    So... A few thousand people are extremely pissed off at the moment.

    My business partner setup an account with these guys to handle some voicemail marketing (B2B). Turns out they just called 10k+ east coast businesses (construction category) and some of the calls went directly to personal cell phones.

    We are able to see who picksup/leaves voicemails and a few people already left REALLY messed up messages. :yield:

    1. "I'll kill you bastards if you call me again at 2am"
    2. You damn scumbag **********
    3. Remove my number and shove it up your ass
    4. How dare you fvcking call me at 2 in the morning you **********
    5. get a life then kill yourself

    and they are just rolling in...

    We had thought they were going to start at 6-8AM or 6-8PM EST, so this is an interesting mix up :confused:

    We are taking this as a valuable lesson (strictly on communication).... Can't wait for all the hate mail to come in now! :eek:

    We are taking it as a lesson learned but considering the amount of businesses out there, this doesn't "matter" per say.

    Decided to share this with you guys cause there is a specific time to do this stuff, not randomly the way these guys decided to do it.

    I'm glad that you can laugh about it though.

    Lol. But more importantly, how did you send so many voicemails?
