Scams Bring The Victim Together

, , , | Working | June 8, 2017

(I get a call on my cell phone about lowering my credit card interest rates. I don’t actually have a credit card, so I know it’s fake, but I push the button to speak to a representative so I can request to have my number taken off their list. I am treated to a series of ear-piercing numbers, and then I hear this:)

Caller #1: “I only have $200 in credit card bills. I don’t need my rates lowered.”

Me: “Wait, why am I…”

Caller #2: “I don’t have a credit card at all, so I know this is a scam and you should all be ashamed of yourselves! I just want my number taken off your system!”

Me: “Me, too! How many of us are on this call?!”

Caller #2: “There’s at least three of us… What in the world?”

Me: “And we’re all people who got called; I don’t think there’s even a representative on the line!”

(We all start to chuckle.)

Caller #1: “Welcome to America. I don’t believe this.”

Caller #2: “This is actually kind of funny. Well, ladies, this just goes to prove it’s a scam!”

Me: “Sure does!”

Caller #1: “At least we have solidarity!”

(We all wished each other a good day and hung up laughing. In the end it was pretty funny, but I’d really like to know what in the world happened at the call center that we all ended up talking to each other instead of someone working for the outfit!)
