I got a call from number 603-214-3695 today on my cell phone. The person on the other end sounds as if she is of Indian descent. She starts the call off assuring me that this is not a sales call and they are not trying to sell me anything. She mentions the name of the company that she represents but she says it so fast and her dialect is so thick that I can't make it out. I ask two or three different times at no avail for the name of the company that is trying contact me. The women complies with my request but says the name so fast that I can't make it out. All I could hear is something or the other "Home Security" (I think).
As soon as I'm told that this is not a sales call and that she is not trying to sell me anything, the agent bombards me with a series of questions that are entirely too personal to reveal to a stranger. She asks me if I have a home security system, to which I reply, "yes, I already have all of that taken care of." She asks me if I check the batteries in it every month, at which I reply, "I already have all of that taken care of." She asks me if I have a fire extinguisher, to which I reply, "I already have all of that taken care of." She then finally asks me if I own my home. I ask, "who are you?" She restates the name of the company to which I can not make out what she is trying to say. At this point, I simply end the call and hang up on her.
I decided to call the number back to see if I could get an agent that speaks clearly. I want to be able to tell at least who is calling me. I ask myself, "What's the harm? They already have your number." When I called back, however, I did not get to speak with an agent. When I called back, I got a recording saying that they thank me for my return call and if I no longer care to receive calls from them - for me to press "1" and allow 72 hours for the request to precess (or something like that).
What gall for an anonymous person to call me and ask me about my home's security system. etc. Who would answer these kinds of questions? Who do they think they are to call me without my consent and use my minutes? I wonder if there is a way to tell if someone has sold your number?
Have any of you received a call from this number? I did a quick Google but from what I can tell, some people have received a call from this number but the calls appeared to be about identity theft, etc.
