Default 1-888-472-2222

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.

I got that but they actually answered.

If you have voicemail, let it go to voicemail and see if they leave a message.

When you answer, say hello a few times. Sometimes they use an auto-dialer and it takes a few seconds for an actual person to then take over.

I have it going to answering machine when I don't pick up, and I say Hello serveral times when I do answer. I hear clicking noises, but no one answers. Guess I just won't answer anymore.

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.

These guys offer smoking 12 month deals. I turned it down. I bet if I phone Shaw and ask for the same deal, Shaw will say I'm crazy.
