If your phone is out of service or you need a line installed, the wait can be interminable. Not to mention the difficulty of calling the telephone company without a phone. What if there was an emergency?
Well, what if? You would certainly need a phone right away. And that’s why faking an impending medical crisis is your fast track to social-engineering your phone fix success.
Writes our new friend Phil,
- “If you are told by the phone company the first available appointment is two or three days away tell the person giving you the appointment it is a medical emergency and you need service immediately. Medical emergencies can be anything that might require a call to a Dr. at any time, i.e. impending birth – person in house on an IV – respirator – medication etc. – you get the idea. Phone companies fear a possible lawsuit if this is the truth and something actually does happen to the customer because the phone was not fixed after they were advised this was a medical emergency. Employees are usually advised to give a same day appointment on these without question. This will almost always get you a same day appointment. Of course this will not work for things like static or a DSL line.”
Hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
