Called my cell, I answered and it gave me the prompt. I pressed 1. A person came on the line, after I told them I had less than 1,000 in credit card debt she said I didn't "qualify to lower my interest rate". Sounds like a complete scam. Why would they cold call people ON THEIR CELL PHONES if they don't have any information? What a nuisance.

"This is Erica from the Credit Card Service Center. Do not be alarmed..." I hung up. There are no credit cards in my name, and my cell phone is on the do not call list.

Called my cell at 9:30 am on 10.19.09. No message. I called number on another phone and got a message about if I did want to be on their "Preferred Marketing' list to dial one and to have a nice day. Needless to say I did not dial one as instructed. Also stated that it would take up to 72 hours to remove my number.

Here is the transcript of the voicemail message. Credit card bamboozlement, but nothing political:

"This is your official notice that effective today you are now eleigible to lower your credit card interest rates, to as low as 4.9%. In order to lock in your lower credit card rates, you need to respond immediately before your eligibility expires. Please consider this your final notice. Call me toll free at 1-877-282-3707, on Mondays through Fridays, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Eastern Standard Time. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your day."

The 877 number has been used quite a bit as a scam as well. Google brings up plenty of hits. Here's the link to another "whocalledme" site on it.

Received a call from them today, 8/27/09. A robocaller started in on a spiel about my credit card. I don't have a credit card with the number they called me at on it.

Fraudsters. Plain and simple.

Called my cell phone today, 8.27.09; nothing on caller ID; did not leave a message.

Gee, Jack, I think you are full of it -- none of the other recipients have reported anything like what you did. But, for the record, Democrat message received.

Recorded message about receiving help with mortgage debt. I pressed 1 to be transferred to a representative and asked to be put on their do not call list. The girl who answered just hung up on me.

Another robo attack calls from the RNC. If you ever had a desire to vote for these clowns, one of their robo calls will convince you you've chosen the wrong team.
