Employee Revenge

Has anyone experienced this situation? I shopped an appliance store and I had to give out a phone number and email to monitor for contact attempts. After I told the salesman that I had changed my mind, I started getting hang ups and my email has blown up with sales people claiming I had gone on their website and requested information about mortgages, health insurance, time shares, etc. The calls don't leave a message and if I answer the phone it is a hang up. I feel strongly that it is that particular salesman because the phones have a 512 area code. What do you do?

I had this happen once from a car dealership. First, I learned a lesson: Use a temporary phone number and email address whenever possible.

I contacted my scheduler and said that I was having a problem: The car salesman was calling me 10-12 times a day from different phone numbers. He was also sending several emails each day. I don't know what happened thereafter, but the calls completely stopped. I suspect that it was passed on to the project manager and then to the client...

Hard work builds character and homework is good for your soul.
For awhile, one of the hubby's old phones called a woman many times per day, every day. He was not using the phone. He was working, talking in person with other people, eating, etc. This did not involve a mystery shop. It involved a bat-crap crazy phone. I am not defending the salesperson. I merely point out that for whatever reason, phones can call when no one is directly operating them.

Man! This why we have a "junk phone"! Phone creeps give me the eeby jeebies even at my age. With our plan it's just as cheep to have an extra phone - it's a funky cheapie, but we use the # to give out just for verification purposes.
I've mentioned this before, never give out your regular phone# that rings. I use a Google Voice# that is associated with my cell or home #. It's free to create and it's a free phone#. You have the option to forward that # to your cell/home to ring otherwise anyone that calls the Goog Voice# wont bother you. You'll get an email and voice transcription of the msg. Always use a separate gmail address for mystery shopping. See google voice/hangouts for creating the new phone#.
I just won a 25.00 restaurant gift card from Nissan..so, I go to pick it up and I'm met by a very aggressive salesman trying to sell me a car (what else). I tell him, I'm not buying a car, am here to pick up my gift, they mailed me the promotion. I was asked and gave my # out...so, I get home and here comes an odd # and someone speaking in a different language. I now am getting odd numbers and hang ups, lesson learned.

The internet doesn't make you smart. It makes you good at regurgitation.
I always use to get calls from the MF call center until I started using the Google Voice#. Now my phone doesn't ring anymore so I'm not bothered. I just get an email that someone called and a transcription.

Never ever use your "real" email or phone number.

With the heavy accents some of those callers have I bet those messages are VERY interesting to read :-)

Not only does Google Voice translate the call, they record it for you to playback anytime in your email.

I don't know anyone who hasn't gotten those, or a version of it. It's always a way to hard-sell.
