I got a call from a telemarketer for some charity I’d never heard of. Told her I don’t make donations over the phone (I don’t want 90% of my donation money going to a telemarketer).
She followed the script, “We understand, as many people have the same concern.”
But then she said (I think, she was a little hard to understand), “We’ll mail information out to you. We’re just going to record your voice to verify your address.”
I asked why that was necessary, but I couldn’t understand what she mumbled. I said I wouldn’t consent to having my voice recorded, if they had my address, just send me the shit. I promptly hung up and had a case of the willies.
Did they slip some “fine print” in that my voice was going to be confimation of? Why else would a telemarketer need to record someone’s voice saying their address?
