They called me but I didn't answer. Then I called them back. They have this very sophisticated switchboard system so I think it could fool some people. You wait a little and then you get a recorded message that an operator will be with you shortly. The person I talked to sounded like she might be from a far eastern country (I'm not going to mention the country because I don't want people to think people of that country always scam others) and gave the same story as someone else here, claiming that I was paying incredibly high interest rates on a credit card, naming just a couple. But the one she said was incredibly high was actually very low. I laughed and asked them where they got this information about my rates from, because she was actually very wrong (I didn't reveal my actual rates, however) and the person on the other end was very silent. It was clear that she wasn't sure what to do at this point. Made me wonder if the people that are hired don't even know that they are part of a scam, because an actual scammer/ psychopath would probably be a lot smoother and have a ready answer. She started in on her memorized spiel again. I told her she must have the wrong person, that she must have her records wrong and that I was just wasting her time. My guess is that it's probably the only job this woman could get, she won't make very much money and she will realize that it's a scam and quit. She seemed too nice to be doing this. I'd advise people to be polite when dealing with people. Just because someone is calling from a scam outfit, doesn't mean they intend to be part of a scam. They could be naive and are desperate for work and actually believe that they are helping people to get lower cc rates.
2nd time in two weeks that I got the same call with just blank space on voice mail. Assume address by way of Internet search.
These telemarketers CONTINUE TO HARASS ME EVERY OTHER DAY. When I ask them to stop calling me they hang up the phone. Two days later they are calling my phone using another number. Each time, I file a complaint while including the new number. Why is this continuing?
