    Default Leibovici telemarketing - Not providing acurate Caller ID 587-331-6586

    2nd call from Leibovici camp today despite being very clear their calls were not welcome.The calls show as 587-331-6586 and do not display a proper name on caller ID. More than a little disrespectful to the people their bothering with unsolicited calls.

    Hafis Devji's team (Ward 10) took the time to get call display right.

    Ah, I've gotten 3 calls from that number in the past few days. I don't answer 587 numbers though.

    Leibovici is irrelevance bought by the highest bidding real estate developper, so why would it matter

    Why? 587 is a valid code in Alberta. I know a number of people with 587 numbers.

    Also the lack of ID on the number could be solely because it's a temporary number. Campaigns only buy lines for the duration of the campaign so the name may never get added to the ID database.

    Leibovici is like a decepticon, her campaign photos don't match real life.

    From personal experince...

    I now have a 587 number due to my new move. It came up without my ID for 4 weeks plus. It finally showed up on Monday when I made a call out, but it had the wrong name!

    LOL

    So yes, the lack of an immediate caller ID can be the system...not anything nefarious on the users part.
    Since calm logic doesn't work, I guess it is time to employ sarcasm. ...and before you call me an a-hole...remember, I am a Dick.

    I don't know a single person with a 587 number, so I don't answer the calls. If they want to leave a message then I can return their call.

    Fair enough. My solution to this was to not have call display. If you're not in my contact list, then all I see is a number. I often let those go to voice mail. Of course this proved a problem when Revenue Canada kept calling and never left a message so I didn't know it was them.

    Just to note, 587 is the new province wide area code. If you get a new cell phone, get a 587 number so you're never long distance no matter where you are in Oilberta.

    Long distance doesn't work that way.

    I answered a call from "PEI/Nova Scotia" because I thought it might be Revenue Canada. The first word was of course "congratulations" so I knew it wasn't them.

    Got a robocall from Karen last night. Does this actually work to gain support? It just annoyed me.

    Got one as well. That makes 2 robocalls, and another from a volunteer asking if I'd support Karen (no, sorry). I haven't had calls from any other mayoral candidate.

    What decade do they think this is?

    They might as well try spamming our email as well. You know, just to "get her name out there".

    Well considering the federal PC and NDP party both still use robocalls and the WR party here in Alberta as recently as the last elections.... They still do reach some of the population that's not as computer savvy as us folks on C2E...

    There are still people who either dont have email/internet, or dont check it very often... Robocalls are still an effective means to get a message out to the baby boomers and older.

    ^Agreed.

    Robocalls are also very cost-effective in terms of money and time compared to distributing leaflets to mailboxes or paid advertising. Maybe a bit old fashioned, but robocalls are a perfectly legitimate form of communication for such things as letting people know of upcoming events or for inviting participation in telephone town halls with the candidate.

    There have been some well-documented cases of robocall abuse. But that's true of any form of communication.

    Robocalls seem to work better for getting out the time and date of an event to people you're pretty sure are going to want to go (party members for an event with the leader, etc.), less well for general voter contact.

    ^Think that depends on the demographic you're trying to reach. For reaching older voters whose names and land line phone numbers are in the white pages or 411.ca, robocalls are still effective. These voters are a declining but still important portion of the electorate that is difficult to reach in other ways (such as social media).

    I got one from Ward 6 Melinda Hollis, which was a mini-questionnaire..."press 1 if you are going to support Melinda Hollis, etc"

    I get so many robot calls these days which start off with "Congratulations" both on my cell and my work phone that I've learned to hang up right away, calm down and get back to work. It doesn't affect my opinion one way or another when they're political calls.

    The "Press 1 if you are going to support ..." might make me withdraw support though. That's a pretty clueless opening.
