I received a call from 302-458-1590 saying their was activity on one of my credit cards. When I called back the number that was given to me, which was, 800-427-2449 they said they had no record of calling and that the call might have been fishing for credit card numbers and other info

IT IS NOT Bank of America, it is a phishing attempt!
Got a call from this number on 9/8/11. Woman stated she was our BOA "account representative”. Wanted me to make a payment on our credit line which she stated was past due. She also wanted a payment on my husband’s credit card. Neither account payment was actually due for 2 more weeks. She knew enough about our accounts to be credible, but something about her attitude set off red flags. She even threatened that we could be foreclosed on if we didn’t make a payment. At one point, she put me on hold to “check something” even though she had earlier indicated she had all our account information in front of her. At that point I hung up. Next morning my husband called BOA and spoke to several divisions (mortgage, credit cards, and equity/lines of credit). Each of these divisions stated categorically that no one from BOA had called us and there was nothing in their account systems to indicate there was any reason for us to be contacted. No one in any of these divisions could confirm that the phone number is actually a BOA number. They all said we should report the call to BOA fraud department. Don’t give anyone who calls you from this number any information. They appear to be phishing!

Yes, they left message, I called my card's number (not the one they left) and they confirmed that they had called. Sure enough there was a charge (confirmed online) for a hotel 2000 miles away on my card. Card cancelled. {sigh}

Remember that in January, 2006, MBNA merged with and into Bank of America. MBNA America Bank, National Association, (MBNA) then became a wholly owned subsidiary of Bank of America. In June, 2006, MBNA changed its name to FIA Card Services, so your card may be serviced by BofA or FIA and you may not know it.

Bottom line, if this number calls, call you own card number right away.

Always call the number on the back of your card.

Don't call any other number, no matter what they tell you.

I received a call from this number 302-458-1590.
What I find it odd is that it was from Card Services for Bank of America Fraud Department and then the caller "Ashley Nicols" gave me another number 1-866-622-7929.
Usually, don't they send you an email with an 800 number if something happens with your Credit Card?
I called the 1-866-622-7929, the rep said that someone was trying to charge my credit card and it was declined.
I had to varified of the charge.

I got a voicemail from this number, and the woman identified herself as someone from Bank of America. She told me that I received a "financial request" and she wanted to verify some information. She told me to call 888-231-6262. I called Bank of America's Fraud Department directly, and asked them about it. They said it COULD have been two of my transactions, so they asked me to verify those transactions.

So... I still don't know if this was a legitimate number or not. If this happens to you, call Bank of America directly, and obviously don't call the number they give you or give any information to them.

I had someone calling me from this phone number saying they were from bank of america and wanted to talk about some business I had with them. They gave me the number 877-733-5734 as a contact number and the person identified himself as Bill Simpson. I called the number off the back of my credit card and they verified that it was NOT a bank of america number and that if they had business with me they would first send a letter in the mail and that I did the right thing by not saying anything and calling them.

This is a legitimate number. It is BOA Card Services and your account payment is late. If you give them your name and address they can pull up your account. Don't have to give them your CC number or SS#.

I received a legitimate call from this number. Called BofA directly and there was indeed suspicious activity.

That said, it appears from the comments that scammers may be spoofing this phone number.

Your best bet, if you receive a phone call, is to not give information over the phone and call your bank back directly using the phone number on the back of your card.

There seems to be a flawed assumption in these posts that if you are not immediately scammed, then everything is cool. It's very simple - anyone that reaches out to you is very likely trying to scam you in one way or another. If someone claims to be calling about your credit card, then end the call, call the number on the back of your credit card, and inquire further.

ANYONE can post a comment here. There is no validation or repercussion.

Scams exist and this one reeks of a scam. Can you afford to risk your money, safety, and identity?

My call from this number was completely valid. He called telling me there was some suspicious activity on my card and listed the transactions. He closed my account (which I confirmed by checking my online banking) and said he was going to send me an affidavit in the mail and a new credit card. I never once gave him any information - I just confirmed my address and the automatic payment HE told me I had. We got disconnected, so I tried to call back and got a message saying "thank you for calling card services, this number is inactive". Suspicious, yes. So I called the number on the back of my card, and the actual Bank of America employee confirmed everything.

Do not completely disregard the call, but double check with the number on the back of the card or another number from the Bank of America website. They have access to Bank of America's system, and 100% of what the guy said/did on the phone with me was confirmed by Bank of America. He said he closed my account, and I looked immediately at the website, and it was closed.

