Intransa Phone Line is Back?

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jan 31, 2013

Every so often, we call Intransa to try to speak to a human being. In the past few months, we almost always were transferred to an outsourced answering service that pretended all the Intransa sales people were 'busy with other customers' despite numerous partner confirmations that the sales force had been furloughed / laid off (see Intransa in trouble).

Now, Intransa's toll free line is disconnected and their local phone line goes to a generic/default voice mail. Try for yourself:

  • **** ****: *** *** **** [******: **** ****** *** *** been ******* **** ********'* *******; ******** *******.***.**** ***** ******* ** ** *** ******** ***** ** ** Intransa ********]
  • ************* *** *** ****

[****** ****** *** ***: ********'* **** **** ***** **** ** back **. ** ***** **** ** ******** *** ***** *** said '**** *** ******** *********' *** ******** ** ****** *** other *********. *** *** ******** ** ** ** ******** ** who ** **** *******.]

[****** ****** *** ***: ***** ** ******** **** ****** ** Intransa.]
