Someone named "Mike" wanted to have a rep come by and go over creative merchant purchasing ideas. I let him know that I am not interested and that it would be a waste of my time since everything is perfectly setup here. Never agreed to anything except that I am not interested to meet anyone. We'll see if someone comes by at Tuesday at 11am like he was trying to push.

July 29th, 2010 Bruce

This girl wanted my company address info and said she was from Trans Tech and represented Mastercard Visa overcharges on merchant accounting.

April 22nd, 2010 Pizza Pipeline MT

Have recieved multiple calls from this number. They ask for owner. As soon as we say he doesn't live here they hang up or as soon as we start to say put us on 'DO NOT CALL' list they hang up before we can finish saying that. No name came up, was called from 972 428 5200 and called back and was able to speak to a real person! They said we'll be put on do not call list. Guess saying the state attorney general's office will be notified as well as better business works for them and actually gets somewhere for harassing calls.

March 24th, 2010 Irritated OR

I am on the DNC list as well. I finally answered because I wanted to tell them to stop calling. He said he was looking for the "owner" - I asked who was asking and what they wanted and he said he couldn't tell me if I wasn't the owner and started with an attitude. I got irritated and asked if this was a sales call because we are NOT supposed to get those and he said no it wasn't - he said he was from TransTech and wasn't supposed to talk to me so I said then we are done and hung up. What a pain in the rear! I will be making a formal complaint this afternoon.

January 4th, 2010 MT TX

this guys wanted my company address info and said he was from Trans Tech and represented Mastercard Visa overcharges on merchant accounting. I got his name: Arthur McDowell and his phone number: 1-800-701-2831. I told him i would be calling my merchant account service provider (which i did and they have no idea who these people are). This First Am PMT calls EVERY DAY...ALL DAY. I filed a complaint with the ftc.gov registry. I suggest everyone do this.

July 17th, 2009 Cornelius AZ

Got a call from this number when I picked up the person said is this Cornelius Lamb I said yes then she hung up. I called back immediately to see why she called and did not get an answer goes straight to there voice mail. Get this after that weird incident still get calls every day from same number.

May 4th, 2009 Larry

Calls every day ... won't give up. We have a device that lets us send selected numbers directly to voicemail ... and they never leave a message. So let them waste their time.

April 23rd, 2009 Francesca GA

Said they were "TransTech Merchant" looking for the company "DCP." They call at least twice a day; I have not answered it again.

March 17th, 2009 naomi WA

they are calling my cell and it wont let me call this number back.

February 26th, 2009 Gavan MA

I have the ability after 30 years in telecom to dial back with auto dial.
I built half of this nasty equipment myself.

It is based on disconnect and auto dial. Often two lines are needed to fuck them up.

The Sob calls And my machine calls back and continue to do so indefinatly

It looks for loop line disconnect and other Co variables based on battery and loop from the local Central office based on a land line copper.

I often take mesuraments with loop distances with a simpson meter and compare the results looking for half taps.

Now they want fios in your house? Harder to tap right now. Not really- but more expensive to do so.

Now we get to bug the whole town with fios.
\









The auto dialer can be configured to auto conference.

This machine works with two lines.

A drop in 48 volts stars the dial back to the telemarketer. Automatically.

February 20th, 2009 Fetrow VA

Woman called to TELL ME someone was going to stop by my (home based) business at 2:30 tomorrow. I had to ask at least 8 times to get the name of the company, and why they wanted to come by. She finally said to help me with my cash flow!

She kept LOUDLY coughing in my ear, and snorting, blowing her nose, and making all kinds of rude noises.

I was tempted to let the asshole salesperson come by so I could cough all over him or her.

What a way to make an AWFUL impression.

February 18th, 2009 Popper

Keeps calling my business cell phone several times daily....VERY annoying.
Have filed a complaint with the Do Not Call guys - don't know if it'll get me anywhere...

February 16th, 2009 Highly Annoyed NC

Something needs to be done about this. I have filed complaints and nothing. This number continuously calls my home on a daily basis. I don't understand how this type of practice can even be legal. I don't want what they're selling and a lot of the time they don't even speak if you do answer. I ignore the calls most of the time but it's growing tiresome seeing as how they call up to TEN times a day. The weekends aren't even excluded. These people have NO shame.

January 20th, 2009 BR AL

Hangs up without any communication at all.

