Strange number and what happened:
August 1st, 2011, about 8:00 pm CST, a call comes in which we've received before - a recorded message sounding very stern saying "this is our last attempt to contact you to lower your credit card rate... - press 1 to lower your credit card rate". Usually, we just hang-up on the call or find it on voice-mail and just erase it.
This time, I decided to respond and pressed 1 - the phone rang and rang (about 10 or more times) then a woman answered asking "did you press 1 and wanted to lower your credit card rate?" I responded, "no - we'd like to be taking off your list". She said nothing and just hung up. The number on our caller ID was as you see - BOGUS - 907-002-967-252.
This could be one of two things - a telemarketing scam or a credit card fraud attempt. If I had gone along with the "I want to lower my credit card rate" thing, she may have been trying to get me to change credit cards by doing a consolidation to another card with a "lower rate", or she may have just asked me for all the info on my "high rate" credit card just so she could use my card for web transactions.
So - BEWARE! If I can get my phone company to research and tell me what the true number of the calling party was, I'll report back to this system to alert others.
