Caller name: Career Advisor
Caller type: Unknown
I am looking for a job and after being to websites like Indeed, Glassdoor, etc., I start receiving phone calls from people wanting to assist in finding me a job stating that they saw I was on "their" website. When I question them (very politely) about their purpose, they state they are wanting to assist me in finding a position with my qualifications. But when I question them about not hearing about Career Advisors or being on their website, they hang up (twice now). Believe me I am being very respectful as I am looking for a position and appreciate any help I can get but do not want to waste my time. It is just frustrating as I am waiting and hoping for job interview phone calls and get these annoying calls getting my hopes up when I see unfamiliar phone numbers.
Caller name: AMG
Caller type: Telemarketer
According to the individual (two different people that called) said that they were with AMG and offering me a better mortgage.
First individual: He called me and was offering me some new low refinance mortgage rate, asking me if I still owed X amount. I requested that he remove from their call list and he completely ignored me and continued to ask me other personal questions about my finances. I politely declined and repeated asking to remove me from his list. Again, he ignored me, I cut him off, and said "please don't call me anymore." Still, he ignored me, so I said again "take me off your call list and I am hanging up now." He actually hung up before I could hang up on him.
Second individual: This guy stated that he was from the same company and said the same thing with the mortgage rate and asked me if I owed X amount. I mentioned that someone from your company already called me and mentioned that I wasn't interested. He told me that they did not have any record that I was even called. I told him that I did not want to be called anymore and he ignored me (like the other guy) and started asking me other questions. I said "excuse me, but you're not listening" and he replied that he was listening. Again I stated, "please do stop calling me." He mumbled something and then called me an idiot and hung up.
Both individuals were extremely rude and pushy, despite the fact that I was being polite to them. I believe this is unacceptable behavior for a company, so I tried to call them back to speak with a manager and the number said that it was not a working number.
Caller type: Unknown
Asks for a "Ben Nicholas." Since there is no "Ben Nicholas" at my number, I question the nature of their call. This usually leads them to hang up on me.
Since I am neither looking for a job, as other posters have said, nor is the number called a private number (it belongs to a business, but rings at my residence), I know the caller has purchased the information from someone. I've been getting calls for "Ben Nicholas" for at least 10 of the 14 years I've been at this business!
Caller name: Waterfront
Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster
asked me what I owed on my property and had the address, when I told him he had the wrong amount he asked if it was lower when I said it was he hung up on me. THIS IS A SCAM. I then attempted to call the number back and it was not a valid number.
