The pitch is that they can lower my interest rate on my credit card. I pressed one to get more information. The caller stated that they were "affiliated" with the major bank credit card companies and specifically mentioned Chase and BOA where I do have a credit card. He said if I owed over $3500 I would be eligible for a lower rate. I asked him if this involved getting a new credit card from another source and he specifically said "No" my current cards would be lowered and I would not be consolidating my credit card charges onto a new card. He then asked which credit cards had interest rates over 10%. I told him I would have to go look as some are over 10% and some are not. He then asked me for my credit card #'s. I said "You actually expect me to give you my credit card information over the phone?' "If you are affiliated with the banks that I have my credit cards with then why do you not have this information on file already?" He then said he was too busy to talk to me any further and hung up. BEWARE this is a scam operation.

I did not pick up the phone and will block the number from now on. So much for the Do Not Call List!

Check out the neighborhood online first.

I had the same problem with a person named Camille--she gave out my number as hers, then I found her (look up this number 800-576-2419).

Once I saw where she lived, I through better of stopping by.

These collection agencies are looking for an Amanda Alton. I've gotten 3 or 4 collection agencies looking for them. (I've done some intense searching and found out Alton had my phone # last year. What's more, they still live in the same town as me!)I've found where they are, and may just pay them a visit.....
