Caller was very rude and kept asking private information about my Father. Then when i called them back after he hung up on me the same person answered the phone and when i asked to speak to his boss a woman got on and continued to try to get me to agree about a free trip and the guy was in the background telling her to hang up. These two were trying to sell a "free" trip! when i called this number the first time after the guy hung up (1-402-982-0626) i was redirected to this number (1-877-318-3107) Middle of the night and they got rude cause i was aggeravated about the questions they were asking. Like are your parents divorced and when i asked why he was calling he wanted to know if the my father was dead or on vacation or shopping or coming home sooon and the questions one right after another without stopping to breath just about when i got mad enough to ask what the hell he wanted he got loud and rude and told me it was none of my business but he called my phone figure that out! Who are these people and how do we stop them!

Numerous calls on my cell phone, from this number, which uses up my minutes. I do not appreciate this intrusion. I am on the DNC list but that seems to be a "feel good" program that does nothing to slow down these tele-marketing calls.

I just received the same call as well. I'm filing a complaint with the Texas Attorney General. What disturbs me is that the "representative" said they got my number from Experian. This is what they said:

"Hello, this is _________ at Card Services, and we're calling in reference to your current credit card accounts. There is no problem currently with your accounts. It is urgent, however, that you contact us concerning your eligibility for lowering your interest rates to as little as 6.9 percent. Your eligibility expires shortly so please consider this your final notice. Please press one now on your phone to speak with a live operator and lower your interest rates. Or press two to discontinue further notices. Thank you and have a great day."

They phoned with a computer-generated message offering interest rate reductions on credit cards to 6.9%. The call appears to be originated out of Arizona 480-684-0618. When I started asking questions about how they got my private information (purportedly from Experian) and what was the name of their company ("Card Services"), they hung up on me. Attempts to re-dial the number result in a rapid busy sound. Beware! Sounds like a scam to me - and I will be reporting it accordingly. Beware.

GOT A SUGGESTION....
CALL THE "FRENCH LANGUAGES POLICE"...IF YOU RESIDE IN QUEBEC...
CRTC CAN'T TOUCH THEM, CAUSE THE CALL IS FROM U.S.
RCMP CAN'T TOUCH THEM, CAUSE THEY ARE NOT DOING ANY PHYSICALLY HARM ON YOU.
BUT IF YOU LIVE IN QUEBEC, THEY ARE DEAD....
"FRENCH LANGUAGES POLICE" WILL HUNT THEM DOWN....CAUSE THEY ARE DOING SALES PITCH IN ENGLISH.
ALSO, CALL "CANADA REVENUE AGENCY", THEY DON'T HAVE A GST REGISTRATION TO DO BUSINESS IN CANADA.

Another call from "Erica at Credit Card Services" with an offer to lower my credit card interest rates. She has a much more pleasant voice than Kami or Rachel. ;-)

Having said that, these calls are still very annoying. As others have mentioned, pressing "2" to be removed from their calling database does nothing, and pressing "1" to complain to a live agent usually results in abuse. As a result, I'm now blocking these calls. It's apparent that neither the Canadian or U.S. DNC registries are able to touch these vermin.

Very abusive telemarketer - they have called numerous times in the last couple of weeks, and each time I have selected "2" to have my number removed from the list. This time I pressed "1" to emphasize that I would like to remove my number. When I pressed "1" I got a man who asked if I had pressed "1" to hear about how to lower my interest rates. I said "yes", and then I said that I had pressed "2" previously and could they please remove my name from their list. He then launched into a verbal attack, stating that I had just "lied" to him and that I hadn't pressed 1 to try to lower my interest rate. He totally attacked me! He called me a few choice names, called me a liar a couple more times and when I finally blew up and told him he was being an asshole, he slammed the phone down. How is it at all acceptable that these companies can continue to call me in my own home and I can't do a thing about it. When I try to civilly ask once again to be removed, I get yelled at and attacked??? This is not right! Who can I report this to?

