Feeling A Little Amazed!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Kinard Realty

Got a call yesterday from a gentleman who simply called me by my first name and gave me his full name and his phone number and location and asked if I would call him. Because of the way the call came in as an Alabama area code and I'm in Georgia and because he called me by first name only I was rather curious? I called back and got a voice-mail which included a cell phone number I could call.

I did a reverse look up on the phone number and it was an unpublised number. I thought it was a little odd? Was it a potential customer and if so where was the Alabama thing coming into play? Why, If it was a customer did they not give a little more information like what they were looking for?

I went ahead and took the bait! I called back and left a message. Simply returning the call in the same manner I received.

I received a call back and much to my amazement the gentleman proceeded to tell me he had found my profile on Active Rain. I thought to myself at that point - - Cool a potential lead.... WRONG!!! The gentleman then proceeded to ask if in this market I had ever given any thought to ways of making additional money....

I explained: "Yes, I work a part time job"... Well then he said:" Have you ever thought about getting paid every time someone uses their cell phone?"

I'm thinking WHAT THE HECK???? This person got my profile off Active Rain - - and wants to tell me how to get paid everytime someone uses their cell phone????

Needless to say I was not interested but I was truly amazed! This was one I just had to share with my fellow Active Rain people!
