I often get these contact form submissions on joeaudette.com and on mojoportal.com where people are pitching to get my site to the top of google, no big deal, I delete them, but yesterday was the first time I got one by phone.
Yesterday at about 2PM I got a phone call on my cell phone from 951-813-2184 that went like this:
- me: hello?
- caller: is this the tree service?
- me: i think you have the wrong number
- caller: are you Source Tree Solutions?
- me: that is my company but it is a software company not a tree service
- caller: oh, well you're listed in the yellow pages under tree service
- me: that's news to me, I didn't know I had a listing in the yellow pages
- caller: well are you interested in getting your site to the top of google?
- me: oh my God, you gotta be kidding me
- caller: well what do you do for advertising
- me: Dude! you don't know the first thing about me, my business or my web site, I don't need your SEO spam phone calls, please never call this number again, click
I chuckled for about 15 minutes after that, but hope it is not the start of a trend of spammy phone calls.
