Wanted to speak to the owner about employee benefits. Caller said she did not have a callback number.
This company (they refer to themselves as "WNB") has called here two days in a row. Yesterday's caller wanted to speak to the owner about FMLA. Today they asked for the person in charge of employee benefits. When I asked what the call is in regards to, she said "Employee benefits." I could not get her to be more specific. She tried to get me to tell her a company email address, which I would not give. With much difficulty, I was able to get a website address out of her: http://whatsnewinbenefitsandcompensation.com I asked her to please remove us from their calling list, and her response was, "Have a nice day."
Called wanting to talk about safety information needed for OSHA. They wanted either me to go to a website of theirs while I was on the phone or give my email address so they could email the link with username and password.
The whole thing felt like a phishing scam. They would not give me the link over the phone unless I went to the website right then. Up to the point that I hung up, they were still trying to get me to give them my email address.

I received a call from this number on my personal cell phone. Person said "FDA Alert", wouldn't explain what he was talking about. Asked if I worked for a company I hadn't worked for in almost 5 years. Told the person I didn't want any calls to my personal phone. He then asked for my work nummber, which I did not give out.
Wasn't rude, but I don't appreciate these calls.
I also received a call from this number this morning and he was very rude and asking for supervisors and managers, but wouldn't leave a message with me. He hung up on me.
"Tanya" called. Very nice (totally clueless). Wanted to know If I help the company with sales. No I am the marketing director. Wanted to know if I assist the sales people with sales. I said Noooooo Marketing. Well who is in charge of sales. I said that would be the individual branch managers. We are a REAL ESTATE COMPANY. Do you assist the branch manager with sales. NO MARKETING! Then did the whole song and dance about free newsletter etc. about sales... blah blah. I told the chick. "No thanks if I have nothing to do with sales in my company...Why would I be interested in a sales newsletter." *Click*
they are calling to sell you a newsletter and their payroll services. its a telemarketing company
left three "messages" in a row. Just typing in the background, no speaking. Annoying.
They are relentless, luckily caller ID has kept them at bay. They won't identify themselves to our secretary.
I just received a call from this number and I told the woman that I wasn't interested in the "Free" HR Publication that she wanted to send me. She responds with "all right, now you are pissing me off" - I replied with "I'm sorry?" - She then hung up on me. Next time she calls, I will be sure to string her along for a bit...and really "piss her off". HA, I wish these people would get a real job and stop trying to scam businesses.
A "Travis" called from Progressive Business. They go by several different names. Scam organization wanting to send out human resources material/free newsletter. Don't fall for it. They say it's free, then send you a bill for it down the road. Decline the call & tell them to remove your number from their call list/system.
VERY rude woman demanded to speak to our benefits office immediately. I asked who she was, and she said "I'm from PBP, transfer me NOW." I asked her what PBP was, and she sat in silence for 10 seconds before stuttering "Um, Personal Business Publication or somethin'..." Um, no. Sent her into caller limbo till she hung up.
This person was looking for the director of safety in our office, or whoever might handle employee and customer safety. Polite enough, but still annoying.
Female caller was ver rude, was looking for a Buisness Devlopment Manager i asked who was calling and she just gave me her first name. I asked what the call was regarding and she said she needed to speak to someone in BDD. Very rude! I told her they dont take sales calls she said it wasnt a sales call and she would call back later.
Female called from this number, asked to speak to the director of HR. She said she was from SRU, I've never heard of that company. I told her I was the payroll admin and could help her out, she again asked to speak to the director of HR.
She wouldn't leave a name or phone number to call back. Sounds fishy!! Whoever she is, she's not getting transfered to our HR Director.
Very interesting, the caller I had said he needed to speak to someone in internet marketing. Had the name of a person who worked for us a VERY long time ago and asked to speak to them first. I had him on hold to see if he would hang up. He didn't so i transferred him to a random voicemail. Also, he cleared his throat very loudly when he was speaking to me. Very rude!
Asked to speak to Customer Service; told her she had called a bank, she then asked for branch manager. Mentioned I would get someone and then placed her on hold; looked at my phone 15 seconds later and the line had dropped.
This caller hangs up when sent to voice mail. No message. Calls often
Just got a similar call from 814-419-3001. The woman (said her name was Anita Johnson) I had on the phone was INCREDIBLY rude and was pretending to be a lawyer. She said she was from the ?Center for Education Law? and wanted to speak with someone regarding our risky hiring and firing practices. She ?demanded? to speak to the VP of Human Resources. Nice, huh? I wonder how much they sell that way.
Person called asking for Human Resources. I said "I can help you" and he said "Are you in human resources?" Again I said "I can help you" He said "Transfer me to human resources!" Very rude. Selling employer law manuals
Call went to voicemail. No message left.
They called and wanted to speak to customer service, very rude, would not give any information about themselves other than his name was kevin. After I aked him for info, he hung up on me.
