Just another twist to the telemarketer scam. Called the office asking for me; was extremely rude and aggressive to the girl answering the phone.
With the economy continuing to worsen I would wager you will see more and more aggressive tactics being used.
This idiot called me at my work, asking rudely for my boss. He said "Let me speak with _____.", not asking, then I hung up on him, and he called back again, hanging up on me this time. And yet again, asking rudely for my boss AGAIN.
I had a similar situation except that when I asked his name and did not understand him; he yelled what are deaf dumb or stupid..WTF?!?!?! I attempted to call back and I can an answering machine. The worst part is he hung up before I could tell him about his mother!!!
A gentlemen called from this # today asking for my boss. I advised he doesn't work out of this office and asked to take a message. As usual, he asked for an alternate contact #, and I advised that was personal. I asked for the Do Not Call department, and they transferred me to a man who was yelling and screaming at the top of his lungs that I was a liar and the National Do Not Call list was a scam and did not exist. I called the # back and asked why so rude, and they kept saying, "lady, stop calling here, we are on the do not call list." REALLY?!?! Apparently, they are a commercial collections agency looking for business, but they are not getting mine
