My grandfather would get up at dawn and drive to the store for his paper. Then he had surgery and couldn't drive for several weeks. After I caught him trying to walk to the store for his paper I called and started a subscription for him with my name, address, and number as the bill to info and his as the delivery address. All went well for about a year. Then his mental state started to decline and I let the subscription expire since he was no longer reading it.
Then the calls started. I tried telling them to remove me from the list and they always promised they would then a week or two later they would call again. I tried telling them that my grandfather was no longer in a state of mind to even care about the paper. They would apologize and promise to remove me from the list. Then a week or two later they would call again. This went on for months.
Then he fell and broke his hip and they called. This time I told them he was 89 and in the hospital and to please stop calling.
A week later he died and a week after that they called again. I told them that he had died and offered to send a copy of his death certificate. And they have finally stopped calling...so far.
