Cast:

 

Girl

Bad guy

Voice

Narrator

 

SCENE:

 

Overhead shot, stationary, showing a large, dark SUV sitting under a streetlamp.  It is night, the light is on.  Surrounding area is dark. Girl runs out from dark, panting, hits car with her body.  Frantically looking around while also searching for her keys.  Finds them, hits button to unlock door, quickly climbs in and locks doors.

Show interior shot or shot through windshield, as girl tries to start her car unsuccessfully, then girl searching vehicle for something. 

 

Girl (muttering): 

Phone!  Phone!  Where is my phone?!  Dammit, Dammit, Dammit!

 

As she searches, we hear a hard THUD!  Girl looks up, looks around frantically.  Shot of side mirror, dark figure with mask approaching from rear of vehicle to front.  Girl screams, ducks down, raises up quickly.  Fingers hit door lock, unlocks the door, short scream hits button to lock doors again.  Bad guy outside tries door, right after it locks again.

Suddenly girl sees the dashboard, heaves a short sigh of relief, and presses a button.  Presses button again when nothing happens.

While all this is happening, bad guy out side circles vehicle, tries all doors very methodically, including hatch, pounds on doors and windows, yelling maniacally.

 

Girl: 

Come on come on come on come–

 

Voice: 

Thank you for calling Fraudstar, my name is Devon, how can I help you?

 

Girl: 

Oh thank God!  Please, you’ve got to help me–

 

Voice: 

Please hold.

 

Girl: 

No!  No, don’t go!  No-no-no–

 

Girl watches Bad guy circle vehicle and watches as he leaves, searching for something.

 

Voice: 

Thank you so much for holding. How can I help you this evening?

 

Girl: 

I need help!  There is a man in a mask chasing me trying to kill me.

 

Voice: 

Ma’am, everything is going to be alright.  Can you give me your account number?

 

Girl: 

Can’t you just caller ID me?

 

Voice: 

Yes, ma’am, we have your phone number and other information, we need to verify the account number to make sure we are helping the actual subscriber, and not someone who hasn’t paid us.  That wouldn’t be fair now, would it?

 

Girl: 

Someone is trying to kill me!!

 

Voice: 

Yes, ma’am.  Your account number, please.

 

Girl groans and screams all at once, searches glove box, sits up with a card and smiles, then screams as she looks through windshield.  Switch shot to her POV, we see Bad guy on hood, about to hit windshield with a piece of wood.  Girl screams, presses button.

 

Voice: 

Thank you for calling Fraudstar, my name is Devon, how can I help you?

 

Girl: 

Please help me!  AAAhhhh!  Someone is trying to kill me!

 

Voice: 

Yes, ma’am.  Do you have your account number?

 

Girl:

Yes, it’s  4-5-3, 2—(voice trails as narrator starts)

 

Narrator: 

With Fraudstar, you are only one, maybe two or three button clicks away from help that is hardly ever outsourced to a country where you can’t understand the accent.  Whatever your situation, whatever your circumstance, within reason, we can almost always help.  As long as your account is paid up.

 

Girl: (fading back in)

3, A, z, 4

 

Voice: 

Did you say "8" or "a"?

 

Girl: 

When?  Where?

 

Voice: 

After the "3."

 

Girl:    (pauses, looking)

A, as in apple.

 

Long pause.  Girl looks around nervously.  Bad guy is beating on the windshield

unsuccessfully with the wooden stick.

 

Voice: 

So. . .. Not an 8?

 

Girl:  (squirming uncomfortably)

Right, not an 8.

 

Bad guy gives up on windshield, slides off of hood, and starts attacking random windows.

 

Voice: 

Ma’am, according to our records, you are not currently a customer.  Would you like to reapply for our service?

 

Girl: 

Please, someone is trying to kill me!

 

Voice: 

Yes ma’am.  Let me quickly get your credit card number.

 

Girl screams, searches purse for credit card.  She pulls out wallet, while Bad guy bangs on driver’s side window.

 

Girl: 

Found it! Found it!

 

Voice: 

Yes, ma’am, go right ahead with that number.

 

Girl: 

4-3-3-7– (fade out)

 

Narrator: 

With the safety and security of Fraudstar, you can rest assured in the knowledge that help is only several button clicks and five to ten minutes of confirmation away, with the only caveat that we may need a blood or DNA sample in the future to fully verify identity for security purposes, and to make sure we don’t get a charge-back on your credit card.  Whether it is your safety our financial security, you just can’t be too careful.

 

Girl:  (fading in) 

–Expiration is 02/09.  Can you call 911 for me now?

 

Voice: 

As soon as the credit card is approved, ma’am.  We’re almost there.

 

Pause, as girl skitters around in seat, Bad guy is up on the roof, banging it with a stick, and then back on the ground, banging on the doors and windows. He goes to the front of the vehicle, and starts hitting the grill and headlights.  Girl whimpers with each hit.

 

Voice: 

I’m sorry ma’am, we had an error with the card.  Can you repeat the number again please?

 

Narrator: 

Fraudstar is available on all AMC vehicles standard.  The equipment is, anyway.  The service, you still have to pay for.  Every month.  Forever.  We could offer it as included with the purchase of the vehicle, but we prefer to gouge the customer a little extra.  It’s called "customer service," and it’s what we do to you.  I mean for you.

 

Girl: 

Can you please Call 911 now?

 

Voice: 

Thank you for subscribing to Fraudstar.  Would you like to upgrade to our gold Fraudstar service?

 

Girl: 

NO!!  Just call 911!!  Please!!

 

Girl is sobbing.

 

Voice: 

Yes, ma’am.

 

Long pause.

 

Voice: 

It’s just that 911 service is only available with gold Fraudstar.

 

Girl: 

Yes!  Yes!  Yes!  Oh My God!!  Just do it!!  Do whatever it takes!!

 

Voice: 

Yes, ma’am.  Hold please.

 

Meanwhile, Bad guy continues to hit car with his stick.

 

Voice: 

There you go, ma’am, all signed up for our gold Fraudstar, the premier service offered by Fraudstar–

 

Girl: (screaming)

 JUST CALL 911!!!

 

Pause, then another pause.

 

Voice: 

Ma’am, may I ask what the nature of the emergency is?  Have you been in an accident?

 

Girl: (cowering on floor)

Someone is trying to kill me!!

 

Voice: 

There has been no collision that we can detect, no airbags have been deployed.

 

girl continues to sob

 

Voice: 

Ma’am, we noticed that your vehicle is locked.  Are you locked out of your vehicle?  One of the services we offer is remote unlocking of the doors. Please wait while we activate this service, it may take a moment.

 

Girl: 

NO !!  DON’T!!  WAIT!!! STOP!!!

 

Close up on girl’s face.

 

Girl: (whimpering):

No, no,   no. . . . no. . . .no….no..

 

Close shot of door, and lock unlocking, audible clicks in unison.  Show gloved hand of Bad guy, pulling on door handle.  Audible scream of girl, and shot pulls back and away, to original overhead 3/4 shot.

 

Narrator:

Fraudstar.  Helping people and saving lives.  It’s what we do.

 

Fade out.
