  5. The "i can't hear you" line, drives them nuts. also the bad phone line bit. scratching on the phone when thay talk. Thay are started to pass the caller id as a local number awhile ago, that really throws up the flag when its the same 3-digit prefix as yours. Everything from tech support scams to back pain and everything you can think of. Thay have really killed off the telemarketing industry, and not in a good way.

By Maytal Levi | September 13, 2018 at 8:29 PM EST - Updated September 13 at 8:38 PM CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A local tow truck company is sending 10 trucks down to the Carolinas to help move vehicles stuck in flood waters. Priority Towing says since they’r’e already going down there, they’re hoping to fill their truck beds with supplies. The owner of the company, Bob Meyer, says FEMA called and asked if they would help "I have 50 drivers and all of them want to go and a lot of them don't realize they got to stay here to work also but, yeah, we have a lot of volunteers ready to go," said Meyer. The company drove down to Texas last year to help with relief following Hurricane Harvey. His crew spent 44 days down there towing around 250,000 vehicles. Meyer isn't sure what the aftermath of Florence will look like yet, but he worries it might resemble Harvey. "Vehicles are everywhere and it water is getting 3 to 4 feet deep it's going into all your electrical components, your brakes, everything and usually the insurance just totals them out," said Meyer. FEMA is paying for fuel and board. "We up the insurance cause there's a lot that can happen and then we donate a lot of water and stuff," said Meyer. Priority Towing is heading down Sunday at noon. They're accepting donations at the shop located at 4119 Spring Grove Avenue.
  7. http://www.wfmz.com/news/berks/tow-truck-company-heads-to-hurricane-zone/794244671 READING, Pa. - The call has been made. "If you've been asked to evacuate, don't wait," said North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper. "Leave now." Thousands are answering the call to evacuate as Hurricane Florence twirls toward the eastern seaboard, but one Berks County-based tow truck operator is planning a trip toward the storm. "They're telling us Saturday, but we are going to hold off a little bit due to the hurricane hovering over North Carolina [on] Friday night at midnight," said Will Arndt, owner of Arndt's Recovery Solutions in Heidelberg Township. It's not the first time Arndt has taken his tow truck to areas hit hard by hurricanes. "We did it last year for Hurricane Harvey," said Arndt. "[A] couple of local companies went down to Houston, Texas, and we were down there for quite some time." Working on the side of a busy road to recover a car can be difficult, but Arndt said post-hurricane, things are much worse. "Something you can't really describe," Arndt said. "You walk into it and you go to work." The work won't be easy, as the need to remove ruined cars will remain nearly constant. "On an average day in Houston, we did about eight to 12 cars," Arndt explained. In addition to bringing his towing experience, he'll also be hauling much-needed water and food. "Right now, my company is going to be picking up pallets of water from Sam's Club, and we're going to be transporting probably three pallets of water out to them, plus whatever the food bank provides," Arndt said. Arndt is also prepared for the emotional aspect of dealing with those in dire circumstances and said it comes with the territory. "Kinda try not to dawn on the situation," Arndt said. "Cars can be replaced, people can't. Property can be replaced, people can't." As for how much time he'll spend down south? "We're gonna be down there until the job is done," he said.

  9. https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/06/us/ford-f-150-recall/index.html (CNN)Ford has recalled about 2 million F-150 pickup trucks in North America because a seat belt mechanism has started fires. The company said it was aware of 17 reports in the United States where smoke or fires broke out, and another six cases in Canada, but said it didn't know of any accidents or injuries that resulted. The company blamed the issue on the vehicle's seat belt pretensioners, equipment designed to help secure passengers in the event of an accident or crash by reducing the slack in seat belts. The equipment uses a small device that emits gas, Ford said, which could ignite if there are "excessive sparks," causing insulation and carpets inside the truck to catch fire. The recall affects 2015-2018 F-150 Regular Cab and SuperCrew Cab vehicles manufactured at its Dearborn Assembly Plant in Michigan and its Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri, Ford said in a statement. The lion's share of vehicles affected -- about 1.6 million -- are in the United States, while about 340,000 are in Canada and nearly 37,000 are in Mexico, Ford said. "Dealers will remove insulation material from the B-pillar trim, remove remnants of wiring harness tape in the B-pillar area, and apply heat-resistant tape to the carpet and its insulation," Ford's statement said. "Dealers also will modify the back interior panels of Regular Cab vehicles." The company will conduct the repairs at no cost to customers, it added.
