These calls have been on going for months. today's call on 4/10/09 was the first with a number 5 062 ---- and the first that did not drop when i pushed a key. I filed a police report last week and intend on using the stuff on this site to press them for some action. My phone company has been doing a song and dance, even with a police report case number. I have asked them to block all international incoming calls. they say they will get back to me. I am considering escalating this to a fraud case based on the stuff I see here and previous experience with phone fraud. Will post again when I have more info.

5-062-296-3512, "Warranty Services". Of course, when I asked WHOSE warranty services, they hung up on me. i read on another site that these phishing scam calls are coming from India, but I have no idea. The guy I briefly spoke to did not sound Indian.

I have received calls from 062-282-7140 and 062-230-3141. Both were in regards to vehicle warranties which do not apply to me. I have requested several times to have my number removed, but it does no good. I also have blocked some, but you can only block so many and they have too many numbers to block all. Not only am I on the "no call" registry but my number is unlisted. I have tried calling them back, my calls "could not be completed as dialed". Don't know what else to do except ignore these numbers. And they are a pain

It's some kind of telemarketer. The FCC has no jurisdiction because the call is originating outside of USA -- apparently Asia. When you answer the call if routed to a USA telemarketing center. This is how they get around the FTC/FAA Do Not Call Registry.

Also, if you answer and press ANY button on your phone, you may get routed to a 900 number and that is how a charge can show up on your bill. If you answer and they say "press X for XXX" don't do it.

The incoming # looked strange, so I did not answer and no voice message was left. I'm glad to have found postings similar to mine. I will report to FTC for what good it will do. Losing faith in government, if you know what I mean.

WHY DOESN'T THE FTC DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS? I AND SO MANY OTHER PEOPLE ARE GETTING THESE SCAM CALLS FROM 062 AREA CODE. MINE WAS PRECEDED BY A 5, MEANING IT IS FROM SOME COUNTRY OUTSIDE THE USA.
WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO TO GET THE FTC TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS???

I just received a phone call from: 5-062-222-6693. I know it is a scam so I just played along and pressed "1". And the person asked if I would
like to lower my visa or master card interest rate. I then played along and if they weren't representatives of master card or visa and they said "no" and I hung up!
I had no intention of giving them any info whatsoever, but they should be reported because they will probably get some elderly person to give them info.

These calls from Area Code "062" are from a credit card fraud ring that is trying to con people into disclosing their PIN or 3 digit credit card security code.

The Federal Trade Commission is aware of this operation. If you wish to file a complaint, call the FTC at 1-877-382-4357 (toll free).

Arrogant, aren't they...indeed. Been receiving calls like this lately. Mostly from "Card Services" but sometimes regarding alleged car insurance. I don't have a vehicle. I've pressed 1 and spoke to some and let them have it, yet they still call. I have been able to block 2 numbers so far, but they manage to change #s and keep calling. The area code of 5062 is in Longhai, China:

Act now if you want to lower your interest rate...

I get these calls a lot. The opt out option doesn't work. I finally got sick of it today and stayed on the line to talk to a person. As soon as I started asking questions, they hung up.

It screams scam. Don't talk to them.

been getting these calls quite often, and I usually don't answer. This time I press 1 to speak to a representative. When the person asked for my make and model of my car. I said who are you and why are you calling. He hung up. This is a scam. Be sure to warn young people who may not be as savvy as grown ups about this crap. Warn seniors too.

It has to be a spoofed call number. the country code of '5' does not exist, and the area code of '062' does not exist. Country code of 1 and 7 do. Area codes range from '2xx'-'9xx'. Any company that cant use a real number, should not be answered when they call.

062 is not a valid area code --- so they can avoid the DONOTCALL law.

Formerly part of South-Central Asia (numerical code 062): Kazakhstan, Kyrgyztan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan. Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Iran, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka.

