I want to ask each of you to consider doing the following when you are talking on the phone to any US customer service representative who is based in a foreign country (like India). I have done this twice and it works! 
Any time you call an 800 number (for a credit card, banking, charter communications, health insurance, insurance, you name it) and you are transferred to a representative in a foreign country (like India), please consider doing the following:
After you connect and you realise that the customer service representative is not from the USA (you can always ask if you are not sure about the accent), please very politely (very politely – this is not about trashing other cultures) say, “I’d like to speak to a customer service representative in the United States of America .” 
The rep might suggest talking to his/her manager, but, again, politely say, “Thank you, but I’d like to speak to a customer service representative in the USA .” 
YOU WILL BE IMMEDIATELY CONNECTED to a rep in the USA. It only takes less than one minute to have your call re-directed to the USA. 
Tonight when I got redirected to a USA rep, I asked again to make sure – and yes, she was from Fort Lauderdale.
Imagine if every US citizen who has to make such a call and then requests a US rep, imagine how that would ultimately impact the number of US jobs that would need to be created ASAP. Imagine what would happen if every US citizen insisted on talking to only US phone reps from this day on. 
If I tell 10 people to consider this and you tell 10 people to consider doing this – see what I mean…it becomes an exercise in viral marketing 101.
Remember – the goal here is to restore jobs back here at home – not to be abrupt or rude to a foreign phone rep. If you agree, please tell 10 people you know and tell them to tell 10 people they know…etc…etc….

  2. Dear Fellowship…and Joseph,
    What a great idea!!! Will make my interactions so much easier and hopefully have the intended effect for American customer service phone rep. jobs…It can be exhausting and stressful to deal with an urgent important problem with a rep. who is tricky to understand AND more often misconstrues what I say due to accent/language use complications on both ends.
    So glad to hear it IS possible to get to a US based rep. on request…not to mention JOBS. Double benefit.
    Good work!

  3. This idea has apparently originated with someone with a wonderful imagination but it is not based on fact. While some companies may follow the practice of forwarding a call back to the U.S., there is no law requiring it.

     
    • Hey, Ben,
      You should try actually reading the Snopes article to which you link us. If you had, you’d realize what a complete jackass you are because the article ends with this sentence that completely validates my post:
      “Although the practice is not yet legislatively mandated [referring to a suggestion by Sen. Chuck Schumer in 2010 but which he’s still not yet introduced as a bill in Congress], some U.S. companies have established policies and procedures of their own that instruct foreign call center operators to transfer calls back to the U.S;-based reps upon customer request.”