NOT A FAKE CALL. NOT A SCAM. JUST DON'T GIVE OUT PERSONAL INFO AND CALL THE CONFIRMED BANK OF AMERICA NUMBERS IF YOU ARE NOT SURE.

Lastly, if there is a scam, I am certainly not in on it. Would I tell you to confirm everything with Bank of America if I was? I'm just trying to let people know that it's possible that it's a legit number, since it was for me. It's just an outgoing call center; they don't take incoming calls, so just call the number on the back of your card and you'll be fine.

One rep from Card Services named "Betty" w/ such a thick accent I couldn't understand all of what she said has called my husband's cell and his sister's cell & home # since 2/12/10. She called Saturday @ 6:16 a.m.! Then again before 9a to leave a message. Today we've gotten two calls, one from a more "professional" sounding rep named "Adam Simpson" identifying himself as calling from FIA CARD SERVICES and another call from "Betty." Both people are calling regarding a BofA account of my mother-in-law's, but we're already dealing with BofA directly about it. My sister-in-law actually talked to "Betty" and she read off the last 4 digits of the account to my sister-in-law but nothing else. My husband and I have not talked with them yet but plan to tell them to limit their contact to mail correspondence or we will have to take action via our attorney. I do believe FIA Card Services is connected w/ BofA somehow, but I DO NOT believe the people making these calls are representing BofA in the handling of my mother-in-law's account.

I have been receiving calls from Estate Recovery 443/615-7400 BOA. My mothers passed away in this year and left a credit card debt. There is no money of hers to pay this debt, I informed them of this and they still keep calling and calling. Now I have learned that they are now harassing my brother about the debt. WHat are my options here?

UPDATE: BOA FBI FCC FTC are reporting that scammers are spoofing (falsely showing number/name) this phone number & name (Card Services) in an attempt to get you to provide your information. The official stance by all three is: BOA will NEVER call you and ask for your information. They already have it. You are not to provide ANY information, if asked for it, and to immediately end the call then report the incident to BOA (1-800-432-1000), FBI (http://www.fbi.gov/contact/fo/fo.htm), the FCC (1-888-863-2244) & The FTC (1-877-438-4338).

I received a message from BOA stating potential fraudulent activity on my business card. They asked that I call back on 877-451-4602. Instead, I called the Customer Service number listed on the back of the BOA card, and there was fraudulent activity on my card. They immediately closed that account number, told me to cut the card, and they will reissue a new card with a new number. I did not have to give out deep information to confirm my identity to them as I was calling from my home phone (they read the callerID too). I did not have to give them the full card number or even all or "last-four" of my SSN. They did ask for the "last-four' of the card, prior month payment amount, mailng address, and street name of former address (not street number) just to confirm that I was the payer of the account. IN MY CASE, THIS WAS A LEGITIMATE CALL FROM BOA. I would advise those getting similar calls to only call the number listed on the back of the card or listed on your statement. Do not rely on the CallerID display as it can be faked.

This was a call-back number left on my answering machine claiming to be Bank of America calling about suspected fraudulent activity on my BOA business card. I did not call this number, but instead called the number on back of the card and confirmed that BOA did have fraudulent activity on my card and was trying to contact me. CallerID showed Newark, DE 302-458-1590. I would always recommend calling the number on the card.

Be Warned: This is a phishing call. I have contacted BOA and confirmed that these calls are NOT from them or any party on their behalf. The fraud department of BOA has be tracking these call and so is the FCC & the FBI. I was instructed by BOA to report the calls and detail to both FCC & FBI...which I have. I suggest you guys do the same. We need to help catch the thieves. The clue that is present in all phishing call: they ask you to confirm/give information. If BOA (or any other institution) calls YOU they will NOT ask for your info...they should already have it and not need to confirm anything. This is what all 3 (BOA, FCC, FBI) places as told me.

This is certainly NOT legit. I called Bank of America after I hung up the phone and they said that the phone number did not belong to Bank of America nor would Bank of America make a call like that. They said it sounded like a phishing call and they reported it to the Fraud Dept. ALSO, they would not give me a phone number for the fraud dept so anyone who says that they were given a number has really been doubly duped.

It is legit. It seems a bite sketchy because the number that shows up on your phone is not one that you can reach somebody. But when I called the number that was on the back of my card and spoke with a represenative from Bank of America she did verify that they do make calls to verify recent activity on my card (I didn't bother calling 1-800-441-7048 because I figured if it was a scam I would just be giving them more information about me and my account!) She also verified information that was logged on my account that I had confirmed and the name of the man that I spoke with who had made the notation. She told me that she understood why people would feel uncomfortable with such a call and if at any time you are not comfortable that you can hang up and call the number on your card and pursue the issue from there and they would be happy to help.