I got a call from 5062-281-6564 around 9AM. I did not get to answer the call but in attempt to call back got a message about international long distance call failed. This 5062 area code seems to originate from Longhai...wherever the hell that is. Anyway, I have also in the past gotten calls from "heather with account services". Whoever these people are they need to have their fingers cut off with garden shears..bastards.

got a call from 800-395-2274 a little earlier saying they were HSBC calling about an Aspire card. I asked what does HSBC have to do with Aspire. He said they own it and I was behind 3 months in my payments and needed 619.00 right now with check by phone. Told him that was crap as all my cards were current. Next I get a call from this 062-216-2936 and did not answer but it was a Co. that works on credit card interest rates, consolidation or whatever as they left a message, no call back number of course on the machine. Anyway, these 2 might be connected as I called Aspire and they did not know of HSBC owing them. Who knows but this seems to happen all the time.

062-288-7572

OK, just in case no one figured it out, they are most likely calling from India. The area code is valid, but is reported to "South Central Asia" (see link below). I was dumb enough to pick up the phone (I confused 062 with 602- a local area code here) and was greeted by a recording saying something about lowering my interest rates on my account. I hung up naturally, since most financial institutions that call me state WHO THEY ARE almost right away, even in their recording.

I received a phone call on Monday June 9 at 11:09 am while I was at work from the phone number 506-220-91024. I didn't answer it because of the odd number of digits. No message.. and I sure as hell didn't call back. I did some research and a parentally this has been going on for a few months now to hundreds of people. I called my cell phone provider and she thanked me for calling and said that I recommend that everyone do it if thy get a call from a similar number so that they can alert someone about it. She told me that this happens every few years and that if they get enough calls they are required to turn it in to get get it investigated. The last time it happened, she got a phone call as well as 5 of her co-workers and after enough calls came through from customers they tracked it and got it stopped. so call your phone provider.. cell phone or other!!!

703-398-0839 - NRA (June 7,8,9,10 of 2008) I started getting these NRA calls after "Heather from Account Services" stopped calling. These individuals have called 4 times this week looking for "Mike". The past few times I've told them either to stop calling or that "Mike" was dead. Today when they called, we played along to see what the scam involved. They were seeking credit card info to update "Mikes" NRA membership. Also, they informed us that if we did so immediately, we'd get a new leather jacket. WOO HOO! On a positive note, I talked with my phone carrier who informed me that there was NOTHING they could do and I should have my number changed. Gotta love the service.

"Heather from Account Services" again.......

062-221-0470 - Unknown Name (5-22-8) Picked up call just to see if it was Heather again. It was and she wanted to lower my credit card interest rate. I pressed 2 to be removed from her list......... Like that will do any good.

These criminal telemarketers illegally leave fake information on your Caller ID (hence why some of the companies who you think are the ones calling really are not). The only way to stop them from calling you again and again (using different spoofed Caller ID info each time) is to report them using their real identities. Information on how to do this can be found at the only web site whose focus is to do just that: www.heatherwithaccountservices.com.

This number actually began as 1-062-221-0470. Obviously that does not have a valid area code. Some searching provided the information that the caller was 506-222-1047. And so we are back to the company who calls me wanting to reduce my credit card rates, a company that calls from So. California and various parts of Florida. Person who has called me from Ca. and Fla. is named Heather. Funny thing is that credit card rates don't apply to us as we NEVER run a balance. BTW, they don't remove your name. We have a phone number (for 5 years) that was previously a number of someone whose credit must be pretty bad as the collectors are constantly calling. You'd think that they would want their money badly enough to be calling the correct person. When I suggest that they back-search the number they are calling they get abusive. I finally was able to get an address through research and wrote the company. Their response was hopeful. We'll see.

He said he was calling from "Card Services". I asked if this was a nonprofit organization and he said "Of course, we're also a Christian organization". When I asked for a company name / address, he made one up and asked why I wanted to know. When I said it was to report to donotcall, he said "that's why it's a good thing I gave you a bogus address, you prick" and proceeded to call me a prick and an asshole several times.

Area code 062 is invalid. This was done intentionally so you can't file a complaint at donotcall.gov, because the government website requires a valid area code to file a complaint. THIS IS A CREDIT CARD/CAR WARRANTY SCAMMER. THEY ARE SEEKING CREDIT CARD NUMBERS AND OTHER PERSONAL INFORMATION THEY CAN USE TO SCAM YOU.
