A couple of months ago, I received a call from "Feigi," claiming to be an Orange Cellular Phone customer service representative. She knew my name, and obtained my number from somewhere. (My number is not listed, at least I don't think it is.)
She wanted to send sales agent to my house to offer me a special deal. I said no, but that she could send me some information. I gave her my P. O. Box address. She said she would, but that THIS special deal was only available through an agent who visited customers' homes,...for their convenience.
I said that I didn't have the time, and was out the door to work. I do not remember telling her the name of my neighborhood.
Fortunately, my paranoia built up after living in the Shomron (Samaria) for a time, hasn't gone too lax.
Now that I have been thinking about it, I find it to be a rather odd conversation.
So, what do you think? Was this a scam? A legitimate sales technique?
Has you ever received a phone call like this in Israel, or heard of any company sending agents out to visit private residences?
Let me know your experiences.
