Re: Sometimes I can't use a long password
Oh yes, banks. My bank (a local chapter of a big international financial institution) had a period when they called their clients with offers, starting the conversation with asking them for... the password.
The first time it happened I was very close to actually calling the police. I could not believe it wasn't a scam. Later they changed the policy to ask about my personal data (like month of birthday). My answer was still the same: "You are calling me so it is me who verifies you". At least they never tell get to give me the offer, which is a bonus.
