The other day a man walked up my driveway as I was playing with the kids handed me his supposed palo alto business card and told me the city was doing a utility upgrade. He asked for my phone number to make an appointment. I did not give it to him. I asked him to have the city contact me via phone. He himself did not look fishy and I almost believed him, but I thought just to be safe.
Any time I get a junk phone call that mentions P G & E I put the phone down. I seem to get a load of calls that mention P G & E.
I am constantly getting phone calls trying to sell me "AT&T U-Verse". I tell them I have no interest in that product, but they keep calling, at least once a week for the past year. Is this a scam, too?
NO AT&T U-Vere is legit, but I am annoyed to receive several pieces of mail as well as frequent phone calls trying to secure our business. We use another vendor, and find the massive sales effort very wasteful.
I meant: several pieces of ad mail PER WEEK from these folks.
We get 2-3 calls PER DAY!
