kind of sketchy.
I called the agency just to ask if they were still actively looking for clients. The first time, I got the agency's voicemail. It sounded like a person (possibly an employee) reading from a script that gave the agency's name and phone number and addition info.
I decided to wait and call back again later hoping to speak to an actual person. When I called back, it immediately switched to an automated voice that said the voicemailbox of the dialed number has been disabled.
