Hi, yes, it's part of a new system they are trying out called CARE CHAT and censoring personal phone numbers -you can enroll in care chat as well as the other person and you have a number assigned through care.
Com so people don't have your personal phone number until you speak with them on Care CHAT:) I prefer this Chat system.
One victim said her caller ID indicated the call originated in Antigua or Barbuda (area code 268).
A client asked me to call them, but their number showed up as an unclickable phone icon.
I lost my care pro status because I didn't respond after that second phone call was completed.
BUT even though they can't find my information and are unable to cancel my account, they are billing me a month!" buttons, and we can click through it to get what we need. Also nowadys 80% or more don't even own a landline.For a web site that used to work well, it's not helping me, for sure. We can use a cell phone to block those we don't want.It took me about two minutes to do that, validated my cell phone number, and we were able to connect. They called me right back and the phone interview went on for another 30 minutes, and we got disconnected again -- but we had already set up an in person interview.It seems there may be a 30 minute limit to the care chat connection.I am having issues with the person asking for a phone interview without them ever posting a job so I have no info about them. And also now one potential job who insists they get my direct phone number and my references direct phone number.The references and reviews are right here on this [email protected] :: You must send a text reply (such as, Thank you.) via the same conversation here in the system. I don't need anyone overseeing & monitoring who I give me cell phone number!Like making a courteous reply to the already COMPLETED conversation. I actually contacted about this nonsense & got a long response about it all being for my protection and the "benefits" of care chat. I just wanted things to go back to the way they were & let me decide who to give my phone number to & who not to!!The system does not realize that a 30 minute phone call is a complete communication.You must respond with text after any care chat phone call has been done.
