Consumer Vision: Trip to Boston? No, can't have it.

Hubby got a phone call today from a guy who identified himself as Frederick from Consumer Vision, which as it turns out is a legit market research firm here in Toronto. He says they are recruiting smart car owners to attend a focus group in Boston (they'll take care of airfare and hotel etc) the weekend of September 16th. Hubby says,"sounds great". Frederick then asks his age. Hubby responds. Frederick says, "oh, sorry you're not eligible. We'll put you on a waiting list in case someone cancels". Hubby is more than unimpressed, he's insulted.

We believe that they got our contact info from MB Canada.

I'm wondering if anyone else has received a similar call.
