|A woman who identified herself only as 'Stephanie' from Cambridge Whos Who called me on my cell and asked for me by name. The first tip is that I never give that number out, it is for emergencies only, but then she said I probably did not remember applying to them. When I asked her what I'd applied to them for, she did not answer that question but explained what Cambridge Whos Who does for people. She also knew my e-mail address which again is a mystery to me because I don't use that email address except for job searches. She also knew my last name. Again, the only Cambridge I know anything about is the university and I don't even know what city that is in.|
'Stephanie' took 30 minutes asking many personal questions, gushing over my accomplishments, but managing to get where I graduated from, my degrees information, what I want to be doing in five years, etc. Information I would not normally give anyone over the phone, and especially someone who called on the phone she called on - because again, that is NOT a number anyone I know has except my daughter who lives with me and would only recognize if I called and I were out at night or in the hospital - and she knew I was there. (it would be an emergency)
Unfortunately, I also told this 'Stephanie' my middle initial, address, city, state information. Fortunately, I don't have credit cards, so she couldn't get that information. I feel stupid, humiliated, victimized and I want nothing to do with these people. 'Stephanie' should be ashamed of herself. Cambridge uses scam tactics to victimize an already hurting society. If this is a company Donald Trump and his family backs and is proud of, they too should be sued for the aggravation they are causing people.
I will be publishing complaints with BBB of New York, Michigan as well as with the Atty. Generals for both states. In fact, I'm sure there must be a complaint department with the Federal Trade Commission. I do not use my information for such nonsense and do not appreciate others using it either.
