    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

  • Comments RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

“John from shipping” called…again…and again…

Filed under: Telemarketing Scams & Robocalls — Charlie Summers @ 1:05 pm

Here’s another oldie-but-goodie; “John from shipping,” with his stammering delivery designed to give you the warm fuzzies about a real-person calling you in a desperate and unsuccessful attempt to hide the fact that it’s just another slimeball out to steal your money:

“Hi, uh, this is John from the shipping department of Emergency Medical Alert, um, I was calling to uh schedule delivery of your medical alert system, it’s, uh, the fallen and I can’t get up type of system you’ve seen on TV, looks like the system been recommended by thousands of hospitals and medical professionals, uh, let’s see, says here that the system’s already been paid for, looks like you’re getting the system because, uh, either yourself, a friend, a family member or maybe someone you know who’s experienced a fall in the past so, uh, again, s’already been paid for, so there’s no cost to you whatsoever. Also says here that the shipping has already been paid for, so to, uh, schedule the delivery of your emergency medical alert system press one; again to, uh, have your system shipped out to you, press one now. Press 5 to decline the shippment of your system. (New Voice) If you already have a medical alert system, please disregard this message. Again, if you already have a medical alert system, please disregard this message.”

The punctuation might be wrong, but after countless calls from this particular scammer, I’m pretty sure I have all the “uhs” and “ums” in the right places. Got this one again this afternoon, so it’s not only old, it’s still fresh.
