I received a strange (to me) phone message I'm not sure if I should return. Exact text (hiding real names of course ):
"Hi BaileyCatts, this is John Doe at State Bank. Can you give me a call at (local phone number). Thanks."
This call came in at 6:40p at night (so after business hours). Now strange to me is, I do not do business with State Bank and never have. This guy knew my first name (creepy). I looked up local phone number and its a State Bank branch in my general area. I am job hunting but I don't recall applying for a job at State Bank, and if he was calling about a resume/interview, wouldn't he have: 1) said "I'm calling about the position you applied for" or something to that affect, or any reason at all; and 2) called during normal business hours?
I tried to search on the guy's name too, but its so common there are too many hits to find him. Normally I would ignore a call like this since I don't do business with this Bank. But since I am job hunting, I'm wondering if I should call back because maybe its a job I applied for (maybe I applied via a corporate office site or something since I don't recall applying for anything at State Bank)?
Would you call back?
