I've been receiving calls from "Heather from Account Services" (but not necessarily from this phone number; mostly unknown name and number) ever since I got a new phone number in May. I've been hung up on whenever I tried to get information, but today I got more than I've ever gotten before by pretending to be an elderly Visa holder, and here's my conclusion. I think they're not a legit debt consolidator, but just a phishing scheme to get credit card numbers - I think this because they asked me, after a few questions about how much debt I had and what my current interest rate was, how close to my limit I was. When I said I had a couple hundred dollars until I reached my limit, the kid on the other end of the line said, "I'm sorry we can't help you then." That leads me to believe they just want the numbers of your credit card, not your business. So since they're crooks, I don't think complaining to the Do Not Call Registry is going to make any difference. you need to report it to the attorney general of whatever state you're in.

WiLieR--was it a recording? What did it say?

I was able to place the call via Google area code and prefix look up as coming from Portland, ME, but no other info to ID the number...unless I *want* to pay $39.95 to some company...yeah...right...

Same recording, different phone number (first time this number has come up, and Google has no info for it)

"Hello! This is Heather from Account Services. There is nothing worng with your current credit, but..."

I hung up at that point and reported the number to Do Not Call registry.
My number has been on the DNC list since 2006.
It's also against the law in CA to make inttial phone calls using a recording. the law clearly states that initial calls must be made by an actual (live) person.

Anyone else getting this number calling them?

Looks very close to the same call that I got moments ago from 207-419-5031.
