I wonder what will be done about the rats known as "mystery shoppers" - these are unemployed rat bastards that sign up to call Co. sales depts in certain all phone pro service industries and whose goal is to actually keep people on phone wasting the co's resources, while being paid for it.
And we are talking legitimate companies, providing legitimate, and oftentimes critically needed services (legal and financial help with debt and tax problems) thereby not just randomly attacking the 9 to 5 worker on phone, but actively depriving people who DO need help with serious problems ("payroll clerk just said 75% of my next check is going to IRS!!!!") and all because some rat someplace would rather burn his neighbor's crops than work on growing more of his own.
I say I wonder, because I don't see company owners too worried about it, phone labor is paid cheap, and people who really need help can just keep dialing until they get through apparently.
There are some serious resources being applied and wasted in all this, and apparently even with ALL the laws already in place, there is nothing illegal about someone, at the behest of and with the assistance of a third party often a competing company, posing as a legitimate consumer, providing 100% false information in a matter related to Federal taxes and/or major debt with Fed insured Banks, and this to an FTC regulated company in an industry requires extensive licensing, all with the malicious intention of tying up and wasting target company's resources, so as to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.
No different than dumping a barrel full of live RATS on a farmer's fields in the middle of the night.