December 23rd, 2008 worried CA

Got a call from First Am Pmt 972-428-5266, demanding to talk to the owner (me). Then she kept wanting to go over the business address. I kept asking her who she was and what business she was calling from. She said a person representing Visa and MasterCard is going to be here tomorrow afternoon to go through overcharges from Visa and MasterCard. I got very suspicious considering tomorrow afternoon is Christmas Eve (I don't think a normal business would be setting appointments for Christmas Eve). Am thinking maybe she wants to see if no one will be here so she can rob our place. I told her it sounds like a scam and hung up on her. I'm thinking to call the police.

December 1st, 2008 C Lynne

This may not be practical for most of you, but we have a bill collector call my home all the time, and they are looking for someone else. But this number calls us too. We can not block long distant telemarketer calls, and I am on the Do Not Call List.So my solution was to make a recording on my telephone answering machine. And it says my number is disconnected. It sounds like the real thing, and I will run it for about 2 weeks, and all my family know about it, so after about 5 or 6 tries, they stop calling. The bill collector has not called back in over a week. If you want one of these recordings go to the following link, put your answering machine next to your speakers for your computer and record one for yourself. It's free.

November 22nd, 2008 Carrie from FL FL

I must have 3-4 calls a week from this number - Caller ID shows Carrollton, TX. Calls are always during workdays between 8-5; suspect telemarketer - never leaves a message.

November 20th, 2008 Roeb.

Just enter a complaint with the Do NOt Call Registry...I just filed one on theis phone number today..they all my cell several times a day, for the past 2 months...IT's driving me crazy..i just don't answer the phone when I see it's a 972 exchange. hopefully the do not call registry will do something about it..If everyone filed a complaint maybe they would come down on this company.so please file a complaint on line..just go to the Do not call web...

November 10th, 2008 Carla Mattox AL

This company keeps calling and asking for the owner, and hangs up.

November 5th, 2008 Ed Sheehy CA

This company has called my home number - which is on the "blocked" list - 6 times in 2 days (mostly at meal times). I answered the call today to complain to the caller and I was laughed at.

October 29th, 2008 Laura FL

file a complaint with the ftc. next time they call, let them know you have filed a complaint.

It worked for me

October 29th, 2008 Laura FL

Companies like this need to be reported to the ftc. ftc(.)gov
This same company has contacted me at least 5 times between yesterday and today, so I went to the ftc website, and filed a claim.

They will be out of business soon.
Next time they call you let them know you have filed a complaint with the ftc! I guarantee they will stop calling you

Good luck

Called several times today. Barely legible. Asked for owner of business, then hangs up.

October 21st, 2008 D. Hurlburt

They have the name of my company, asked to speak to owner. I use my cell phone for business, so it made me suspicious. Said a representative would be in my area tomorrow and wanted to take a look at my credit card/check processing equipment to see if everything is okay with it. I told them if anyone showed up, not only would I not allow them near my credit card machine, I'd call authorities. (I don't have a credit card processing machine.)

October 20th, 2008 VA guy VA

called twice today 10.20.08, left no message, i called back twice and got disconnected.

October 16th, 2008 lillian CA

They call repeatedly. Several times a day. I always screen them and they never leave a message. Just keeps on calling.

Wanted to talk to owner/co-owner regarding interest rate on Visa Card. Just Hung up.

September 29th, 2008 jimw NJ

Called the 800 number listed below by 'shan' -thanks- (800-701-2831), pressed 0 a couple of times and reported that I was getting annoying calls from this company. Got connected to a "David" who took my number and said he would have it blocked. we'll see if that works or gets worse... more later...

September 29th, 2008 Mike VA

Called and insisted on speaking with the owner/operator. Said someone would be in the area next week making sure I was not paying too much for Visa/Mastercard transactions. I asked them to removed me from their call list. They gave me 888-415-0004 as their home office number. I asked for the marketing department and got Leo (ext 6442)and left him a detailed message.

September 29th, 2008 David Williams FL

They are a telemarketing company specializing in credit card acceptance.

September 26th, 2008 jvg TX

I got this call a lot in the last 2 days. So when I answered she said her name was Nicole.
I was very nice to her and got her to say that they provide merchant services for companies.
So I said, "Oh OK, if you want to talk to the owner then please call his direct number."
Then I gave her the 888 number for the FCC and directed her to talk to Robert McDowell (commissioner)
That was very satisfying!!!!

This is First American Payment Systems..13612 Midway Rd..Dallas,TX 75244
972-726-0783..Jonathan A Hughes is VP Sales...call him and let him know how discusted you are w/these calls.

