I received a call and unfortunately I picked it up. It was an automated credit card message about you must call them to lower your credit card interest, last chance... etc., etc. I pressed option two (2) as stated to take my phone off their list. A Dweebie man answered and I told him I was on the DO NOT CALL LIST.. He hung up on me!
The phone companies need to revise their methods of letting these outfits that do not abide by certain requests and laws to disconnect them!
phishiung scam. don't give them any info!!! report them to the national do not call registry!!!

"Rachel" and her best pal "Heather" are the two most famous fictional call center reps in history. This spring the FTC froze the assets of three firms running this scam: AMS, PDMI, and Rapid Reduction. They all made pretty much identical calls fronting as "Card Services" or "Financial Services" and soundalikes, using these faux female identities to vaguely promise lower credit rates. From the FTC press release, anyone biting the hook and sending these bums hundreds of dollars for "services" found later that "... the defendants sent consumers instructions to pay down their credit card debts early, thus saving money on interest."
I remember my parents and friends getting these calls from Clearwater FL, and as soon as that sham went public similar calls came from other parts of the country. It appears from the volume of similar complaints I'm reading this summer that the FTC could do some more whacking with its mole mallet.
To be fair, there are so-called credit consolidators that will negotiate better rates on a customer's behalf. They are legal, but deceptive all the same. A consolidator collects a percentage of whatever savings are yielded, for doing nothing different from what an account holder can do for herself by contacting the creditor herself by phone or mail.
The Heathers and Rachels are pulling something far more devious, selling what are possibly the nation's most costly tip sheets of common knowledge. That's assuming they don't go further to drill for personal details and commit identity theft. Please be cautious with these phantom women when they call.

Got a weird call from heather telling mme I can get my credit card interest rate lowered, and to hold, the some scammer dude, who knew my name tried to engage me in conversation about my credit card, but I could hardly hear him from all the background music, he hung up after confirming my name
I will file an FTC complaint online. It's a very easy thing to do.

Company attempted to reach me as posing as my credit card company. They began phishing for my personal information but refused to disclose their address. The call got dropped when I asked for more information.
called once from this number but also called on 8/24/10 from 406-351-4131
sales call with a 'touch 1' reverse call setup to a sales agent for 'credit card servies'
Received a call from this number on 08/26/10. Didn't answe it. As if I know anybody in Montana. Right.

same ole storyphishing scammers
they just hang up when I answer. annoying
These people call all the time. Their spiel "we're calling about your credit card accounts" and "currently there's no problem with your accounts" have great potential for scaring the unwary. Hang up immediately, places like this should be outlawed. Too bad people can't block specific calls, like this one!
This number called two times in a row. First call displayed as "out of area". Second call displayed as INTERNATIONAL
Hung up as soon as answering machine picked up
Recorded message about lowering credit card interest rate.