I think truthseeker_86 gave one of the best answer \ This number left no message at 11 am

I called again and got someone else who asked the same questions, gave the same responses, then transferred me to a local BofA even though I said I banked with huntington. Something didn't seem right so I called huntington, and was told huntington would never ask for my card #, and that my credit card was not on my account yet (hadn't been approved yet) and that there was no suspicious activity whatsoever on my debit card account. my card was canceled and I'm being sent a new one. feel stupid for falling for this, but that is why I'm telling you, this is not legit! The person I spoke to at my bank said I'd be calling a call directly from my bank if there was fraudulent activity, not the supposed "card services" from delaware that called me.

When these folx called, the lady identified herself-gave me a number to call or said to call the number on the back of my BOA card, which I did. It was regarding some questionable charges on my account-they weren't mine. They cancelled my current account and will be sending a fraud report to fill out and a new card. From what I can tell it is all ok. My suggestion is to call the number on the back of the credit card to make sure it is legit.

I have read some other comments and my thinking is that the original caller is from a "credit card services" department and handle all types of legal matters regarding credit cards-not just fraud.

I just received a call from 302-458-1590 with caller identifying herself as working for Bank of America's fraud department which was contacting me to check whether I had indeed been the one who recently accessed my online banking account from or through a location in Germany. Other than my name, she asked for no other personal identification details but conveyed legitimacy nevertheless as she correctly confirmed the credit cards and valid online sessions linked to my now apparently compromised online account, reporting that no new charges had been posted and that my current cards would be cancelled and replaced with new ones. She also provided callback numbers for fraud and victim assistance units, neither of which identifies itself as a Bank of America department in recorded greetings.

B of A bought a number of credit card companies including MBNA, so even if you never signed up for a B of A card, you may have one. If you get a call from this 800 number (or 302-458-1590 as the caller ID will show), follow up on it. I called the number on the back of my card which then transferred me to this "Card Services Security Center" and found out that in fact there were about $600 in fraudulent charges made the day before.

Received a call from this number, wasn't sure who it was so I googled it real fast before answering. It was BofA Fraud department saying someone tried accessing my account via phone but could not verify the security info. The rep did not request any information from me, he stated me name and asked if that was me, stated my address and asked if that was correct, stated the last four of my CC # and asked if that was correct and asked if xx charge on xx date was the last charge I made on my account. Said he would cancel the card and issue a new one with a new acct #. Checked BofA online and my CC account has been changed so it was legit. I'm very thankful they check on this, it could have been a much worse situation.

This is not any fraud detection, credit card charges are approved by your card and you are not responsible for charges or fraud on your account. This is BOA collections, they may have an "aggressive legal team" as someone noted below but they are a bunch of fools. They have called me after I just filed bankrupcey and have been assigned a case number. This is a violation of collection laws. My lawer has me recording the times and calls from my answering machine and is preparing a case against them. The law is on your side, don't let these fools disturb your day !!

Received a letter from FIA Card Services, signed by Chris Mokris, and called the number on the letter. I spoke to Paulet about my recently departed Mother's Visa card through Bank of America. She tried to get me to pay a reduced lump sum on the account. I explained that I was told by B-A that the card was covered under Mom's insurance and would have to call her back.

The next day, I received 2 calls from this number and was instructed to call Angela with Bank of America's Estate Unit at 1-866-279-8593 about my Mother's acount. I called her back and explained that the credit card account was covered by her insurance when she passed. Angela was very rude and with a loud voice told me that I needed to pay the entire bill or at least pay her $60.00 bucks and send her a copy of the death certificate. Very nasty person and I wish I had recorded the call.

These people have been calling me, reached my mom and told her I have fraudulent activity on my account. She gives them my husband's cell, and we miss the call. I called them back and was given the number 1-800-441-7048. I called, and the first person told me she needed my card number. I didn't realize this was a fraud call, thought it was huntington bank, and I gave her the number. I explained that I was still waiting to be approved for my CC application (though I questioned if the card was sent out in the mail and got in the wrong hands). She said with any card # I had from the bank they could access my account info and find out where the fraudulent activity was. I gave her the debit card I just received, told her it wasn't activated yet, and she said that they couldn't view my info because it was a debit card, and they were from the "customer satisfaction department". She said she'd transfer me to the correct department, and then phone call appeared to have been dropped.

