An unwanted call from this purported Scarborough, Ontario, Canada landline arrived today. When the answering machine picked up, the caller left no message, just dead space. Robocallers (unlawful telemarketers) do this all the time while trolling the phone lines seeking gullible schmucks to victimize. Posters have reported a wide variety of schemes by which this scam artist practices telephone thievery. To avoid becoming a victim of these telecriminals, LET YOUR ANSWERING MACHINE TAKE THEIR PATHETIC CALLS.

Say they are calling from York University (or McMaster, or Guelph, etc.) and that they want to speak with the owner about some work we did on a project there . . . they are actually selling advertising for a construction magazine which is showcasing a particular project, & General Contractor. Whoever the General Contractor was, on the project, the article is about them, and they provide the magazine with a list of all the trades. The G.C. gets free publicity, by having an article written about them in this magazine, The caller tries to "guilt" the trades to purchase advertising - a great opportunity, so many G.C..'s, architects, etc., will see their advertisement , you'll be supporting the G.C. who awarded the work to you . . .

The male calling said we were eligible for a free energy consumption assessment. I believe they try to sell you product or try to convince you to sign a contract when they come to your home. He ended up saying we were not eligible as our furnace is not 8 years or older.
