She called asked for me by my name. They said they were calling about my mastercard. I said I didn't have one, then she read off the last 4 numbers.. said something about sending me a walmart gift card. I hung up. They call 2 times a day. I've blocked #'s, but they still keep calling.
I ordered something online from an unsecure site - bumpits.com and they obviously gave out my name, phone #, and card #.
The same day I got the first call from them someone used my card and charged up $84 at another website. Had to cancel my card because of it.

Call came in as 213-732-2641. Gave a correct name & I asked him who he was and said was calling about Visa card.
Ask him what company he's called from and he gave somthing that sounded like "Evon" company. He claimed he was called to offer a special deale on discounted Wal-mart membership. I told him "not waned" and hung up on him.
This call appears to be in relation to the TV aide INFOMERCIALS (that I never fall for). The online form askes for your phone number so you can be reached for processing your order. This was a skin product "In An Instaint". . That prodect is getting sent right back (unopened). Be sure your phone numbers and email address get placed on the Online National Do Not Call List. It's simple to do... and then; no more 5am Informerciales for me!

I don't answer. It identifies as AVA but, calls two times a day, 7 days a week!

(Second call in one day - initially 10 or more seconds of silence)

Someone with a foreign accent worded his pitch sneakily to make it sound like he was with my "visa" company. (You have used your visa card / your visa card has been used / and we are rewarding you with...). I was immediately suspicious and told him I didn't have a visa card - he then quoted the last 4 digits of my card to me. I asked which company he was with and he said he was with a "rewards" company.

He had nothing to do with my bank or visa card, and I had never made a purchase or inquiry via the company he was calling from.

It sounds like they received information from another company that I used my bank card with, including the last 4 digits, my name and phone number, and were trying to get me to sign up for the "free gas card" pitches.

The caller would not tell me which company he received the information from, but just "one of your marketing partners". (I suspect Ronco). I informed him that I was on a no-call list, that I had never performed any business with his company, and I did not asked to be called. The caller said he would not call again.
