he's actually a Nigerian running a scam to get your money.
Wow, nothing like knowing your prospect list, huh? Fox and The Stranger, indeed...
take the money, give into hate.
Uhh...I would...um...like your...uhh...business cause I'm...um...like professional.
A new revenue-building opportunity that Fox has come with, you say? Sounds great! If only my new California Pines home had internet access, I could be reaping these most "generous of revenue shares out on the web".
This actually sounds kinda scary... it's one thing to generate revenue from ad sales, but this almost sounds like there's incentives here to source video from certain sources. Ugh.
Run, Anthony, run! Change your phone number. Now.
Oh what on EARTH is this new bullshit. You HAVE to call him back and find out more.
wow - a video player on the web? mind blowing.
It's cause Dan and Bill O'reilly are butt buddies...
Man, this takes me back to the first animations of videos on the web.
Wasn't that like in the 80s?
Make sure you give them your SSN and birthdate ... after all, it's not like Fox would try to ... lie to us ...
According to Washington State telemarketing laws, Fox News now owes you $500.
... or does that law just cover automated messages left on your voicemail? dammit, i think it does. nevermind.
They're trying to kill me. Answer it.
the Stranger probably got their attention when Dan endorsed the Iraq invasion and later volunteered for Romney.
@6: kudos. uh's and um's really do a lot to make one sound unprofessional, more so than most things.
yeah, that message was fishy all around. don't call them back and block their number. i don't know that i would mess around w/ reporting them to wa state, even if you did get money out of it. or shit, i don't know. do it and see what happens. this behavior needs to be in the spotlight.
It's a trap!
Fox must be getting desperate, because I got the same message.
@13 - yeah, GO FOR IT! SUE THEM!
I get the feeling he had a list of papers with websites to call, and had just loaded Slog for the first time while rattling off his well-worn spiel.
Washington telemarketing laws hardly prohibit a business from proposing a business deal to another business. Even this nanny state wouldn't go that far...
poor fresh-out-of-college nervous coldcaller.
