Dear tellows fellows, we love staying in touch with you and always keep you informed about new events on our blog. Today we want to talk about online trading because there are tons of reports about companies proposing how to make money online using their trading product or simply offering a trading academy.
Let´s see some examples…
Waleed:“I got a call from this number the caller was aggressive and better described as rude. She tried to insist on taking about trading and that I appeared in her website. When I told her not interested she made a comment “what you don’t like my voice”and this is when I just told her this is the end of the call and hung up”
Sten: “Aggressive, too insisting and offensive”
J21: “Person wanting to talk to me about online trading. Not interested”
NvM: “They’ve been calling every day for weeks. As described, online trading telemarketer”
tabasschir: “Unsolicited call, introduced as BFI. I queried who they were and he said Basic Financial Introductions. He did ask “how are you today?” so was polite. I just referred him to the GDPR regulations on using information without consent, then hung up.”
Jasmin456: “Female voice with Asian accent called my mobile and said they are offering financial advice. She did say thank you and bye before hanging up but not nice to receive a cold call on mobile number anyway.”
