Bomb Scare In Colorado Caused By Telemarketer


Dealing with the public is always a challenge. To add to the challenge, a telemarketer can face some of the most irate public there is. Often the marketer is interrupting people at bad times, and they don’t want to hear it so they hang up on you.  This comes with the job. Which means, you shouldn’t threaten to bomb their homes when it happens.

We’ve all done it, haven’t we? They call at the worst possible time and our response is often to just hang up.  Who has time to talk this person through the emotional rollercoaster of you saying “no” to every one of their scripted statements?

But, what if your hang up is the straw that breaks the telemarketer’s back? You may just find yourself in the middle of a bomb scare.  This happened in Mead, CO last week.

A man answered a call, was offered some money he supposedly “won,” declined the offer and hung up. A fairly standard telemarketing exchange. That is until the telemarketer got upset, called the man back and then told him he had planted a bomb in his house. The man called the police, who then evacuated his neighbors and searched his home for a bomb. None was found. The man thought the call had come from overseas, based on the caller’s “very thick accent,” but police are still investigating to determine the origin of the call.