It was a scammer trying to get credit card numbers. Said it was "Heather" from "Account Services" and that I could press "1" to lower my interest rates. I pressed "1". A female voice came on and verified that it was "Account Services" and that they "work for Visa and MasterCard". I asked them for their address and they immediately hung up the phone. It was very obvious from the start that this is a scam. I find it hard to imagine that anyone would fall for this, but I guess that there must be enough really stupid people out there. They probably only need a 0.1% response rate in order to steal a lot of money.

The caller leaves a message stating, "There is no problem with your credit card at this time, but call us IMMEDIATELY to negotiate a lower rate.".
My caller ID has reported this call with the same identical message and the same voice from various phone numbers with area codes in Nebraska, Maine, Florida and a few others that I cannot recall.
Reporting them to the Do Not Call Registry will accomplish nothing because they simply resurface with another number from another location.
These parasites are the lowest form of life on the planet, just sucking up oxygen that decent people could be breathing.
The solution is simple enough. If you don't recognize the number on your caller ID, don't answer. They don't deserve one second of your time.

I received my first call from these people today. I wasn't home at the time so they left a message. Thought it was odd to be offering 6.9% interest rate on my credit card so I had to look this number up. Glad I did. I have more than one credit card and there are three adults living in my home. They never asked for a specific person nor did they mention which credit card or leave an 800 number for me to call them back if I was interested in accepting the offer????????

Caller ID: Card Services/402-982-0771
Company: "Account Services"
Date: 07/21/09 9:32 a.m. CDT

I answered intentionally.

Got a spiel from Account Services calling me about my credit card, about final notice of eligibility for a 6.9% credit card rate.

NOTE: Given my recent Chapter 7 bankruptcy I do *not* have a single credit card and there is no way I would be offered a low rate, if I had one!

I specifically selected "1" to get a live person.

The young female indicated that (she or her firm?) represented Visa, Mastercard, ... I interrupted to ask her what the name of the company was that paid her. She started to say Visa, Mastercard again and I indicated that she was lying, that those are two separate companies.

I again asked for the name of her company, because my number was on the Do Not Call list and the call was fraudulent, so I would be reporting the call to the authorities.

She quickly hung up.

So, since the "authorities" don't seem to care, I am reporting my information to the consumers.

To get a low rate on a credit card, all personal information would be required. Are these phone calls PHISHING for identity theft?

BEWARE!

The problem is, once you press the number to put yourself on their "Do Not Call List," they just block the number when they call, so that the caller ID shows "Unavailable."

This is a criminal organization stealing credit card numbers through various forms of trickery... lowering interest rates, extending your auto warranty, etc.

Since I know they're criminals, I have no problem hitting "1" and then telling the live operator to go fuck him or herself before hanging up. I'm sure you all can think of even better ways to let out your frustrations on them. However, keep in mind that being nice and politely asking them to remove you from their list will cause them to cuss you out before they hang up on you.... like I said before... these assholes are hardcore CRIMINALS looking to scam you.

I do not believe the 804-234-9010 phone number is fake or caller-id spoofed since when you dial it, you'll get prompted to remove yourself from the list. Don't do it, they'll call you even more. It seems they recently added a new number today, 402-982-0771, so now I'm getting similar calls from both.

I report EVERY single one of these ILLEGAL calls to both of these websites. Everyone here should do the same and with enough complaints, they will get shut down and prosecuted.

Please KEEP REPORTING these calls to your States Attorney General, here is his response to my constant complaints:

"My office is attempting to identify this company and the source of these calls. Often times these sorts of telemarketers block the number or provide false information using specific technology to mask their identity. We will continue to work with the information that we have received and other tools that we have available to identify and stop these calls. We appreciate you taking the time to help us in out efforts".
My advice (timbo) is to keep reporting the name, number, and caller ID to your Attorney General's office. I have reported EVERY call of this nature to DoNotCall.gov and instead, they seem to be increasing. The last time an Indian/Pakistani voice told me he worked for MASTERCARD, and provided me, without asking, a callback number of 1-800-VISA911 (I'm not kidding, VISA911 for MASTERCARD). I informed both VISA and MASTERCARD (I have both), and will continue to file complaints until somebody gets tired of hearing from me and finally does something about these scams.

