Hi: For the past 2 weeks I've been getting a phone call from 1-888-472-2222 and anytime I pick up I get no answer. When you google this number it says it is a call from Shaw Cable. I checked Shaw`s site and it is Shaw`s phone number. Has anyone else here been getting this call and had someone reply to your "Hello"? It is really annoying.
It is outsourced telemarketing, and it is an auto-dialer. I know, cuz that was my job last summer. The specific call centre I worked at is no longer doing Shaw, but outbound call centres are a dime a dozen.
The agents taking the calls were outsourced, but if they got a sale, the customer would be transferred to an order entry agent, who would be an actual Shaw employee.
I've received calls from this number, one just a few minutes ago, but like all "unknown" calls I never answer. If it's a legitimate call a voice mail message will be left; if from some bastard, no message is left (bastard-an illegitimate thing or entity).
