This was an email I recieved that I thought was interesting. Whay do you think?
Any time you call an 800 number
(for a credit card, banking, charter communications, health and other
insurance, computer help desk, etc)
and you find that you're talking to a foreign customer service
(perhaps in India, Philippines, etc),
please consider doing the following:
After you connect and you realize that the customer service
representative is not from the USA
(you can always ask if you are not sure about the accent),
please, very politely
(this is not about trashing other cultures)
say, "I'd like to speak to a customer service representative in the
United States of America ."
The rep might suggest talking to his/her manager,
but, again, politely say, "Thank you, but I'd like to speak to a
customer service representative in the USA ."
YOU WILL BE IMMEDIATELY CONNECTED TO A REP IN THE USA .
That's the rule and the LAW.
It takes less than one minute to have your call re-directed to the USA
Tonight when I got redirected to a USA rep, I asked again to make sure
- and yes, she was from Fort Lauderdale .
Imagine what would happen if every US citizen insisted on talking to
only US phone reps from this day on.
Imagine how that would ultimately impact the number of US jobs that
would need to be created ASAP.
If I tell 10 people to consider this and you tell 10 people to consider
doing this - see what I mean...it becomes an exercise in viral
Remember - the goal here is to restore jobs back here at home - not to
be abrupt or rude to a foreign phone rep. You may even get correct
answers, good advice, and solutions to your problem - in real English.
If you agree, please tell 10 people you know, and ask them to tell 10
people they know....etc...etc
