I had a call late last week about shares I have in an oil stock. Not sure where they got my number, possibly the share registry. I had already received info in the mail about this a month ago.
Basically the telephone call started out "I am from...This call may be recorded blah blah blah". "You may purchase $X or $XX or $XXX and the deadline date is .....".
Finally "Any answer to my following question will not be used. Do you plan to buy any?"
My answer was NO.
Has anyone been telephoned regarding a Share Purchase Plan before? For what reason would a company telephone to ask this question?
Is it simply to remind people to lodge before the date and gauge what interest there is?
