I'm calling you because

Hi,

Although there are already some threads on this phrase, I need it for a specific context.

I need to call people I don't know and ask them for some information.

I was wondering if it sounds native to say right after I introduce myself:

Je me permets de vous appeler parce que je cherche une information...

Does this sound nice and polite?

Thanks.

    Hi

    Not 100% sure about the grammar but I think that you should say
    Je me suis permis de vous joindre/vous contacter/vous appeler as the conversation has already started with your
    introduction.

    Sounds good to me.

    However, as a native I'd say something more like "Je me permets de vous appeler au sujet de ...".
