what a tease!!!

So I get a phone call today from sweet water music... odd I thought. I call back, and the lady says she was calling about the contest I entered! Naturally I got pretty excited, and she puts me on hold. After a couple minutes waitting she gets around to telling me I DIDN'T win but they wanted to know if I still wanted their catalogues...


How lame lol...

Re: what a tease!!!

Lame. Maybe something further will come of it, beyond a catalog, though. I can't imagine them calling up everyone who entered a contest.

Yeah she also sent me a couple emails trying to talk to me. Very odd imo.

"This is Danielle, your Sales Engineer here at Sweetwater. Previously, you entered into on of our online giveaway contests, after which I sent you out a Pro Gear Directory catalog. Did you receive it, and if so, what do you think of it? What is your history with music? I'd love to talk gear with you, so give me a call or send me an e-mail!"

"I saw your picture on LinkedIn and think you're hot" is how I translate all that

Sales engineer? When did everybody on the planet become an engineer? The guy at McDonald's must be a sandwich engineer.

Re: what a tease!!!

Be very careful with this--we had another member recently get a phone call and emails like that. Turned out to be a scam. If they're asking if you want a catalog--they want your address. If you want a catalog, just go to the website and ask for one.

No she's listed on sweetwater.com, called me from sweetwaters listed phone number, and I've already received my catalog. She asked no personal questions of any kind and told me which contest I entered. Not a scam at all id say. Extremely odd? Absolutely....

Good looking out though rob, I appreciate it.
