same thing, credit card, I don't even answer now, because if I do not recognize # I am not answering, I also have call intercept as well so they are wasting their time.
I HAVE BEEN RECEIVING CALLS FROM THIS NUMBER FOR THE PAST WEEK ALMOST DAILY - I DON'T ANSWER AND NO MESSAGE IS LEFT. 7/19/09
I got a call from this number on 02/17/09. The number shows up and I did not answer. From reading the postings, it sounds like it is the same company who also calls from a 571-261-0046
number. The message is the same and when I press 2 to be removed fro the list, the call simply hangs up.
I get this same phone call EVERY single day at my office. I am not joking...it's every day. Yes it's credit card services. I have gotten someone that says they are going to take me off the list and then I get a call the very next day. Then I get the ones that hang up on me immeadiately. Then the last time I just said F@ck You and hung up on them. (I know, not professional but it's so frustrating...I just had to release some steam) So, I had a quick chuckle and then low and behold they called back today and when I pressed 1 and the guy came on and all he did was chant some primitive sounds and hung up. So it seems like they can recognize our phone numbers and can tell when we are calling too. IS THERE NOTHING WE CAN DO? Because I the next time I may not be so nice. :)
Ridiculous offers for lowering credit card debt... Representative very rude and offensive telling my mother to "blow" him! My family and I are almost always courteous to these reps. and try to ask to be removed from calling list, respectively! It blows my mind that a company could actually employ a person to consistently annoy a normally peaceful household... Then continuing, rudely, to insult family members and then have the nerve to hand the phone to their "supervisor". This person was surely not a supervisor of any type, and if they were they should be immediately fired, because they were practically as rude as the original rep! The FCC needs to handle these cases more serioulsy for the sake of your everyday household's sanity!!!!

same deal. "Card Services".
I have a Skype-in number (a US number which I can use anywhere in the world). I only give this number to family and friends in the U.S., so they can call me cheaply. Like others who have commented before, the recording left in my voice mail did not start from the beginning and made an offer for a lower credit card rate that expires soon. There were two options: 1) press 1 to get the lower rate, and 2) press 2 to opt out.
Call received at 9:32am on 1/19/09. Name on Caller ID was "Card Services". Our telephone number is unlisted, so the call must have been made by an autodialer. What I don't understand is, what legitimate company makes business calls on federal holidays?

I called back and got a fast busy signal
I didn't answer and they didn't leave a message. Area code is Washington D.C. area, so I didn't call back.
I recieved a call from that same number... it was at 11:47am on january ninth 2009....the call is from washington, dc, dc.... the caller stayed on the line for 4 seconds while i yelled "hello" then hung up... i've attempted to call this number back several times but have only gotten a busy signal...
Recorded message said I could get lower interest rates. They call often and use other numbers. I answered once as I was already on the phone and call waiting bleeped in. I just hung up.
just received this call at work. financial freedom/hit 1 to talk to representive no one picked up
I pressed ignore, as I normally do with numbers I don't recognize, and was called a minute later by another number - 859-908-2822

They call in the ICU of our hospital frequently and hang up when we ask what they want.
Persistent callers, who never leave a message--Returned the call since it appeared to be a local number (for me), but found it to be a scam that asked for your credit card number.
EVERYONE WHO GETS THIS CALL SHOULD NOTIFY THE FCC!!!!

These idiots (Card Services) have been calling me at least every 2 - 4 weeks for 2 years. They always start with a taped message "...an important notice regarding your credit cards. You may be eligible for lower interest rates, but you must act now or you will lose eligibility. This is your final notice." Then they give an option of pressing 1 for a live person, and recently have added press to to be taken off their list. I always choose to talk with a live person. When I have asked for a phone number, I get hung up on, or (today) the woman said "Do you think I'm STUPID?" Some will agree to take me off their call list, but it never does any good. Others hang up when I request to be taken off their list.
Person called and was talking about my mother please have manager call me ASAP at 602-459-1232
Card Services offering a lower interest rate -- who then hung up on me when I asked who they were. Said that they work with Visa, Mastercard, etc. Jerks.
I string them along using false info, it's the best way to
get back at them. It turns out they are a company called
Priority Direct Marketing, with a customer service number
, and they want to charge you $590.00 to
get your credit card company to lower your rates....
I used option 1 to talk to customer service. When customer service answered I asked to have my number removed from their calling list and she hung up before I could finish my sentence.
I pressed one and asked what card of mine they were with and the woman hung up!?
Didn't answer and no voice mail was left. Based on the other comments, I'll be sending them straight to voice mail from now on.
they called, left no message...glad i found this site so i dont waste my time or minutes.
They left a voice message... appears to be automated as they didn't wait for the beep and I only caught the last few seconds of the message. When I called back using a different number, an automated system picked up saying they got the number from a survey I participated in. I just hung up.
I do not know who the heck this is, I have family in the MD D.C. area so I tried calling back. I received a automated message about some financial offer. Stupid waste of time.
Called me erlier i did'nt answer it.

Another scam. The call was automated and said it was an urgent message from "credit card services" and i was eligible for a lower interest rate. I pressed one and told them to fuck off, like i normally do. Since trying to opt out never works.
No reply when call was answered. Returned call and got a recorded message telling me I had "opted in" to receive offers, though no company name was given. That is total BS. I never give my cell number to anyone but friends, family, and immediate coworkers. They offered a chance to "opt out" but ask to verify your phone number first. That probably just gets you signed up for more calls. FCC complaint headed their way, whoever this is!
