(808) 777-8888 recorded 23 August 2017 (Computer voice recognition screening with "Jane" a Medical Alert system specialist, alarm offer') SCAM!
Caller ID: "BLANK"
An unwanted and annoying computer voice recognition screening call featuring "Jane" who pronounces the J in her name like the letters in "Zsa-Zsa" (as in "Zsa-Zsa Gabor"). I gave the computer screener a hard time by constantly asking "Jane" how she was doing but the bot disconnected the call before long.
I had to laugh at an inaccurate statement "Jane" made about senior citizens: "...I show here that you are part of an age group that requires a higher rate of falls..." If it were a real person on her end I would have corrected her and told her that only tv and movie stunt men are required to fall. I guess I shouldn't complain, usually the poor grammar of these messages drives me up the wall, but the grammar was good on this call.
Their "shotgun" approach to making mass phone calls, and their total disregard of the Do Not Call list certainly tells us a lot about their business ethic, doesn't it?
The best way to prevent these scammers from calling you is to make them NOT want to call you in the first place. The best way to do this is to sound like you're interested in their offer, but waste their valuable time while you pretend to be interested with their offer. The following call was not long before they disconnected me when my answers showed I was not cooperating with the bot.
Here is a transcript of their unwanted, intrusive, insulting screening and sales call:
"This call is now being recorded."
<me:> "Hello? Hello? Hello?"
<female voice:> "Hello. This is Jane. I'm a Medical Alert System Specialist on a recorded line. Can you hear me okay?"
<me:> "I can hear you."
<female voice:> "Great. I'm with Senior Care Authority, and I show here that you are part of an age group that requires a higher rate of falls, injuries, and health issues. Our records indicate..."
<me:> "Hello, how are you?"
<female voice:> "...that you may fall into a category that qualifies for a special program to get you a medical alert system. Are you over the age of 65?"
<me:> "What did you say your name was?"
<female voice:> "Are you over the age of 65?"
<me:> "Hello? Uh...correct, yes."
<female voice:> "Do you use a cane or a walker?"
<female voice:> "So what I'm going to do now is pull one of our Customer Care agents into the line to go over the next steps. Okay?"
<me:> "What, what's your name again?"
<female voice:> "Hello, this is Jane."
<me:> "Jane. How are you Jane?"
<female voice:> "Yes?"
<me:> "Yes, how are you doing?"
<abrupt disconnect by them>
