I got the impression she wasn't from the US.

To be fair, I would have been completely flustered and unable to think after everything that just happened.

That said, I don't really feel bad because it is a scam, and she has to know it's a scam.

I didn't mean it in that sense, just that an immigrant who might not have English as their first language, might not have the chit-chat BS Americans do on the job, could have been even more flustered by this off-script banter.

I worked for a startup that toed the line between being a scam and just being a shitty company with an awful product no one in their right minds would ever want or need. The business was totally driven on sales people spewing the right mumbo jumbo and covering up this crap app they were selling with enough buzz words that other companies ate it.

Seems similar to this company, except they're targeting authors and not other shitty companies, which definitely puts them in a worse category of capitalism. Although their sales team also seems incompetent enough that maybe they're not doing too much damage.

For a loose definition of "named".

This was so awesome. Reminded me of classic KATG. Andrea was really killing it asking all those questions. And I really appreciated making him repeat numbers to confirm the guy could indeed hear everything. So ridiculous. Props on wasting their time trying to scam people and turning it into a solid half hour of laughs for us. <3
