I remember when I worked as a phone solicitor, I called a guy and began my pitch to take a phone survey. He said, Wait a minute, How did you get my name and number? I am said, it was probably brought from a list, but I wasn't sure. He said, No you don't understand, I am in a witness protection program. How do you have my old name with my new number? I figured he was pissed about getting the call and wanted to worm out of a survey and made the whole thing up.
He got my information and the company I worked for. Sure enough a few days later. I was sitting in a room with my boss, the boss' boss, and the CEO who was explaining to the FBI special agent where they got the list from. We were all (including the CEO) fired over this incident. so I can honestly say, I was fired for doing my job.
