have more influence over publishers, ya know, being this huge bank conglomerate with loads of money. Can we have a talk about this? I'd love to get the ball rolling.

Looking forward to a successful future with you.

Respectfully yours,

I knew it sounded a little too good to be true. Well, I've always thought it's best to follow up with a phone call anyway.

I think that's actually a cop-out response from some poor customer service guy whose brain just short circuited...

Probably. I would hate to think he sits there all day typing out that same e-mail to people who respond to email addresses
