Ten minutes ago, my cell phone goes off and I do not recognize the calling number.
I say "hello?" The person says my I speak to (NW Trucker...cough, cough,) and I bark back "who are you?". Turns out it was a valid and important
professional call. I make my apologies, explain that I've been receiving both automated and live sales calls from people who shouldn't know my phone
number. Even know the year and make of my car!
An embarrassing moment. I've had my fill.
What to do about it?
I suggest we follow-up on these calls and worm the name of the company that is utilizing this 'service' and then inform them that company will be
added to a list with the intention of boycotting their product or service. We can run an expanding thread with a list-although, I'm sure the big boys
at ATS may squirm at the idea...LOL.
Even if we just do this on a personal basis enough times, perhaps adding to it by word of mouth, these people will get the hint and BACK OFF.
