Funny bit about that. So, the fact that it's Oregon cracks me up, but is otherwise coincidental. Once upon a time I got a job through a temp agency with a telephone survey firm; I will never do a calling job like that again, and the impossibility of the survey resulted in specifically unscientific results that might well have been involved in the client's decision to run two ballot measures instead of one, thus resulting in the failure of both when they could have probably passed one exactly meaningless social morality bill. Yeah. (sigh) That was some years ago. These days, well, okay, so there is this company called out of Portland, Oregon↱, and their name just happens to be attached to a solicitation call I get on my mobile. No, really, for once I looked up the number. Because it's a scam call. 823 employees providing "communications network services for telecom carriers in the United States", as the Bloomberg profile for the Portland, Oregon-based company has it. There's a call going around in the Puget Sound region: You anwer, and there is a moment of silence, and then a confused woman saying, "What? Hello? Oh, my gosh! I'm sorry, I was just ... I was having a problem with my husband. I hadn't realized someone had picked up. At any rate, I'm calling because ...", and then a fake pitch about how you used their services before. Yeah. After the third time in as many weeks, I decided to look up the number. And that's who I found. It's entirely possible someone is spoofing them, or moonlighting and forgot to hide the phone's caller data. But, yeah. Sadly, these call jobs still exist. Telephone surveys and scams.
