Got a “marketing” call today at work, a bit different from the usual marketing guff, it was a friendly english girl, she started by telling me that her company would be sending me out an IT Sales Catalouge in post and because “my company” had helped them with a previous customer service survey I would be getting free acaradia vouchers which can be used in any shop. She asked a couple of very vague IT questions “what type of printers are you using?” “what type of toner?” but she didn’t seem at all interested in the answers, then came the strange part.
She asks for my home address to send the vouchers to (which I gave without thinking), then started making idle chit chat, and asked if I had any holidays planned for the next couple of weeks, when I replied I hadnt, she threw in that the vouchers would be sent by registered post so she needed to know if there would be someone in the house during the day to sign for them. I really got the impression she was fishing around for as much information as possible about when the house would be empty, she had very limited knowledge about the company I worked for, and the IT questions she asked were fairly generic and she didn’t seem interested in the answers ( these fucks usually bombard you with questions if you speak to them).
Is it some sort of it elaborate scan or am I just being paranoid?
