Pushy Telemarketer - 1&1.com
Pushy Telemarketing, 1&1 Phone, 1&1 Sales
6-12-12, approx 10am PDT. I received call from 904-701-0308 or 9047010308
There is a pause and then a young woman comes on the line and asks to speak to the owner. She is pushy and rude. She says she is calling from 1&1.com and asks if I am at the computer and can go look up something with her. I tell her she is calling an order line. She then asks if this is (my business name), and I again tell her she is calling an order line and I hang up. It seemed like a scam to me as she was too pushy. High pressure sales. See Google results for 1&1 scam
The caller was an idiot. What company calls a competitor and tries to sell them a website? They knew who they were calling. I do website design and hosting, among many personal Internet services, like Webmaster For Hire services and my speciality of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) since 1994.
I called (904) 701-0308 back and there is a recording of a woman with a Southern accent with a noisy call center in the background, and to leave a message for their Customer Service dept. It then pauses and then says to speak to a Live operator press 1. It rings a few times and then a recording of a man comes on the line and asks for you to leave your name, business name and phone #.
Other telemarketing complaints site show this as they are giving away "free websites".
Don't call us back.
