I got this call within 35 minutes of two other calls(all 3 different #'s) with the same recorded message about lowering your credit card rates. I pressed"1" to find out more. A woman answered and asked if I had more than 3000.00 in credit card debt. I answered NO and she hung up on me!

Robo call stating it's my second & final notice for lowering my credit card interest & payments but need to do so before the next billing cycle as it relates to the financial stimulas.
I don't make credit card payments, I pay them off in full, not in part & have paid them off in full for years & years & years.......These people need to get a life.

Nothing that you do will stop them from calling you. The major players behind this have made millions of dollars, which means that they are too big to fail.
One of the major players specializes in aiding the rich with tax evasion and shell corporations set up in Belize. You can bet that the well to do in this country are not getting lower your credit card interest rate calls and due to that fact our government just considers a few phone calls a minor annoyance.
The FCC has temporarily halted 5 of the minor unprofitable boiler rooms. They will receive a slap on the wrist and be back at it within a few days.
In the meantime the calls will continue since the major money is being made with what is called a CNAM revenue-sharing program through companies like http://www.telephonemanagement.net
In their own words: Every day your company makes thousands of outbound phone calls. Every one of those calls generates revenue for many companies, why not yours? Our CNAM revenue-sharing program helps you make money every time a Caller ID request is made by a phone carrier. A high-traffic call center can lose hundreds to thousands of dollars a day to phone carriers by allowing them to charge for access to your own data.

You can now see why the criminals keep calling even though they know you won't fall for their scam. If someone does make the mistake of answering the phone and falling for their con then it is just icing on the cake for them. These people are the lowest form of filth on this planet. The only way to stop this is to contact the FBI and ask why this crime family is allowed to operate and facilitate the ongoing criminal operations. This is one of the reasons that the RICO act was put in place, so why aren't they using it. Is this because this isn't a high profile, news worthy operation or is the FBI too understaffed and busy with Homeland Security issues. Maybe if we were rich they would take this seriously, but then if we were rich we would be using that criminal organizations services and protecting them instead of trying to shut them down.
There is a blog site that has information on one of these operations: http://telemarketerspam.wordpress.com

What To Do When You Get an Illegal Robocall; http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/microsites/robocalls
1. Hang Up. Do not press 1 or any other numbers to get off the list.
2. Consider blocking the number
3. Report it at http://www.fcc.gov/complaints
4. Report it at https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov
5. People should continually file complaints with their Attorney Generals office.
Register your phone numbers online at http://www.donotcall.gov or call 888-382-1222 (must call from # you want removed).

The criminals behind this operation aren't going to pay attention to you asking to be removed from their list. Their calls cost them nothing and they can make thousands of them a day so they have no intention of ever removing someone. When you press a key to talk to them all that is accomplished is to verify that they have a working number. So what is their reason to continue calling even though they know you won't fall for their scam?
It's called the CNAM revenue-sharing program. Here is the explanation direct from the website of one of these operations. http://www.telephonemanagement.net
'Every day your company makes thousands of outbound phone calls. Every one of those calls generates revenue for many companies, why not yours? Our CNAM revenue-sharing program helps you make money every time a Caller ID request is made by a phone carrier. A high-traffic call center can lose hundreds to thousands of dollars a day to phone carriers by allowing them to charge for access to your own data.'

You can now see why the criminals keep calling even though they know you won't fall for their scam. If someone does make the mistake of answering the phone and falling for their con then it is just icing on the cake for them. These people are the lowest form of filth on this planet.
Write your Congressmen and Senators. We need CRIMINAL penalties against the companies that are profiting from these calls. Follow the money, slap them in prison, no one left to outsource to overseas boiler rooms, problem solved. The government needs to go after them using the RICO act. That will be the only effective means of dealing with this.
Here is an excellent blog site that I found that explains how one company is getting away with this activity.

Criminals are calling you. Robocall messages are now illegal, they ignore Do Not Call list. They'll ask for your credit card numbers. Call back and follow prompts to make them stop calling you.

11/08/2012 at 11:50am. I received a call today from 213-375-0008. The caller ID has the name "Card Services". I didn't pick up because I have received a call from with caller ID before. Previously the message was to call this number to receive a reduced rate on my card. It didn't specify the card. It is a bogus call. I am on the Do Not Call list, yet this # managed to get through. I am filing a complaint with the FCC.

They called to my cell phone many times. I pressed "3" as they offer to discontinue calling but they called then again.

This # displayed with "Card Services" on my caller ID. It was the pre-recorded message from "rachel from card services ...no problem with accounts... but it is my final notice to lower my interest rates". If only it was actually the 'final notice' .... I've received at least a dozen calls from as many different numbers, with the same recording, same voice, same everything. I've started reporting every one of them to the FTC/FCC. It's a scam, phishing, spoofing and illegal. Yes, my number is on the Do Not Call list and has bee for years.
Oh by the way, the last call I got was from 905-000-0000 (which is an area code for Ontario, CANADA, and it displayed "name not found".
