Marketing Scam - not very clever!
Today I'm working from home while my kids destroy the house as a half-term hobby. We're off out to do lots of interesting stuff later (food shopping he he) but in the meantime I thought I'd get some work done....until I received a phone call from a chap with a strong northern accent (no offence to northerners), talking very quickly, and not letting me get a word in edgeways. He claimed to be from Google and could get me onto Page 1 of a google search for a one-off fee.
I googled the number he was ringing from - 01619242190 if you're interested - and up popped loads of details and forums about "Levora Marketing Scam". Hence I haven't got any work done since as it makes for an interesting read, and very scary too.
I can understand why people sign up to these things as it sounds very plausible, but the guy was so irritating on the phone I started to get angry with him. He talked to me as if I was completely stupid and know nothing about the web. I don't know much admittedly, but enough to make me wary. In the end I put the phone down on him mid-sentence (him not me!)
So what shall I write my time off to today? The joy of working for myself is that I manage my own time - but I'm only paid based on my own productivity. Now I'd better try and get some work done, and I've saved the number into my phone so next time I can be prepared.
