Just got a robo call from Trump campaign wanting me to donate. This phone has been crazy today with unwanted calls. Just when I thought things were getting better. I got one at 10:30 last night. Guess I will got to FTC and report them.

It's not Trump's campaign doing that. I haven't received any robocalls on my phone. It's probably a scam. There are a lot of imposters out there.Check for the original origin and location of the messages

I'd be overjoyed at anyone joining me in setting up a Foundation with the sole purpose of paying student debts. It's embarrassing and sad that this country can't put ALL their young adults through college.

I am in the process of moving from Alaska to Florida and am looking online to purchase an RV to live in for a few months when I arrive. I had a saleswomen at a dealership refer me to an online site to look at an RV that me the criteria I listed. The RV was listed at $8,795. During back and forth emails she told me the RV costs $11,090. When I questioned the cost she said her sails manager had been out for 3 days and when he returned to work he freaked out about the cost of 3 new trade-in and increased their sales prices. She told me the price had been updated on line. I have a screen shot of the lower price. can the dealership ask me to pay the new higher price or do they have to honor the first price they showed me. I fell in love with the RV and the original purchase price was such a good deal. I'm afraid if I push too hard they will deny financing or make sure I pay a higher interest rate.

You may find the information in this FTC article of help — Are Car Ads Taking You for a Ride?

You also may want to contact the state Attorney General in the state where the dealer is located.

Thank you so much for the information, good luck!
