I am managing two different apartment complexes right now due to another manager being out on leave. I have had this now at each complex so I know scammers are at work on a scam so old it should be drawing Social Security!
They call from a blocked phone number and ask for the model of the copier. I asked him who he was from, at the first complex he said he was from "your copier supply company" when I said if he really was from them, then he would know the model of our copier already. He then told me to "Shut up you (C word)" the second time he went right to the profanity the second I asked who he was from. Gotta love the idiots out there.
I actually had a guy call me back and call me a female dog when I wouldn't play nice and give him the model number
Our faxes come electronically to my email box and I dispurse them; so every once in a while I still see the "I am the desposed King of (name your country)" and need your help and will give you millions in return faxes
and here is sort of one; I can't remember the whole conversation or exact wording; but this happened about two weeks ago.
first of all, I went on line and ordered an "As Seen on TV Item"
- yeah I know; but I figured it wasn't that expensive and if it doesn't work oh well. So, anyway about two weeks ago I started getting calls on my cell phone from an 866 number; for two days I didn't answer (and they called 7 times per day
) so I figured the next day if they call I will answer, but answer angrily like "yeah, what do you want". So, they do call and that is how I answered; and it is someone from that company thanking me for ordering the thingamajig and to thank you we want to send you a $50 (I think) gift card and some other things.. Now, I don't know why if they want to send it to me; they didn't just send it to me instead of calling, so it sounded off to me; so I told her no thanks and she said oh, but its blah, blah blah..and I said no thanks I don't want it, I only want what I ordered..she got silent and then said "okay, I'll put you down as a no" and I said right and hung up.
kinda funny, that last week I got an email from the company that my item is on backorder
