This is how the conversation went:
Him: Hello, how are you?
Me: Good, you?
Him: You are the first person today to ask me how I am. Thank you for your concern.
Me: That's OK.
Him: (Something about energy and a free device.) How many exhaust fans do you have in your house?
Me: I think I had a call about this the other week.
Him: Get lost!
And then he hung up.
I did not answer but called back after 5:00pm close of business hours like I usually do with unrecognised numbers. There was no robo message or anything. No voice mail box, just nothing. My guess is it's a scam or telemarketer. I have now blocked this number. I did not answer the call but after reading comments realised it was a scam call I think is a scam, I check the website said they will not cold call you, likely scam and I fell for that they had my number and ask my address and email likely to impersonate me for fraud or thief.
I should have declined it when they are very pushy and insisted they needed Commission through the phone call, and also I notice but was hesitate when the call change voice.
Beware people when you didn't put your details on a website for example insurance company they wouldn't have call you.
And if they call you and claim from a website you never visit before are likely scam cause they already have your information.
They called me on a PUBLIC HOLIDAY !!!!!!
Same Indian Scammers. GOVT & Telcos NEED TO CRACK DOWN and actually do something about these scammers.
NOTHING is getting done.
Caller asked whether I spoke to John previously about energy saving incentives. Then said they are now offering free installations to reduce drafts and asked how many exhaust fans I have. I told him I was not interested and before I could tell him to take me off their calling list, he hung up on me without a word. Have blocked this number. Unknown caller and no caller message. Checked here to confirm it is a scam/spam. Now blocked and deleted Caller: I don’t know
I had a missed call from this number after 5.00pm. I called back and no answer, the phone just hung quickly with a few beeping sounds.
Annoying marketing or scammers.
I’ve blocked the number along with all the others. THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING DONE TO TRACE THE ORIGIN OF THE CALLS & FIND THESE SCAMMERS! They should be PUNISHED!!!
call received just before 5.
didnt recognise number, no voicemail.
Sick of these freaks calling
