I’ve been missing some calls on my work phone for a couple weeks - ignoring a call from a town in CT (I’m based in Hartford) with a number I don’t recognize. This afternoon for whatever reason I picked it up. It’s an automated call - but a human eventually says hello, knows my name, introducing himself as (don’t remember his name) from Auth0. He knew I recently got an email from his colleague.
I challenged him on the use of a spoofed number, and he defended it with some story about how the automated calling system Sales has uses “unused numbers in the area of the customer being called”… I told him to call me from a number I can verify as being from Auth0. Haven’t heard back yet…
Sorry, Auth0. I really want to believe this is a spam/phishing attempt, and NOT how Auth0 conducts business… is it?
Does anyone know? Was this a valid Auth0 sales guy?
thanks for any insight anyone can shed here.
