904-701-0308, 1&1 Phone

Pushy Telemarketer - 1&1.com

Pushy Telemarketing, 1&1 Phone, 1&1 Sales

904-701-0308

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 #. 

She said she was calling from 1&1.com or oneandone.com (forwards to 1and1.com)

Other telemarketing complaints site show this as they are giving away "free websites".

Don't call us back.

  1. They are also advertising on here with Google AdWords. That's funny.

    Look at the complaint sites and reviews and educate yourself before buying. That's healthy to have information before you buy.

  4. They call our office everyday, several times a day. They never say anything when I answer and then hang up on me. I tried to call it back today and it rang once and then nothing. Someone should do a class action suit against them for harrassment!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. I agree, they are interrupting real businesses and doing nothing but making a bad name for themselves.

  8. So how does one get their number removed from their call list? Very rude and I tried calling to back to speak with a manager and just heard conversations in the background. Some people need to get a real job and some manners.

    1. Go here: www.1and1.com/Contact
      Try calling anything but Sales. Look at their Privacy policy info, Legal info. You might have to write.

      I did not see anything that specifically mentioned it.

      You might ask for their Marketing dept and talk to a Manager in charge. Ask to be placed on their Do Not Call list (if they have one).
