telemarketer

so, apparently not returning modems to sasktel four or five months late is not a good thing. It will in fact get you a 177 dollar fine and put on a low class collections list. So, i had called sasktel earlier this month to discuss said 177 dollar fine. After chatting with the dude from sasktel he said if i brought the modem back in the next few days he would make sure the fine would be squared away. So that was sweet. I returned and in fact the charge was dropped from my account. However sasktel neglected to pass this information on to their little collecting friends. i recieved a phone call from this lady yesterday or so and it went like this:

lady: hi i'm calling for brian campbell
Brian:that's me.
Lady: hi brian i work for...(some collections agency in a terribly dead end job) and you apparently have a phone that belongs to sasktel and you should bring it back.
Brian: No I don't.
Lady: Yes, yes you do.
Brian: No, i'm sorry ma'am but I got my phone from walmart not sasktel
Lady: pause........It says here you have one, so you probably do.
Brian: no pause......It could say i have a million dollars too. but i promise you i don't have either.
Lady: longer pause. You don't have a phone from sasktel?
Brian: I've never had a phone from sasktel.
Lady: But it says here....
Brian: I did however have a modem over due for 4 months, but i returned that awhile ago.
Lady: loud sigh. oh. do you have a recipt them proving you returned it.
Brian: Yes
Lady: Thank you for your time.......sir.
Brian: laughing, nooo problem

Hey, funny story once i heard of this guy who had an 'outstanding' bill with a sex-line and received a call from an 'high class' collection agency, the poor chap had his $400 phone sex bill 'taken care of'. I wonder if it was the same lady? NO couldnt be!?
