I used a pay service to get background on the number. This is interesting:

Paul Murphy

Clever, eh?

Now, if you call 202-367-9284, you don't get Lucy Murphy -- unless she's the person who is recorded saying "For quality purposes, the call may be recorded..."

The real question is, how to document this subterfuge in a way that will convince, say, your local senator, that Credit One needs to be kicked in the balls. With creditors who don't mask their identity, you can provide your phone records as proof that they've called you 12 times a day for 6 months. In a case like this, it's way more complicated.

My wife and I are journalists - she in particular has investigative experience and substantial knowledge of the banking industry. So we're on it. Cross your fingers...

This is one of many numbers that Credit One Bank uses. Mainly to get somebody to answer and then harrass you about a debt.

How do I stop them from calling?

  1. Ask the unwanted caller to stop calling and put you on their do not call list (they are legally required to comply).
  2. If your number is registered with the National Do Not Call Registry you can file a complaint with the FTC.
  3. Block them with a call blocker or something like Nomorobo.
