Called my work phone w/ a specific extension. Didn't answer it. No message.
A belligerent woman who seemed to not know how to converse called our business, asking for an employee who hasn't worked with us since mid-2008 to "follow up" about software development services. I said that we were not interested. She then asked, "Aren't you the RECEPTIONIST?" "Yes." "Then you wouldn't know." I told her that since that individual she had allegedly spoken with had been gone for the past year and a half, that we must not be interested, as no one else at our company had expressed interest during that time. She reiterated how I "wouldn't know," so I laughed, and she hung up.
She then called back moments later and asked for a man I had never heard of, to which I replied, "We have no one here by that name." She hung up.
Exact same situation as above!
Caller rung our company, asked for an employee who retired in November 2007. When told that no-one works here with that name since 2007, she claimed that she had paid the employee a sum of £5000 for "software development services" and seeing as he is absent, she wanted our company to refund her. I asked her for proof of this transaction, and she became very evasive and said she would provide said proof after she received the £5000. I lied and told her that I had another person to deal with, and hung up.
I have since blocked the number and have had no further contact since.
(Disregard above number (402) 433-2275. Should be 800-433-2275.)
Infobright called to follow up on a whitepaper that was downloaded.
sick of them
These folks call and hang up as soon as you answer. I Googled the number and came up with a site "CallCenterOps.com" which had the following posting:

Well I just opened a Center and we fell in love with the system that we actually now represent it, email me your thoughts or needs, or provide me with your contact info, there is a lot to think about when taking a decision like that, and I beleive that the first thing to have clear is: BUDGET?
Didn't get much of a page displayed from his web address, so I closed it.
He claim that I am SAP something but I know SAP I am SAP BI consultant and it is very costly software so a small hotel can not implement even frenchise hotel do not have it. but this fellow ask for pay roll and employee and other information which no one want to disclose. Beware, hang up imminently.
This caller is suspicious for me. It began with French Lady trying to get information about company they claim they are from SAP. Next time it was a man with the name Frank. He has no clue what to ask. This is fictitious caller beware.
