When I was a teenager I signed up for one of those "10 CDs for a penny" music club scams and they sent me 10 CDs. Then I just threw away every other piece of mail they sent and eventually it stopped. It was at that point that I learned that being in trouble is a fake idea
@matt I signed up for a similar thing as a teen and got some basically free stuff, and then I had horrible anxiety over the continuing mail, but in my anxiety paralysis I ignored it all and it stopped eventually. so liberating, and I learned a great lesson.
