Guess one shouldn't shoot the messenger, but coincidentally I too was
awoken by telephone tho by a 'survey taker' wanting to know amongst
other things the approximate value of my house.. and my annual salary!
Later this afternoon I got another, this time an Asian lady who sounded
as if she was calling long distance who also wanted to know my salary and
opinions regarding various investment options. She did sound disappointed
when she learned that I would not consider investing in off-shore real estate.
Finally another one rang this evening, and wanted one to do a 15-20 minute
IT survey regarding recent consumer purchases, but backed off when they
were told after some speedy thinking that I was involved in a marketing role.
I guess one shouldn't shoot the messenger .. but the people who determine
the questions they ask could do with some serious clue-stick prodding imho.
Cheers all ..
