god i hate those calls, i get telemarketer calls from citibank all the time. its funny though, they are really good at making those calls but if theres a problem like they couldint deliver the credit card statement because there was no answer at my house, theres no sign of them.
citibank = citicrap
its very simple this is what i do
when any calls come from the bank i simply ask:
-at what capacity are you call me from?
- are you calling me as telemarketer to offer me new credit car or bank loan? or you are calling me regarding the existing bank or credit account i have with this bank.
- if the answer is existing bank/credit account then its official and i talk with them.
- and if the answer is that they are calling me as telemarketer (which is 95% of the time) without saying any word i just hang up. thats it. i don’t curse or get angry 'cause i don’t need tension.
its working great for me and the rate of telemarketer calls has dropped 50% for whatever reason. i am happy