September 24th, 2008 Shirley MA

These calls are from First American Payments and TransTech (affiliated). Call them at 800-701-2831, press 3 and when an agent answers, hang up. (This will make you feel much better.) Finally, when you tire of the fun, ask for a supervisor. They will tell you one will call in 24 hrs. One called me in about an hour. He was very anxious to get my numbers and promised me they would take us off the list within 72 hrs. I told him I would expedite getting my numbers off because now every time I get a call from them I call back and waste some of their time. I'm in a one-person office and when I put a customer on hold and pick up another line only to find a computer hang up tone, I'm irate. I look forward to a more peaceful existence without 3-6 calls a day from these idiots.

This calls appears to come from a "TransTech", which appears to be part of some credit card company. They lady that called me asked to speak to the owner, I then I told her I wanted to speak the her manager. When the manager came on the phone I asked why do I keep getting calls from this number. He explained that it's an automatic dialer, and he would be happy to add my number to the DO NOT CALL LIST.

If you keep getting calls from this number, ask to speak to the Manager and request to be taken off. Also, write down the managers name.

I received 2calls today and one last week. They always ask to speak to the business owner. Today when I recevied the first call from a woman, I asked them to take my number off their call list and was told it was being done right away and I got another call about an hour later from the same number but from a guy. So I did a phone number search on the 2 numbers that I got calls from 972-428-5200 and 972-428-5266, this company is located in Carrollton, TX and apparently scams people to sell credit card equipment to businesses and scams the businesses too. If I get one more call I'm going to report them to the BBB and the Illinois Attorney General's office.

September 11th, 2008 Bob again

RE: 972-428-5266 TX If you placed an order with Vistaprints.com recently they sold your contact information to these jerks who are now trying to sell you VISA/MC card services. Call Vistaprints at 1-800-961-2075 and let them know how much aggravation they caused you in exchange for the nickel they got for your information and let them know they have lost a customer as a result.

September 11th, 2008 Bob TX

re: 972-428-5266 TX If you bought something from VistaPrint recently, they sold your contact information to these jerks. Call them and tell them you object: www.vistaprint.com

Selling Merchant services for Visa/Mastercard, salesman was extremely rude.

August 28th, 2008 Aurora Med CO

Guy asked for "the Owner or Co-Owner" and I told him they are unavailable but could I take a message. He said, "That's alright, I will try back later". I asked if there was a number he could be reached at and he told me "no". I told him that was funny, because his number came up on caller ID and so if I could please have an extension to which he stated he didn't have one. I asked for his name...he gave me "Arthur something something". I said, "Great! can I have the name of your company" and he said he was with Visa and Mastercard. I hung up.

Now mind you, I noticed this number as they call approximately 2 to 3 times per day.

They lack in having ANY customer service skills and half the time the reps have a thick accent which you can't barely understand a damn thing they are saying.

August 27th, 2008 Dan CA

Called back a couple of times and call was quickly hung-up. I am on DNC list.

August 22nd, 2008 Anonymous IL

Can someone contact the FBI and investigate this possible SCAM. If it's not a SCAM then I don't know what it is.

August 21st, 2008 Tom NC

Hung up after asking of owner was in

August 14th, 2008 THS CO

They've called twice today within an hour apart and hung up after I answered. They've called serveral times in the past, but this is the first time in a couple months. I've been on the no call list ever since it existed.

July 30th, 2008 bob SC

asked for "the owner", claimed to be from Visa/MC
something about "overcharges", would not talk to anyone but "the owner".
I made the mistake of asking them "are you calling for (name of my company"?
DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION LIKE I DID

July 29th, 2008 Tomascco FL

I answered the call because I used to live in the 972 area code (North Dallas). I also order materials from Woot.com (Carrollton, TX), so I thought the call was benign enough. But when she hung up without a fight I began to get suspicious, so I Googled the number and here I am. Annoying but not threatening at the moment.

July 17th, 2008 Mikky

they call me several times a day in the moring and then at 8pm, as soon as i answer they hang up when i try to dail the # back it does not ring thru just hangs up. what can be done this is harassment?

July 17th, 2008 Steve UT

Called every day for a week, They don't say who they are, they ask for a company that doesn't exist.

July 3rd, 2008 S.C. AZ

Every day they call and every day I ask them to take me off their list and they say they will....but they don't.