The above number has called 3 X just today. The last time I hit 1 and spoke to a woman with a spanish based accent. Told her I know this is a scam and to stop calling. Several weeks ago the same scenario except when I spoke to a "live" person, and told her I wanted to be put on the "do not call list" she said, and I quote "you should have said so in the beginning you f--king b--ch." I don't shock too easily so my retort was appropriate to the situation....my grandchildren would be shocked. Have to keep a sense of humor but this is beginning to be invasive to our lives.

We have exactly the same message recorded here in Southern New England which Mister "Disgusted in TX" transcribed, though as usual with these things it began ahead of the recorder. The female sing-song voice is new to us but the tactics are well known. See reports on origination numbers 407-000-9821 and 904-259-4351 for similar stories.

Note the seeded terms "urgent", "eligibility", "expires", and "final notice", meant to create anxiety and possibly fool you into thinking this is official bank business and not a sales pitch. Oh, and how can this be a "final notice", as "Maryland" has noted, if they need to be told explicitly never to call again? Answer: They hope you have a soft gullible head and don't realize you can call a creditor's customer service rep without their dubious "help" and conduct your own rate negotiation.

I'm almost as disgusted with some of the people who post here as with the telemarketers they whine about.

IT IS STUPID TO COMPLAIN, IF YOU'RE NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING USEFUL TO MAKE THE COMPLAINTS EFFECTIVE!!!!!

We're all getting these calls. Big deal. What more of you (I'm already doing it.) need to do is track down the scumbags, post useful information here -- and then file suit. Unfortunately, in this instance, I was not able to press 1, so I'm not able to contribute, either. However -- WHEN (not if) I get information -- I will come back and post an update. I have taken many of these people to court, and have collected tens of thousands of dollars.

YOU can do it, too.

Or, if you don't want to do that, you can actually answer your phone once in a while instead of hiding like cowards (Yes, at times I am cowardly, too.) and talk to the jerks -- act interested -- and get real information about the companies so that folks who are working to actually make a difference can get a hand from you.

Here's the exact message which was left:
"Hello, this is Heather at account services, and we're calling in reference to your current credit card accounts. There is no problem currently with your accounts. It is urgent, however, that you contact us concerning your eligibility for lowering your interest rates to as little as 6.9 percent. Your eligibility expires shortly so please consider this your final notice. Please press one now on your phone to speak with a live operator and lower your interest rates. Or press two to discontinue further notices. Thank you and have a great day."

Message on voicemail for lowering credit card to 6%; press '1' to receive information, press '2' if you don't want to receive any more calls for this or other promotionals; this was my final notice.
Shouldn't have bothered trying to find out anything - a scam is a scam is a scam!
Anyway, when I called the number, pressed '1' got dial tone; called second time, pressed '2' got dial tone. Called 3rd time, pressed '0' got dial tone. This is odd. Nothing produced an answer as to who this call came from, however, upon searching the Net I was able to determined that the number 'supposedly' belong to Citistream Communications, Inc. Could this be part of CitiCorp, aka CitiBank?
I'll be filing a complaint with FCC for fraud via communication device.

Gotta love the illogic. As soon as I saw "Card Services" on Caller-ID, I knew it would be a scam, so I let it go to voicemail. Cheery recorded female voice says it's my "final notice" to lower my interest rate, blah blah blah. Then "Press 1 to speak to a representative, press 2 to stop receiving notices." I already know from experience that pressing 2 does nothing--but why should I need to press 2 anyway if this was my "final notice"? Doesn't that mean I already should receive no further notices, even without pressing 2?

