AWD CAM Services |
awdcamservices calls from 4 phone numbers:
did not leave any message
answered with company name. got a HUH? then they hung up.
so do not know who called or why.
only thing known is OREGON CALL 971-373-2998 from caller id.
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
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!
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.
The caller claimed to represent "Card Services" and he fraudulently insisted that my address was his company's address.
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!
PacificTel is a company owned by Mr. Stephen Hamilton.
Business address 12228 Venice Blvd. #559 Los Angeles CA 90066.
Business direct line of (310) 895-0574.
I am on of the carriers that terminated this guys calls today. Sorry about that. Blocking it on our sonus.
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!!!!!

The call had to do something with lowering interest rates on credit cards.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
On do not call but they keep calling. How do you file complaint with FTC?
I hung up because I suspected fraud.
My answer machine seems to keep these creeps from leaving a message. If they were legit they would. I am on dnc list.
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.
got a call from rachel.she is working for another company called pacifictel and wants all your information with a automated call.
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...
I didn't pick up. They didn't left a message.
Called me on 2/1/2012. Let it go to voice mail but no message was left.
I didn't pick up. They left no message. Jerks!!!!
Same rap...didn't answer and no message was left.
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
Have no business with them. Blitz dialer.
213-550-3111 called my do not call cell phone 3 times today.
Death to the scammin' scum! ;)
SCAMMERS..SCAMMER..SCAMMERS..ALL THE TELEMARKETERS ARE USING THE MAJIC JACK NOWADAYS...WHICH MEANS THAT THEY USE A DEVICE WITH ANY PHONE NUMBER IN THE COUNTRY NOT IN USE..WHEN YOU CALL IT BACK..THE COMMON TAPE RECORDING WILL SAY THAT THE NUMBER IS NOT IN SERVICE..IF YOU DO NOT RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER..DONT ANSWER IT...THE PHONE IS SEARCHING FOR PEOPLE TO ANSWER..ONCE YOU ANSWER THE CALL THEY LOCK YOU IN TO THOUSANDS OF OTHER AVAILABLE TELEMARKETERS WHO WILL CALL YOU..
been getting this call on my home phone, and today on my cell.
Everyone whines about being on the Do Not Call List, but you have to realize that that only keep honest companies from calling.
These are all the numbers that have called my house in the past week alone.
All but one, multiple times.

I am on the Do not call registry. Why are they allowed to call me?
They called and i didnt answer
I want the DNC list enforced! This is frustrating!
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.
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.
"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!
Did not leave message. Caller ID listed, "LOSANGELES CA".
NO Call List number.
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?
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.
Scam, scam, scam!!! (Prison Inmates???)
Got a phone call from a number that I don't
Unfortunately, this is a political survey. They are exempt from Do Not Call. The best way to stop the calls is block the number.
Caller ID Name: 2135503111
I hung up because I suspected fraud.
pre-recorded message asking me to take a survey. How do you stop these calls? Why are they oblivious to the No-Call lists?
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.
2 calls this AM, Didn't pick up first call; second was interest rate reduction on CC.
hung up as soon as i answered
what is the point of making a bunch of calls if you just disconnect when people answer>?
called, I answered, they hung up. dipshits
This is a survey partisapation.
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.
wants to bite me
Just received a call from this number on my mobile. Have no idea who it is, although the area code is Los Angeles.
