I have been at WAR with these people for the past year and a half. I no sooner get to stop calling on one phone number and they start up all over again with a different number, which is always from a different state than the number before it.

I have a record of over 150 calls from over 50 phone numbers. They call themselves Account Services, or Credit Card Services. They offer to lower your interest rate on outstanding debt on Visa or Master Card (no other cards are accepted). To "Qualify" you must have over $4000 in debt at an interest rate higher than 10%.


Then they want to verify that you are in good standing on at least one card. Of course that means a card you are not delinquent and has a high available credit.

They will not give you a valid call-back number, I finally weaseled a business address from them, supposedly here in Houston, but the area code that showed up on my phone was in Denver. and the address did not exist. When I ask for a faxed application, they dodge, hang up and bail.

They want your information, but they will not give you anything to identify them. This spells one thing only

!_!_!__T_H_I_S___I_S___ A___S_C_A_M___!_!_!

When it started it was only once a month they would call. Now it is 3-5 calls in a single day. Either hang up and tolerate the hassle, or file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission and the FBI.

I have two complaints with the FTC and one with the FBI.

Robo caller (female) claimed it was an important message from credit card services. I hung up. I should think a legit caller would ask for a credit card holder by name and not just broadcast a recorded message to anyone who answers the phone. Tired of these calls. Area code is Oregon.

These calls must be stopped. They are against the Do Not Call List. Gov should arrest these people.

Damn auto dialers with robotic voices. STOP the madness!

May 3rd, 2012 Chris MO

Phone rang. I answered, but there was no one there. After a few clicks, it disconnected. Pretty sure it's West Financial Inc, who has been calling from a variety of numbers lately.

God I am sick of these people! "important message about your credit cards" press one to talk to a human being. Tell her not to call ever again they hang up. The do not call registry does not work any more.

April 27th, 2012 Not Buying It TX

The caller claimed to represent "Card Services" and he fraudulently insisted that my address was his company's address.

April 25th, 2012 bob

They say pres 3 to be removed from their list, but how the hell am I supposed to do that if it a message left on my answering machine. I am NOT interested in lowering my interest rate or improving mny credit score. Quit calling me you douchebags!

I am on of the carriers that terminated this guys calls today. Sorry about that. Blocking it on our sonus.

April 24th, 2012 mt TX

After the initial blah, blah, blah, "press 3 to discontinue receiving offers" just doesn't seem to work AND I guess the "Do Not Call" list is just as much as SCAM as these calls are. I would classify these people as harrasement calls, wouldn't you? So, why isn't anyone putting these *^%&#$@ - ers out of business? This type of cat-and-mouse has been going on now for three + years. I'm with JStorm - Zero balance accounts just proves these guys are phishing and fraudulent. ENOUGH!!!!!

April 24th, 2012 Ron FL

The call had to do something with lowering interest rates on credit cards.

April 24th, 2012 Kat OK

Pacific Tel has called 4 times this month, from 4 different Phone Numbers.
Probably someone spoofing the Caller ID for Credit Card Scam.

Called at 1148, and again at 1150, this morning, from PACIFICTEL according to Caller ID. Left NO message. Had 2 this past Saturday that came up UNKNOWN on Caller ID, probably the same people.

April 23rd, 2012 KC TX

Called but did not leave a message. Now on my call block list. No doubt they'll call again using a different phone number tomorrow. Sooo sick of these people.

April 23rd, 2012 Tammy

received automated call stating nothing was wrong with my "account" but I urgently needed to return call to have my interest rates on my credit card lowered. Going to be a little difficult seeing as I don't have any CREDIT CARDS!!

April 23rd, 2012 jogo TX

left message about lowering interest rates - is 503 area code the new phone number for DNC list violators? My call block is filling up from 503 numbers.

Wondering if we wanted to lower the rates on our credit cards. Why would I need that on a $0 balance? S-C-A-M.

April 19th, 2012 ruebin MT

April 19th, 2012 Jules

It was an "important message about your credit cards, this is your last notification....." This is an unsolicited call. I have tried to have these kinds of calls stopped but they just call back with different phone numbers. I have complained but to no avail.

A prerecorded message saying they were calling with a political survey; and that my reward for answering the survey questions would be a trip or cruise to somewhere in the Caribbean; I think they said The Bahamas. Total scam. I hung up.

Date/time of call was Feb. 1, 2012; 9:14am Pacific time.

