Database of Ruin

Yesterday we received unsolicited Rx discount cards from an “alliance” I’d not heard of which a Google search pointed to a VC company. The appearance is it’s likely data mining thing since all of your personal info is transferred to the discount “benefit” company like they are your regular insurance carrier. That was enough info for me to drop them into file 13.

Beware of Greeks bearing gifts….
