Telemarketers Are Evil

So who is this entity behind the telemarketer whose phone number comes up as (424) 239-5373? Who claim to be with “VR Interview?” I’ll tell you what they are. They’re rude, annoying and conducting illegal telemarketer practices.

How we came to know this phone number is that they started calling my wife.

Over the last four days, they called her TWELVE TIMES. After a couple of calls my wife even managed to say “Do not call” to the caller on the other end. Then they called right back. What kind of asshole does that?

Usually illegal telemarketers will not engage in conversation. The moment you start even muttering anything about not wanting them to call, they hang up so they legally can say they never heard you say the magic phrase.

But this one, the second my wife answered her phone, would say “Do not call me!” They heard. And then called her right back.

On Tuesday, July 19th, 2016, they called her SEVEN times. She, like many others, had to block the number to stop this aggravating assault.

WTF?

If you pipe in “who is 424-239-5373” in your search engine, you’ll see that on websites like 800Notes, Number Guru, Directory Wiki Info, and Who Calls Me, that this number is based out of the Los Angeles region, and some think more specifically, out of Beverly Hills, Carson or Compton area.

How to deal with telemarketers is part of this experience I had today…. check it out and have some fun!

The telemarketer phone number 714-923-1942 has been calling me every day for almost 2 weeks straight.  No messages, they just call and hang up if I don’t answer.  It had the same area code from a press agent I’ve been dealing with of late, but alas, the rest of the number didn’t match up and “she” never left a message.

So today the phone rang while I was sitting next to it.  Ha!  I’m in one of those moods where “I’m going to call you on it if you’re stupid enough to do it to me” moods,  so I answered.  After all these missed calls, how could I possibly not pick up today?  Turns out this phone number, 714-923-1942 is for Advanced Access.

I forget his name, but he was real polite, real smooth and real fast.

Mr AA asked “How Are you today?”

‘I’m fantastic.  How are you?’

“I’m great, thank you for asking.”

He explained he’s from Advanced Access and his organization is in the business of creating web sites for real estate businesses.

‘That’s great and sounds like a wonderful service!’, I said.

“Are you in the real estate industry?”

‘No, I’m not.’