They were calling my personal, unpublished cell number. When I called back their number from a landline for the heck of it, there was a bogus message saying the line was not in service, and to call 911 if I had an emergency. Ha! Get a life, scammer...

February 3rd, 2012 Awilda GA

I didn't pick up. They didn't left a message.

February 3rd, 2012 bart MA

Called me on 2/1/2012. Let it go to voice mail but no message was left.

February 2nd, 2012 Kim OR

2/2/12 Just received call from 213-550-3111 out of LA, California claiming to be a political survey, then claiming to give out free trips from caribbean cruises. Did the survey generic by pressing 1's and when Leroy answered I just listened. I actually thought Leroy was also a recording until he started asking if anyone was there, but did not hang up. I could hears lots of people behind Leroy doing the same scam. I heard so many people talking the talk that I pictured some great call center, but it's probably some scam place that hires random people to do this scam in a generic office.

Leroy was telling someone that he thought they hung up and kept saying Caribbean Cruise, you won a free cruise and chuckling, like he wasn't sure what to do, stay on the line hoping some old lady would respond or hang up. This went on for about 4 minutes until he finally sounded disappointed and hung up. There were manyI should have grabbed my recorder, but wasn't thinking.

Don't fall for this scam!

I get one scam call a day it seems

February 2nd, 2012 shalomlej TN

February 2nd, 2012 Greg UT

Everyone whines about being on the Do Not Call List, but you have to realize that that only keep honest companies from calling.

February 2nd, 2012 David TX

They called and i didnt answer

February 2nd, 2012 Linda CT

I want the DNC list enforced! This is frustrating!

February 2nd, 2012 hmmm CA

They hang up bc the call is automated, just trolling to see when you are home. After they've established you're home at certain hrs, they put a live body on the line.

February 2nd, 2012 pwr TX

If the government isn't going to enforce DNC, why not just repeal it and fire the useless government bureaucrats that are being paid to be ineffective. We'd all be better off.

February 2nd, 2012 RMFL

"Opinion survey", with obvious, stupid answers. By participating I will get a free cruise to the Bahamas. Oh, but there are port charges and fees. Yeah right. Robo call, unsolicited. Reported to FCC. Won't do any good, but I did it!

February 2nd, 2012 Terri NY

Did not leave message. Caller ID listed, "LOSANGELES CA".

February 2nd, 2012 Robert VA

NO Call List number.

February 2nd, 2012 Leslie

ON MY CELL PHONE! Sent a voice message that said I would receive a free cruise for participating in a - of course that is left out. We are not employed, we have no money and no credit - and we just contested on BOTH our cell phones photo messages sent by a wrong number. I thought that mobile phone bill failed? Or like everything - including a Federal Budget - is is still waiting to be HEARD in the Senate?

February 2nd, 2012 TracyG TX

I understand if it's a political survey that the DNC list doesn't apply but this call was to my cell phone and offering a cruise? I don't think so, someone's just trying to get around the DNC rules.

February 2nd, 2012 Annoyed CA

Scam, scam, scam!!! (Prison Inmates???)
Got a phone call from a number that I don't

February 1st, 2012 Kathy CT

Unfortunately, this is a political survey. They are exempt from Do Not Call. The best way to stop the calls is block the number.

February 1st, 2012 Not Buying It TX

Caller ID Name: 2135503111

I hung up because I suspected fraud.

February 1st, 2012 upisdown WI

pre-recorded message asking me to take a survey. How do you stop these calls? Why are they oblivious to the No-Call lists?

February 1st, 2012 Al Crawford WI

Robocall claimed to be "Ann from Political Opinions Of America". No such organization. Google search suggests it's a scam that turns into one of these "2 day vacation in the Bahamas" thing.

February 1st, 2012 GS CA

2 calls this AM, Didn't pick up first call; second was interest rate reduction on CC.

February 1st, 2012 no thanks OH

hung up as soon as i answered

February 1st, 2012 useless

what is the point of making a bunch of calls if you just disconnect when people answer>?
called, I answered, they hung up. dipshits

February 1st, 2012 chiefbob NY

This is a survey partisapation.

February 1st, 2012 Dog WA

0932-1 Feb12- Message came and immediately shut down upon learning they had my message machine. They know they are guilty before they even try to talk to anyone live. I'm sure its a scam because anyone who really wants to talk to me knows how to properly do it. You don't hide behind a fake number such as this.

February 1st, 2012 santa WA

wants to bite me

February 1st, 2012 Marsha TX

Just received a call from this number on my mobile. Have no idea who it is, although the area code is Los Angeles.
