These people tried to get me to tell them which credit cards I had and the numbers to see if they could reduce my interest rate. They were abusive when I continued to inquire exactly WHICH card they were calling about. I have already reported them to the DNC list with a request that they jump on these scammers. Since it began with a recorded message (which is illegal in Calif.) I have filed a complaint with the State. There is a fine of $500 PER CALL for this so I encourage all to do the same.

Computerized "Amber" would like to reduce my credit card rate, whatever Amber call in person next time.
I too received the computerize Amber call, to my university work telephone. Press "1" and told the person who answered that I was turning their telephone number into the US Government's Do Not Call complaint form, and to the State of Nevada's AG.
The auto attendant, 'Amber', said she could make 'me' a special offer to reduce my credit card rates and to press "1" to speak to the agent. I did, and a 'Helen' (live person!) answered the phone... she said hello, and 'I understand that you wanna lower your interest rates today?'. I said, 'no, i'd actually like to know who you are looking for since there are several of us at this number (I didn't tell here this, but it's an office!). She hung up without saying a word.
