I got a letter yesterday.
It was from the SEAI mob. To paraphrase – as they had tried to get in touch with me and I hadn’t responded, that I was to be removed immediately from the scheme unless I replied by return.
Their “getting in touch” obviously consisted of one phonecall which I missed. No messages. No repeat phonecalls. This apparently is sufficient to kick me into touch.
As I mentioned on Monday, I had indeed phoned them back purely because I call back missed numbers anyway. There was no mention of an impending letter.
I got another letter this morning. It was a long one confirming my qualification for the project and detailing the procedures I can expect, though no immediate timescales.
It’s a neat trick. Make a brief phonecall. If it’s not answered, don’t leave a message. Another one off the list.
I’m going to have to keep a sharp ear out for the phone….
