Went to the answering machine.

"Don't be alarmed, but this is your final notice for lower interest rates on your current account. This offer expires today. Press 1 to speak to your account manager and reduce your rates. This is your last offer of the season. Or press 2 to discontinue further notices. Thank you, and have a good day."

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.
