(985) 277-5034 is a Messaging System Calling
Barrister is a legit-ish company that I've done actual work for. However, they pay extremely low flat rates and are only good if you're really desperate to make ends meet. Once you get on their list though, they will never, ever, ever stop calling you. I haven't done a job for them in five years, but I still get calls from them at least once a week and sometimes several times a day. I have asked them several times to take me off their list. They always politely agree, but then someone else there calls me the next day. The only way I've been able to deal with them is to auto-forward them to voicemail. That works for a while, but then they'll start calling from a different number. They really ride the line between scammer and employer.
985-277-5034 called and sort of left a message. It was some sort of sound effect and then nothing. However reading other complaints I know this is Barrister Consulting. They had just sent me an email for a position that I did not want (TWICE)! I don't know this company and would not want to work for them.
They call my phone many times every day. They have been for many months. Must really be hard up for help. I've asked them to remove me from their lists and then they call back multiple times right away. How would anyone ever want to work for a company with no respect or consideration for another? SMH
its legit as Michael has stated...I made the mistake of working for them once when I first started doing tech work for corporations online....they are a tech company but their pay rates are so low that it's not worth getting out of bed for...don't know how they find qualified technicians at the rates they pay...look @ their reviews @ glassdoor or indeed and see if ANY of them that don't look bogus give a positive response..if you are a field tech..STAY AWAY!!!
Barrister is legitimate, just persistent. If you've signed up for any remote work or support sites such as WorkMarket or Upwork (formerly oDesk/Freelancer.com), you or the person who had your number gave permission to be contacted by clients. If you use a free VOIO service like Google Voice, a lot of internet-based techs use VOIP for their support calls. It's fine to answer. Just politely ask them to take you off their list if you're the new number owner. Yes, they're India-based. They do global support, so you can get any kind of accent when they call.
