These folks call our office quite literally 5-10 times a day. Their robo-dialer is at best misleading, making it sound like they are a partner with Google, when, fact, they are a third party company calling you to solicit their services. Not only do they spoof a Lafayette Louisiana number when they are in CA, but they are just generally sketchy.

Sick of the repeated calls, today I finally pressed one to speak to an agent. A woman picked up and I asked her if she could identify the company she was calling from. She quite literally said, "Hell no," and hung up. Awesome.

Not 10 minutes later, another call from the same robo-dialer. I pressed one again and was transferred to a man who identified himself as Ryan. Ryan asked me, "Do you actually own this business or are you just a receptionist?" Yay! Sexism. Killing it with the first impressions, Ryan. Anyway, after a little back and forth, Ryan said he was calling from eGumball, Inc. I told him his business calls us constantly, all day, every day and it's incredibly frustrating. I told him I'm at the point of complaining to Google, to which Ryan said, "Good luck with that. You'll never get through to anybody at Google." What an awesome thing to say about the service of your "partner"! Ryan continued by telling me that even if I could get through to Google, there's nothing they could do. I confirmed Ryan's name and asked him for an identification number or department- he said he didn't have one. I said, "So, how would someone find you? Are you the only Ryan in the whole company?" He paused and said, "Actually, no Ryans work here" and hung up on me.

Now armed with the name of this awful company, I did some Google research and it looks like I'm far from the only upset person (Google EGumball + scam to see what I mean). Anyway, I got their corporate phone number, called, and asked to speak to someone in authority. The guy who answered the phone, Jose, asked why I was calling. I explained. He said he could take down my complaint. He did and was apologetic, but he said, "You know, that's just like, that's their sales tactic." Lovely.

If I get a single call from this company again, I will be reporting them to the FTC and state Attorney General. What absolutely horrific business practices. I don't know about you, but I have a general policy that I don't do business with folks who lie and misrepresent themselves straight out the gate.
