The more "un-smart" a radio commercial thinks you are, the more they'll repeat their phone number. For instance, if you hear an advertisement directed to high-intellect people, like a stock broker ad, they'll say their number once or twice. On the other hand, the credit problem solvers and reverse mortgage ads will repeat their number at least 3 or 4 times, like the listener is stupid. One said they would eliminate all of your debt with information the banks don't want you to know about. Then they repeated their number 7 times. I call it the "moron-meter". If a commercial repeats their phone number more than twice, it's probably a scam. Check it out and see if you agree. Just something that bugs me...
