    Default At&t telemarketers and new tricks

    We all get bothered by them and I mostly tell them no thanks , please take me off their list.
    Sometimes I get a bit cranky but try to make my point.


    But today was a new low.
    One calls to confirm our meeting later that day.
    He say's, Your the guy who works with his son and wanted more leads.
    Told him he was mistaken but he insists, maybe it was your son who set
    this up? (I don't work with my son)

    He was so insistent that I had to hang up.
    Their striving for business.

    I'm suprised to hear that. I find AT&T customer service to be the best around. Maybe the telemarketers are trained differently.

    The folks that call me seem to be working at their home half the time. They start off the conversation as potential customers
    and hit me with their spiel. It's annoying after several calls a week. The do not call list is worthless.

    Sometimes if you piss them off they will continue to call just to get back.

    If I had more time I would let them go through there entire production and then say no.
    I hate to waste their time and mine.

    Just goes to show the economy is only picking up for a few sectors of the population.
    I miss the good old days!

    Wait til they send you an "invoice" with "past due" stamped all over it, trying to get to sign up for something.

    Sneaky bastards.

    I advertise on craigslist so the first part of my ad says this:

    ATTENTION: YP and any other solicitors reading this. Please do not call this number. $1300 a month is too much money to be listed in the yellow pages! I'm doing fine without being listed! Thank you. Sorry Craigslist reader, had to get that said. Whew...for people that need a plumber.....

    Since then I haven't had a single call from them.

    I used to get multiple calls from the same company's all the time trying to get you to sing up just to take your money. They always knew my company name when they called and always asked to speak to the owner. At first I would be nice and just tell them no thank you, but after getting multiple calls from the same people I would tell them that the owner wasn't in and that he could be reached at 1-888-225-5322. I never got a return call from them again. This is the number to the FCC complaint line.
