The best invention related to the home telephone has to be Caller ID, that is, beside the phone itself. I wish there were a foolproof method to only allow callers that I wish to speak to – to be able to ring my phone. Actually – I’ve used Google Voice along with a Distinctive Ring number – to go a long way in this direction – and I wrote about it here.
The gall that some people/companies have in their directives to us, their callees, is beyond belief. Just think about the disclosure that many companies put at the bottom of their FAX cover letters.
This very importan message that we recklessly faxed to your machine in a completely unsecure manner is TOP SECRET and if we sent it to the wrong place (you) then you should not read it.
Now there is the automated nuisance telephone call that they are making to random telephone numbers. Take a listen (Phone Message link below). It actually states that if you are not who we are calling – do not listen! In this case – they seem to be looking for JOYCE MILLER and I don’t even know anyone by that name. Okay, the cat is out of the bag – now you know that I did listen.
Yeah, well, if you are really harassing people and calling randomly without doing any homework – why don’t you just go blank yourself!
This collection company seems to have accumulated quite a reputation as evidenced by comments from several of their targets.
