Checking my voicemail:
“Hi John, this is Jim from *snip*.Â I’m calling about a camera that was proposed to be put on my building. Give me a call back at 814-472-xxxx ext yyyy.”
I don’t recognize the name or know anything about the camera.Â However, I have installed a few security cameras in my life and given out cards a couple years ago to people that were interested.Â Then, I look up the number — it’s inÂ Meadville.Â I have never been to Meadville — all of 3 hours away.Â Does my Yellow Book ad reach Meadville?Â It might, but it doesn’t have my first name or cell phone number on it.
I call this fellow back and told him I was returning his call.Â He was like
“I spoke with a gentleman today, Chris somebody, about putting a camera on our building.Â I was wondering how you guys would access that through our firewall.”
I told him that he might actually have the wrong company, or that someone was supposed to give me a heads up that never did — since until this call, I have never heard of their company or that I would have to access their camera through their firewall.Â He then consulted a printed out email (from that Chris character) which had my cell phone number and the name was John S—.Â So that’s interesting.
Once I informed him that while it was my number, my first name, it was not my last name (plus the fact I am 3 hours away).Â We discussed the oddity of that wrong number also being a John that has a computer firm and has worked with security cameras, but all in all, it was still the wrong number.