I received many calls from this number; the last on 9/19 when they finally left two back-to-back messages. When I returned their call, I was asked to supply them with my credit card number. I refused. I told the woman, (and her name was Tanya, also) that she should be able to trace me by my name and phone # and that I had no way of knowing if they were legit. Since it was a question about a charge, she could supply the name of the merchant and I could verify it. She said that she could not help me unless I supply her with the card #.
I finally went to the Bank of America web site to see if this number was listed. When I could not find this number, I contacted customer service to report what had happen. I was transferred to the fraud department where they told me that there was a question about a charge. It doesn't matter. When companies like this tell you to never share information like this to an unsolicited phone call or email, it's strange that they would then ask you to do so.

This is Bank of America collections. I thought this call and one I received 4 business days ago (I called them back and spoke to them) were part of a phishing scheme, so I got my Quickbooks MC statement. I have made 4 payments to them on a payment program that they suggested as being acceptable to them. They are direct withdrawals, and as I was suspicious, I wasn't angry or had a raised voice. When I called to ask if my payments were actually going to BoA, I was lectured, actually "read the riot act" by their customer service employee Nolan who was rude, raised his voice and was very intimidating. They apparently have a spiel that they read to people who are on a payment plan about how you are in past due status and that they can continue calling you until 6 regular payments have been made (uh, that's not in the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) because he said twice to me. I told him the calls were to stop. He said they could continue calling; I said OK, do I have to call my attorney general's office? He said they could keep calling, actually twice. So tonight I am sending a letter to the Consumer Division of my state's Department of Justice. If this happens to you, Google your state's attorney general or Dept. of Justice Consumer Division and report them. Bank of America is way outside of federal law (FDCPA).

This number is from Bank of America Fraud Protection. They left a message asking for me to call them back. I called the number and they only asked for my name, credit card number, address and e-mail. I had made a purchase overseas in Argentina and they were calling to veryfy that this was a legitimate transaction. They did not ask for my SS# nor would I have given it to anyone initiating a call. They listed the transaction vendor and amount and I said that the charge is valid.
I suppose some people get a call from this number if someone (a thief) has been trying to open an account in their name. Bank of america seems to be doing a good job at deterring ID theft. If you don't have a Bank of America card and you get this call watch out. Someone just tried to open an account in your name and Bank of America caught it. This is a legitimate number. As always never give out SS# to anyone who calls you unless you initiate the call to a number you know.

Don't trust email's that tell you to click on a link to a bank's supposed website either. There are a lot of bogus websites out there that look exactly like the real ones. The real clue is in the URL. If it looks suspicious, leave it immediately! I'm a web designer and believe me... it's very easy to make a fake website to gather personal information, especially from those not adept in using the web.

Not a legit number. Why did they call me when I have NEVER had a credit card other than my debit card with HSBC? This is a plain and simple phishing scam! BEWARE! When in doubt, ONLY call the number on the back of your card. Do not call any other number. That's the only way to be sure you're not being scammed. Those scammers are getting trickier every day, but if you're smart about it, they won't get you.

Appeared to be a legal call reporting an illegal attempt to use my credit card for LLBEAN, requested no account or SSN info and was sent a legit new card, followed up with call to number listed on bill to reassure myself. Unfortunately, it was true

This is actually the fraud department for a credit card company. They are calling because something that appeared to be fraudulent use of your card triggered them to lock up your card until they talked to you to verify the use was legit. These are the good guys. I however suggest that you call back using the number on the back of your credit card to be sure you are not being spoofed with the MBNA number.

This is legit. Next time they call call them back and when they are trying to look up your account give them your first and last name and your zip code and that way they can look up your account w/o having to ask for your social...anyone can find your name and zip (like from a phone book!) so you wouldn't be giving out personal information!!

called @9:09 am. Repeatley told these people the person that they are asking for does not live here. When I asked her name or company name she said "does that really matter?" I told her that it does because they continue to call which is a violation of FTC. She immediatley avoided answering any question and hung up. I would definitley say that she is trying to collect a debt for Bank of America. Just because someone once lived in your home does not give them the right to harrass you.

called at 5:58am, 8:02am, and then at 8:08am today...left a message saying he was with "card services" and that if I didn't call back by 2pm EDT, they would make a business decision for me. Ridiculous!!!!!!!!!! Does the FTC even do anything with these people?

Found address and name online.

I called back. Got the "no longer in service, call 1.800...." Definitely a scam. I was in Denver recently.

Called MBNA/Bank of America and they said unless I knew the specific department who was calling that they could not take my number out of the database. I am writing to the B of A corp. to hopefully get to the bottom of this. The 302 number was "currently inactive".

This is a probably a "vishing" scam. I received one of these calls for a credit card I do not own (Bank of America). You can read more here:
