They are calling for a person we don't know. We have told them to stop calling.
Actually, I HAVE asked them to stop calling me as I've been receiving these calls from various numbers since the New Year. The first time, after following directions that I was interested in their 'reduction service', I got a human. I was told I'd be removed. After 4 days, I knew it hadn't happened and did the same again. I got another person who confirmed my telephone number and assured I'd be removed. Didn't happen. Third time, I got someone who just outright hung up on me as I was asking...filed claims with the FCC and waiting for resolution. Good Luck! File a claim and join me!
This was the third call from this particular number. Have received numorous calls from other "long distance" numbers, all of which have been Cell Phone And a state... This group of solicitors blatantly ignore the National Do Not Call Registry but as with the other numbers I will continue to file compaints and include the exact practices of using a cellular service, pre-recorded message, and failure to comply with the Do Not Call law. Eventually it will catch up not only with this caller but with all of their cohorts in crime who are using the same practices. And hopefully it will cost them so much money they will end up in the red on their profit sheets. That is about all we can do since they are using methods to prevent us from saying STOP CALLING ME!
can't return call without long distance involved credit card rate reduction scam
Just had my 2nd call today. I'm really tired of them. I filed complaints with the DNC Registry and the FCC. I've already received confirmation from the FCC with a reference number but no further info yet. Surprisingly, the last 4 calls over a couple of days have been using this same wireless number. That's a change as they've previously rotated so many numbers they're difficult to keep track of. I AM trying to list them all here. It's going to be very difficult to pin them down but there will be many thankful people if it happens!

We have been receiving random calls from what is showing up as cell phones and other long distance calls from area codes and numbers we don't know. So far they have not bothered leaving any messages unless we actually answer the phone and then it's an automated pre-recorded solicitation for reducing credit card debt.. The really funny thing is. WE DON'T HAVE ANY CREDIT CARDS OR CREDIT CARD DEBT!!! We don't know how they came to get our phone number and they have never asked for anyone by name. And since our phone number is unlisted it makes for some very annoying harrassing phone calls. Well. This is our answer to this kind of call. If the people making these calls are checking out this site to see if people are complaining about their calls... Get this! Every time you call us, no matter what phone number you use, we file a complaint against you for violation of the National Do Not Call Registry because our number has been registered on the do not call list for over a year which makes your calls illegal!

This is one of over 20 cell phone numbers these crooks have called with. I never answer the calls because I know their MO.

Came in as a wireless call.No message.
This is one of many unidentified numbers that have been calling me regarding "credit card interest rate reduction". They have called me from at least 10 different numbers, never identifying themselves, and I have asked in person 3 times for them to stop calling and they persist. Don't answer if you don't recognize the caller.
