Yeah they have been pulling that stuff for several months now, that's why I don't take the call unless I happen to have the site in front of me. Otherwise I call back after reviewing the board.@sstsau wrote:
I received a call from a 415 area code number today, which turned out to be a scheduler from Marketforce. She said that the 415 number was their new number. Just thought I'd post this in case some of you receive calls from this new number and don't want to miss it.
It was definitely frustrating though that the scheduler tried offering me 2 shops below the current job-board-listed prices. Good thing I had looked at the job board last night. When I called her out on it, she just said, "Oh, sorry about that...", then offered me the job-board price, SMH. One shop I was able to get higher on, which I ended up accepting; but the other was a no-go.
@KokoBWare Strangely enough, after the 415 call on Thursday, I've received a few calls from their regular 906 number yesterday and today. So maybe they will call from 2 numbers now, or the scheduler on Thursday didn't understand my question about the 415 number...?
@Morledzep When I lived in CA, they would call me early in the morning. It annoyed me at times because I have difficulty sleeping and the calls would wake me up on weekends when I was trying to catch up on sleep, lol. Now that I'm in the midwest, they tend to call early evening...right when I'm making dinner.
@SoCalMama That's terrifying! I hope everyone was okay!
It seems like Marketforce calls shoppers on the West coast/CA in the morning pretty regularly then, from what SoCalMama reports and my own experiences while living in CA.
I literally said, "I am working with concentrated sulfuric acid, "
