Got a call from this number. Caller had a very strong - possibly Indian accent. He wanted my boss - didn't pronounce name correctly. . I am the call screener.
Thought I heard a faint sound of a call center in the background. Couldn't understand his name or company. The caller ID read "Unavailable". So I told him my boss was unavailable and to take us off his calling list.
I agree with not engaging the caller. "Just say no" and hang up.
Telephone numbers 469-757-8869, 469-757-8343, and 424-249-6679 continue to call our corporate office six to eight times a day. When I answer, it sounds like someone is intentionally dialing a number on the other end. When these calls started months ago, it was always someone with a strong accent asking for people in which they are unable to speak with. Now when they call nobody on the other end says hello or responds. Just beeps like they're pushing the phone buttons and then they hang up. I'm so sick of receiving calls from this number on a daily basis. This is such an interruption to my daily duties/responsibilities, and it is causing a problem and great annoyance. People or business conduct like this should just not be tolerated. These numbers should be banned and face punishment if they choose to continue the harassment.
Caller asked for boss via bosses line. Pronounced name somewhat accurately. I advised he wasn't in and asked who's calling? Advised "Ashley, Assistant to David. I'll call back" and quickly disconnected. Tried number back and receive a normal busy signal. Unable to block numbers on work line. Will attempt to be the person they're requesting even though manager is opposite gender.
