I am almost willing to bet the following is true:<br><br>An enormous amount of call center work is outsourced to India....a number of huge companies, including GE, Amazon, Disney, multiple credit cards...you name it...have switched their call centers to India. Why? Because for just a few thousand a year, they can staff a full-time rep in Hyderabad, India vs. 10 times as much here. So, you take 10 semi-English speaking Indians, give them fake American names, pay them four grand a year each, and you're up and running. <br><br>It would be entirely within the realm of possibility that you were solicited for a prescreen (preapproved offer) by one of these yahoos. What makes the whole thing a failure is that their English is poor, there is too much phone line latency, and often the phone line quality just isn't very good. <br><br>Not knocking the people of India, but outsourcing call center work to India is, has always been, and will continue to be a horrible idea. <br><br>
It would be odd for the call to be clear as a bell and for the caller ID to have a company name. <br><br>Caller ID is easy to spoof, but it would usually say "New York Call" 1-212-456-7890" or something. <br><br>Nice touch calling the Secret Service...I hope they nail the bastards. <br><br>
