Do you feel that this is being honest?
I just got a call where my caller ID said the identity of the caller was unavailable. I'm not sure why I picked it up, but I did and the caller identified herself as either being from or calling for Lutheran World Relief.
They wanted to take a survey. She said I would not be asked for a contribution.
I felt stung that my own church body--the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) --would use a survey firm where such secular and misleading tactics would be used. I would have felt different if the caller ID had reflected the identity of the caller.
Because of their tactics being like those of most other telemarketers, I declined the conversation.
Lutheran World Relief should apologize and should vow to be more transparent in its calling efforts.
How is their ways different from the world's ways?
