Phone Spam

Olivia mentioned she'd been getting phone spam!

On one occasion the phone rang and Olivia picked it up to hear a recorded voice say, "I'm sorry, this message was intended for an answering machine." Another time Olivia answered the phone to have a recorded message announce that her number had been selected and she'd already won a prize, if she called another phone number.

What a terrible, low-tech waste of time for spammer and spammee...

Yes, that is going around a lot these days. We have had quite a few of such phones in our office and it's just annoying and amusing at times. It's am using when the receptionist greets with her usual welcome tone to hear a recorded voice :).
