The Awful Truth
After opening my Skype account I notice one blocked number; autodialer #1 blocked for the day, as I nailed this bad boy down a few hours before. This means the individual has been reported to Skype and if these updates pile up, down goes the account. Not a good thing. But anyway, I see what looks like a legit number. Exciting. Cash gifting folks, or internet business bloggers no doubt, who must be excited to connect with me.
Then I see 4 phone calls coming in through this number in a matter of minutes. Fishy, uber fishy, it is, because we all know impatient, desperate people do some silly stuff. So I click the play button to soak up my voicemail and voila! I am met about 4 seconds into pre-recorded auto dialer. Not good. Really not good. This lying, lecherous individual just wasted 5 minute's worth of my time. Or 2 at best. Or heck, maybe I own them a Thank You because I am churning out this post.
The truth of the matter? Time waster. Wasted money on their end. Bad news.
So I Listen in to the Liar
Why would I call this individual a liar? Easy. The person - or company - assumed I was interested. I did not opt in to any internet home business page, or cash gifting website, or blog. Oh no, all I did was check my hotmail. I was assaulted with promises of $100 to $200 each week. Great. But I never asked for this in the first place. 4 calls, one message. Empty promises. The autodialer knew no better but the person behind the buy, or the call, has much to learn. I do not care. 99% of people do not care.
