    Got a phone call from a someone who barely spoke english. He said he was from TTR and asked if I was working. He then said something about Cargo Transporters and asked if I was still using the email he had. He then said I "better respond to the email in a day or two". I wasnt sure how to respond to that so there was a brief silence before he muttered something, said goodbye and hung up.

    Does TTR call members?

    I think @Chinatown has been known to call TTR members after midnight asking if they are in need of a good company referral ;-)

    Figured either a scam or worst recruiter in the history of bad recruiters. Thought Id mention it on here though. He did have my phone and email.

    Edit: I did get an email from CT right around that time.

    I reported this post to the Admins. They'll take a look at it.
    As far as I know TTR doesn't ever call anyone on the phone.
    Also, @Chinatown , while providing a valuable service to the membership has no official ties with TTR, doesn't represent them, doesn't participate in managerial decisions, and has no standing other than that of a member.

    I got a phone call the other day. The guy said he was from TTR and said that I was looking for a job. I told him no I wasn't. He started his spiel as I was hanging up. He was a headhunter from CRST.

    I didn't get an email though.

    I blocked the number.

    Have any of you posted or gave your numbers out in a private message? What about these "surveys" I see threads pop up for every now and then? Wonder if that's how they got it?

    Did I give TTR my phone number?
    Don't remember.

    But it is the same when someone calls you claiming to be from the IRS or SS.
    They do not call you on the phone.
