I certainly agree with you. I have gotten calls from D and B over
the years and have always told them that I simply do not give out
financial on the phone.
The mere fact that they SAY they are reps of D and B is certainly a
red flag, After all, why should anybody believe that an
unidentifiable person on the phone should be the person thay purport
to be ? If you have established credit with reputable wholesalers
that is quite enough. Thereafter, your FICO score will open just
about any credit door assuming that you have a good rating.
And, while we are on the subject of phone calls, I wonder how many
of you are being increasingly pestered by those rotten time
stealers, the telemarketers. I wish JBT would step into that arena
and attempt to do something about the problem. In my view one’s
business phone is a vital tool for communication with customers.
When telemarketers tie up that line of communication they are
stealing from you ! The same thing is true of fax machines. I had
been getting so many spams on mine that I merely turn it off except
to receive something that I was expecting or to send in orders to
suppliers. What a shame it is that we have no control over
potentially very useful devices. Are we going backward or what ?
