Ever have someone keep calling you and you can't rid of them? This past week that has been me.
Somehow my phone number got on a list -- a telemarketing list.
Someone keeps calling and saying, "This phone call concerns your credit-card account. Your eligibility is about to end. Please contact us immediately to keep your interest rates from rising."
The first time I heard it I was convinced someone had stolen my identity and had opened up credit-card accounts in my name. But then I realised the caller does not mention a specific credit-card company or identify the company she is calling from. If my time working customer service has taught me anything, it's that legitimate caller will identify who they are, where they are calling from and why they are calling.
Meanwhile, I am increasingly more and more frustrated with this caller. How can I make them stop before I have a nervous breakdown?
