Posing as telemarketers would be entrapment wouldn't it?! Not that Santa has to follow the bill of rights or anything ...

 Maybe Santa will be deploying drones to check on our behavior that may be more cost efficient than all those elves on the shelf, more automated as well. The elf is still a manual process..

Maybe, ice crea vendors, @Broadway... or maybe those telemarketers are really Santa clones! Best way I know to separate the nice wheat from the naughty chaff!

Look, there's no way that Santa would be bugged. He would be the one bugging, to see which child is naughty, which child is nice. I wouldn't put it past him to spend his whole offseason hacking into our social media, pretending to be ice cream truck drivers, etc.

We won't need predictive analytics if we find a way to put a GPS tracker on Santa. But then again, he might value his privacy, given his line of work. Just put the tracker inside a cookie so that Santa wouldn't know he's already ingested the contraption.



 

I wouldn't be surprised if DARPA has already developed this technology and has advanced it at least to Beta testing ...

Rbaz - probably some of the same people who take tax deductions for children they don't actually have. Unbelievable.

I bet you didn't know that some households pretend to have young children by leaving out notes for Santa, even if they have no children at all or their children are grown and have left home.

I'm all for stopping these frauds. What Grinch-like behavior.
