PDA

View Full Version : Angry Little Man

Funny story, telemarketer calls my folks place looking for my dad this morning, I happen to be there dropping off the grandkids, my mom starts asking for the gals name and why she is calling and getting a number so that my dad can call back, she (telemarketer) goes into this rant about ... "I don't talk to secretaries" ... my mom blow up, hands me the phone, and the lady just gets bichy ... I hang up and leave, then from my car I call the phone number that she left for my dad (one of these scams where they are paid to put you into contact with someone ... something called Integrated Businesses) ... I was trying to find out who she worked for so I could talk to her boss, but she hangs up on me twice ... I GOT HUNG UP ON TWICE BY A TELMARKETER ... she goes "who is this" (I wouldn't answer other than to say I was his attorney, which just pissed her off) and leads to the "you are an angry little man"... so I do a reverse lookup on the number she left, and its a damn cell phone number in Indiana ... too funny ... I love how telemarketers think they have some right to talk to the owner of a company, and somehow being rude to the employee or unwittingly pissing off the owner's wife is a recipe for success ... looking forward to some *67's at 2am:) Maybe I will pretend to be a debt collector:) "Hey, we're gonna turn the power off unless you pay your bill" [okay, not realy gonna call, but the idea puts an evil smile on my face:)]

For about $8, I bought this little button that plugs inline with the phone. When telemarketers called, I just hit the button and it played a prerecorded message saying I wasn't interested and to please take me off their list. I was free to hang up and it would finish the call, or I could listen in and hear them try to argue with a machine. Nice device. It eventually wore itself out.

Another story. Called AMEX about one thing or another and got put on eternal hold with this looped message saying how much they wanted to take my call, but couldn't, etc., etc. After waiting for about 20 minutes, I recorded a message on my computer that I had gone to the gym, but that speaking to a representative was really important to me. I asked that they please remain on hold until I returned. I set the recording to play in a loop and left. When I got back, they'd hung up. How's that for customer service.

Hey, you're a law talking guy, so you, no doubt, know lots of lawyers. When you get screwed over, have a buddy of yours send demand letters (even as a lawyer, why represent yourself in the letter). If they have any sort of legitimacy, they'll pass the letters on to their lawyers, who will write you back telling you you're nuts. Write back and offer to settle. They present the offer and charge the telemarketing firm for it. This can go on for as long as you want to write letters offering to settle. Good rule of thumb is stop when you're sure they've paid their lawyer 3x what they owe you.

Depending on how many people you have calling your house from different numbers you can get call selector (you probably already have it, just call telco) and you can program up to 6 numbers that will be allowed through. You can also get ring master (another number, same line) and add 6 numbers to that. Or you could hand out your ring master number and know only to answer it as it has a special ring. If you have bundled services from your telco it's free.

Threadjacking the threadjack... Buddy of mine answered the phone once (telemarketer on the other line) when the girl asked for him. He acted like a distrought brother and told her he had died in a bad car accident the night before. He went on to tell her he did have his deceased brother's credit card and was interested in her magazines, but his credit stunk etc... just kept her going for several minutes. She was hard at it trying to make a sale... The only way we got him out of the conversation was for me to yell out (like the dad) "what the hell are you doing with your brother's credit card????" She would have made the sale on a dead man's CC..

That might call for a upgrade to Maurey or Jerry Springer. Montel talks too slow for the show to be a 1 hour, more like 3 day deal. On Springer, it's scream, hollar, undress and fight all in 30 minutes and that's all we need to see, kinda like the "Word" thread!:D

One thing about being asked to speak with someone who's gone is that we get to try to make the other person feel bad, or tell them that it could be arranged.

I'm on the Do Not Call list and almost never pickup my land line. There's an answering machine on it and when it rings 3 times, it's supposed to hang up if the call is automated. If I get one by answering (in a moment of weakness), I'll just ask for their number. When they ask why, I'll tell them that I want to call them when it's a bad time for them. Like starting at 2AM and continuing for a few hours.

This may have changed now that you can sue them for not removing you from the list but in the old days they would just throw you back into the "call again later" group if you gave them a hard time.

Note you can add a device that drops their call automatically but it produces a beep when you answer the phone. I have had good luck with the No-call lists and a unlisted number.

Anybody heard of the scam where they call your receptionist and want to update your information on a free industry publication?
We get a ton of these free publications, most being for unrelated industry... But I recently heard a horror story where they get your girl to update all your address, employees, sq footage etc and then ask for a birthdate or mothers maiden name to verify for "thier boss" and then your company gets a huge bill for the free publication...

Bri-

Sorry about that for your mom and you. I have the same issue. My Dad has been gone for 9 years and my mom still gets the "Can I speak to Mr. Si.....?" Brought her to tears for a while:mad:
Sorry to hear that brother. Yep, they sure are tactless.