Do what I do when I start getting these calls - I turn off my answering machine during the day when I'm not home. I'm not there to hear it ring and they (and/or the computer!) soon get tired of never getting an answer and move on. In the evening I turn it back on but I NEVER answer the phone when it's a number I don't recognize. They can call me 'til the cows come home, but their call is never getting answered. In the last 5 days I've gotten several calls (from 2 different numbers) with this same scam - lower your credit card rate - which I found out by checking this site which I LOVE. A big THANK YOU to whoever did this site! Not only that, I don't HAVE any credit cards! A big thank you to the inventor of Caller ID as well! ;o)

They want to reduce my interest rates? On what? I don't have any outstanding credit cards out there to lower interest rate. Another scam artist at work. I hope they read these statements. What you people need to do beside threatening them with DNC jargon, is to tell them to see what the public thinks of them on this site of "Who Called us!" They need to see how scummy they really are. Getting calls at 0300 or any O dark thirty in the dark is real low duty here. Don't try to be nice here at this hour.Make them hear what you feel.

"Heather" calling from "Credit Card Services" - This is a credit pirate. They try to convince you to switch your debt burden from a more reputable credit company (if there can be such a thing) to them so they can jack up the APR and charge you for every little thing. No there is nothing you can do about them calling you at 3:30 in the morning. Nobody is paid to enforce federal mandates against it. For that reason, they apparently don't feel bound to adhere to the federal do-not-call list.

When I called the number back, I got an auto-reply. "Thank you for calling back. I you are not interested in receiving future calls regarding our special promotions and would like to be placed on our do-not-call list, please press 1. Please allow up to 72 hours to have your number removed from our preferred marketing list. Thank you and have a nice day." It said this three times and hung up. When I called back again and pressed 1, it said 'Thank you.'

Credit piracy of this sort should be illegal.

Forget the DNCList, use the FCC's page, they have more bite, takes a few minutes and then the assign you a case number, you get the doc in the mail a few weeks later, if you get a few. File a claim in court and make them pay for wasting your time. here is the web site, make sure you use https.

They called and spoke to my 11 year old daughter. She repeatedly stated "My mom's not home"... but they would not shut up. She finally just hung up.

Firm called June 15 @ 13:10 with recorded message to punch 1 to lower cc rate. I did so and a male with possibly Russian or middle wastern accent asked whether I wanted to lower my rate. I told him he was violating Federal law by calling me as I am on the Do Not Call List and that I was going to report him to the FTC. He apologized and stated his firm is having problems with its computer. I then reported the incident to the FTC, which everyone should do...www.ftc.gov It takes 2 minutes and is very easy. After I filed complaint FTC advised it accepted my complaint.

Took a day off to relax and this phone # shows up. I never answer Unknown Name calls and they did not leave a message. I'll also be reporting this to the DNC list.

We are getting their stupid calls about once a month. They deliberately try to sound like your existing credit card has security problems. I was on a call with a friend these jerks called, I put her on hold to see what was going on. Of course it turned out to be this scam and when I told how annoying it is, she she told me what the CID displayed and said she gets harassed by them constantly. She too is on the DCL and has tried countless times simply hitting the "2" to be taken off their list.

If they are being such a nuisance to so many people, how can it be that they are leaving no tracks? And I would think they could not help but leave tracks since they are such scum sucking bottom dwellers.

These guys are on a roll. They called me at 3:50 a.m. I've filed a do-not-call complaint. What other recourse do we have?

This is a follow-up to my previous post. I tried calling that number and was directed to "press 1" if I didn't wish to receive any more "Preferred Marketing" call. For what it's worth.

I got the call at 4:16. With an elderly Mom living alone I automatically assumed the worst when I jumped out of bed. I just got off the phone with the state Dept of Consumer Credit and they say that it's a phishing scam trying to get you to give them your card number.