June 27th, 2008 Michele AZ

So I found the website for First American Payment Systems, www.first-american.net and called their number, 800-701-2831. I was transferred to a guy's voicemail to be put on the DO NOT CALL list. We'll see...

June 27th, 2008 JPM

I usually don't pick up calls from "Unknown Caller", or in this case "Unknown Name". The latest trick telemarketers are using seems to be a non-toll free number shows up on your caller ID with the name "Unknown Name" showing. The "Unknown Name" is common from individuals calling from out of state. I have several friends who call me that my caller ID says the same thing. In this case I thought it might me one of those friends and low and behold it was these low life bottom feeders from a VISA, Master Card company wanting me to get a credit card. I just said "Leave Me Alone", and hung up on them.

Radio show host Dave Ramsey suggests if people from credit card companies keep calling you, just warn them one time that if they call back you will blast one of those aerosol air horns in their ear...and when another one of those losers does call, say, "I warned you what would happen if you called me again," and blast away.

June 25th, 2008 Huong Le

Did not leave message when got voice mail. Call came through my cell phone. This is the second time I was contacted by this number.

May 6th, 2008 Heather

I work for the same type of business this woman supposedly does. She called trying to get information about one of our clients. I did not oblige her as she was phishing and trying to steal our client.

November 21st, 2007 shan

I researched the compnay. This company is a merchant account processor among other things. They've been hit with lawsuits and government proceedings a number of times (look it up on the internet). I traced this number to a call center located in Dallas owned by 1st American Payment Systems. I kept getting their solicitation calls and they do the same deal....try to get the owner to the phone and then hang up if you won't do it. They ignore any request to remove you from their calling lists. The number for their corporate headquarters in Fort Worth is 1-800-701-2831. I called and gave their receptionist an earful and she transferred me to a Susie Harris...the Executive Secretary for the Sales Department. She took down my companys three numbers and said she would email it to the VP of Sales. We'll see what happens.
By the way, you can't have a business put on a "do not call" registry.

November 21st, 2007 Mike LA

These people use pushy/illegal sales tactics to get to the manager/owner of any business and use the phrase "we are going to be in your area and want to take a minute of your time to discuss rates". I have 2 businesses and fell for it once where they would come by and discuss credit card processing rates. I would sign up with this "too good to be true" rates and they would take a setup fee check from us and run. I would not hear from them again. I reported them to the FCC and police but they didn't do anything. Well, they also called my other business and we tell them that we're not interested and asked that they never call back. Well, they call everyday and not just everyday but sometimes up to 3-5 times per day! They would hang up on us when they know who picks up, asked for the owner and we tell them he doesn't takes unknown callers and they hang up. Very rude people and they will make your business life miserable. I reported them to the FCC again and asked for help but their reply was that we can only stop calls to "residential" only and because I was a business, that they couldn't help me. I don't know if that is true, but I have exhausted much time on trying to stop these people.

November 16th, 2007 BPA AL

they called, asked for the owner, I told them I was the sales manager and that the owner was not at this location, they hung up.

August 27th, 2007 C Raye OH

I get calls from these guys multiple times every week...sometimes rude, sometimes just hang ups. I plan on calling every number suggested here and harassing them back until they stop. IF THERE IS A CLASS ACTION, COUNT ME IN!!! In the mean time, I will contact an attorney myself that specializes in class action suits.

EVERYONE should call and complain and maybe they can do something - make sure you reference the caller ID number of (972) 428-2831 because that might be the problem employee or "branch"...

July 27th, 2007 Mark - Ithaca

A woman called yesterday from there looking for the owner. They are credit card merchant processors (or so she said). They called my business number. Today they called back and the guy was an ass.. Same thing... can't call the number back because it just hangs there without anything on other side...

July 25th, 2007 Macie IN

At our business, I had a call. CID said First AM PMT. Caller asked for the owner. I asked who it was and he said Ron. I asked what company he was with or if he was our customer. He said, "Keep going, I might hear something I like." I hung up on the smart A--

June 15th, 2007 bob OH

this number is transtech merchant group. They have repeatedly called my business with total disregard for the requests to remove our number from their lists. Why don't businesses have a do not call registry???? The number that shows up on the caller id does not allow incoming calls which is illegal from what I am told.

June 15th, 2007 Brad KS

These idiots call several times a year asking me to change my credit card processing to them. I have asked to be taken off the call list. They always ignore the request. I would not use this company, even if I WAS looking for another service provider. I get sick of their unsolicited calls.

