An Average of 10 Indians Call me Daily!
« on: March 11, 2006, 09:26:45 PM »
This is how serious this has got, to a point where I have to post it on these forums!

For about 4 months now, I get an average of 10 calls daily on my cell phone from Indians here in Toronto. Sometimes it reaches up to 20 calls. Sometimes as low as 1 or 2. But it is inevitable, at least on weekdays.

Who are these people and why are they calling me, you may ask?

Well, some stupid local Indian radio station has been advertising for a cheap insurance company. Their phone number happens to be the exact same as mine, including the area code. For the life of me, I don't know how this could happen? I mean even if it was advertised wrong the first time, how could they not correct it after?

I got so tired of it at one time, I told one of those Indians who called me to call the radio station which was advertising it to stop doing it because it is a personal number and not an insurance company.

Today they kept calling again, while I was at work. One time I picked up, and I told them the same story. The man was suprised, and told me:

"man, what are you talking about, I just called the company at this number, and the broker told me he was busy and to call him back, so I call back..."

Was he lying or did he really call my number before? if so, how can two individuals have the same number? it is impossible! After all, I have had this number for over 5 years now.


This better either stop or I will have to be creative a bit and do what my boss told me to do:

"When they call you, give them a quote and tell them to send you a check in advance, before you give them any real service..." hahaha  :lmao:

I doubt the number would be the same as yours.

However it could be very similar with one digit different so those people im assuming are pressing the wrong last number or something and getting you.


Just call the insurance company directly and ask them to tell the indian people to make sure that they are pressing the correct digits.

You must be joking, right? <LOL>


Ashoor, just call the radio station and threaten them with a lawsuit (for advertising a private cell phone number) if they don't stop this. LOL. I know a good lawyer if you're looking into taking this a bit further..aahahaha... Can I get your cell phone number, or should I simply listen to the radio to get it?..aahahaha.. sorry, couldn't resist.  :lmao:

Just insult them. Then they'll write letters and protest to the company.

I'd tell them that there is a new policy that anyone that wears a turban has to pay triple because there is a high chance they could be a suicide bomber and use the car as a weapon.

That will piss them off a lot.
