I just received a phone call from what I believe is a robot.
the company is affinity savings club. I really wish I had recorded this somehow.
I always listen to telemarketers, and I never buy. but this time I kinda was curious to make a purchase. shazam my credit card is not in my wallet.. so I ask if they accept paypal.. the voice said "YES,,,, YES." long pause. I say.. "how do you want me to pay using pay pal.. via e-mail? text?" the voice says "we accept visa, Mastercard, and american express." I say. "sooo.. no paypal then right?" the voice ".......NO" I then say "I get the feeling I am talking to a robot" there was a slight pause and the voice says "oh I sound that good hu? ha ha ha ". so I ask my favorite news source.. is there a sort of turring test I can give to a telemarketing voice using cleverly pre-recorded human voice?. maybey I could say "you sell refrigerators right?""