June 12th, 2007 Aaron MN

June 6th, 2007 Dee

Just got another call from them. The first question they asked (yelling) was, "What time will you open in the morning". When I asked who was calling, they yelled, "Is the owner there", I said no and they slammed down the phone. Can this be stopped?

June 6th, 2007 Waco Attorney TX

They call frequently, almost daily to me and my wife at her business. I never answer, they hang up on my machine every time - some times I can hear them yelling or slamming the phone down.

April 18th, 2007 MM

I'm so glad I found this web site. I hopefully got phone numbers and addresses that I can use so I can finally give this company a piece of my mind. They call my house 3-4 times a DAY ask for someone who used to have my phone #, then become obnoxious & rude and hang up. I've also tried calling the # back with no luck. I like the idea of contacting investigating news reporters. I'll try that too.

April 16th, 2007 David

Hang up call, no message left.

April 12th, 2007 PD WV

April 10th, 2007 Frankie TX

I like to answer the call but say nothing. they will hang up w/in a few seconds. it wastes their time and hopefully frustrates them, as well.
BTW, if you try to call the number back, the call is disconnected. tricky little bastards.

April 9th, 2007 Infinity MI

I reported a phone call from First American Payment Systems just this morning. Then after Googling the company, I called an 800 and reached the following person, who gave me a direct number.
I spoke with a Latiffa Sharp. Her direct number is 817-317-7302, but you can reach her through the 800 number. She said she would take my number off their automatic dialing system. This remains to be seen; however, she was very polite and appeared to be genuinely interested in solving the problem. We will hope for the best. You might like to give it a try, as well. Good luck.

Didn't say who they were or what they wanted but caller id said they are "FIRST AM PMT". Reverse lookup says that they're in Dallas. Somebody nuke these bastards!

December 15th, 2006 Howard

Received a call at 10:47a EST on December 15th, 2006. Was asked several times if I was the owner and after. I asked him what it was pertaining about and who this was. Once I told him this was my personal cell phone he hung up. I have no idea who this company is.

November 29th, 2006 T in Syracuse

A man called from this number and asked for a person by name. He proceeded to avoid questions about the nature of the call to state that he wanted to do a physical verification of a business regarding a credit card application. The business he asked about is no longer under my address and no credit card application was ever submitted. When asked again who he is, he hung up. Then he called immediately back and asked to speak to the owner, when again asked who he is, he hung up a second time. He actually called a third time and hung up almost immediately. I tried to call back to avoid future 'prank' calls, but the number gives a 'can not be completed as you have dialed' message by both landline and cell phone.
Before this, a woman called and stated the company is based in Texas, would be in my area and wanted to do an in-person visit. She was trying to sell me 100% guaranteed major credit card and check cashing equipment. A reverse search on the number the man called from placed the number in Carrollton, TX. I think they might be linked. Either way, it is very intrusive, rude and unprofessional behavior.

November 28th, 2006 Ginny

they call and do not answer or they call until caller id answers then hang up..they leave no message..is this a ploy to get me to call back? well its not working !

November 21st, 2006 KM

going to be in my area and wanted to discuss credit card rates. Told Tracey I wasn't interested. She wouldn't take no. I told her I realized she was doing her job but I didn't... and she hung up on me.

November 20th, 2006 N.N.

They keep ringing, only want to speak to the owner or co-owner, sounds serious.

November 20th, 2006 Jane

These people are relentless. I am on the Do not call List also, but apparently this company does not care. They call at least 3 times a week!!!!!!!!!!!

November 17th, 2006 GREGORY

They call me everyday at the same time. I stopped answering it months ago. When I did answer no one would say anything.

November 9th, 2006 jan

They called and said they had someone in our area to discuss rates and they would be "right over." I said "what rates?" She said that these "rates" would be beneficial for our business. I hung up.

These idiots call at least 3 times a week and there's never anyone on the line when I answer.

They call all the time and never leave messages, they call several times a week, We all should report to FCC. Many scams are going on around via Internet , email and phone. the Ready Limo and the 866 area code are similar. I reported this to the TV reporters and investigators but have no answer yet.

They call often and the machine picks up, no message is left. I finally decide to find where to report this. Thanks. TH

TELEMARKETING, WON'T IDENTIFY THEMSELVES

Who are these people!?!? They ask for "The Owner", when you tell them the owner doesn't take calls, they hang up on you. They also won't tell you who they are or what they want.

going to be in my area and wanted to discuss rates


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.
