The "Mustang International" guys are still going strong.
Had a call from a Michelle this morning singing her nursery rhyme (what it sounded like).
a) I'm not interested
b) I wish to never be contacted again by them
c) I wish to know where they obtained my personally identifiable info (tel nr)
Explained that b & c are as per the ECT Act. Naturally b also a per the newer CPA act.
She could not help. I asked to speak to her supervisor and got cut off - WRONG!!!
Quick research lead me to a recruitment ad at Jobspace. This led to Sharetrackin as tel: +27 12 940 0800
A quick call to Sharetrackin confirmed Mustang is a franchise of them. I was also give the Mustang tel nr as 0126431472 (which corresponds to the advert I found).
Phoned and demanded I be removed and also wished to get the identifying details of the source that supplied them my details. I'm waiting ....
Research also shows that this company has zero respect for the privacy of the consumer and is not abiding by the CPA and allowing parties to be removed from their list.
If you get a call, let the agent come visit. Be prepared and have two copies of a document ready he must sign - that they will remove you and also supply you with he identifying source of your details with 10 working days, making sure he signs it before showing him the door taking his copy with him. If he refuses to sign, press charges under the CPA and ECT Acts. Simple.
If these unethical marketeers wish to treat the consumer like trash and waste your time, treat the marketeer like trash and waste their time. I'm waiting for the next call....
