GUEST,Phil Cooper How Do You Handle Telemarketers? (101* d) RE: How Do You Handle Telemarketers? 11 Feb 01


In my house there are several Mr.Cooper's. When asked if they can speak to Mr. Cooper, I ask which one. If they ask for my dad, using his first initial and middle name, I know they're reading from a directory, his friends know how he's called. I just say he's not home. If they ask for me by my legal full name, I know it's a credit card solicitation and say that I'm not home. People who call that are friends, or looking for me to do a booking, know that I'm Phil, not Phillip.
