Let Me Give You A Pizza My Mind, Part 3

| Sunnyvale, CA, USA | Working | February 26, 2013

(My boyfriend and I ordered food from a popular pizza chain and have already finished our meal. At about 11 pm we receive a phone call on his cell phone from an out of state number, saying that this is [popular pizza chain] and that they are sending someone in 5 minutes to pick up our uneaten food. Knowing that this is a prank, my boyfriend hangs up. The prankster then calls back two more times, swearing at us and threatening to come to our house to take whatever he wants. My boyfriend calls the pizza place to talk to the manager.)

Boyfriend: “Hi, I need to speak with a manager.”

Worker: “He’s busy right now.”

Boyfriend: “One of your employees just called and threatened me. I need to speak with your manager!”

Manager: “Hi, how can I help you?”

Boyfriend: “Do you have anyone working there named Gary? Or someone with a phone number from [different state]?”

Manager: “No, we do not. ”

Boyfriend: “Well, I just received a threatening phone call from a guy named Gary, stating to be from [popular pizza chain], saying that he was going to be at our house in five minutes to collect our uneaten food. He had my name, phone number, address, and credit card information.”

Manager: “Oh yeah, that’s my bad. It’s just a prankster, so don’t worry about it.”

Boyfriend: “Don’t worry about it?! This guy has all of my information and could be a crazy person! How did he get my information?”

Manager: “Well, someone called saying they were from corporate and wanted all of the information for the most recent orders.”

Boyfriend: “So you just gave it to him without checking that he was really from corporate?”

Manager: “We’ve been busy all night! I don’t have time to check about that!”

(We had to call and file a report with the police and cancel our credit card. What made it even worse is when we contacted corporate about this breach in security, their response was, “Well, we can’t do anything about it because it’s a franchised location.”)
