Solution to Robo-dialing:

After receiving calls from "Credit Services" every day for months now, I did what many of you have done -- I pressed "1" and talked to one of the scammers. You can drag them out for a very long time if you act interested in getting a lower interest. If they ask for personal info (credit card #, etc.) just make stuff up. I figure if they are going to waste my time every day, I can waste theirs. If they call and I don't feel like talking, I press "1" and just leave the phone of the hook to tie up the line for a little while at least.

As far as I can tell, reporting these jerks (and other phone scammers reported at whocalled.us) to the FTC does no good at all. I have checked back a year later to find that the same people are still in operation and still using the same scams. Sure, the numbers change, but the scam remains the same. The FTC is not a law enforcement agency -- it has influence over legitimate businesses that do tele-marketing and can compel them to follow the do-not-call regulations -- but it seems totally useless at tracking down scammers and shutting them down. I've been monitoring the complains on these lists for four years now, and have made my own reports to the FTC, and in no case does it seem to have made any difference at all.

What would help eliminate robo-dialing is federal legislation making it illegal (sorry charities, politicians, and pollsters -- this includes you too), combined with local phone technology that can allow the home owner to selectively block robo-calls by detecting them through stealth answering, followed by a disconnect, before the home owner every hears a ring. How do you know it is a robo-call? I can tell within the first two seconds that a call is a robo-call even before the recorded message starts or a scammer picks up the line. You know the silence that follows your first hello? If I can detect it, intelligent software can detect it and prevent it ever ringing the phone in your home. Occasionally, a real caller may be blocked by mistake, and may have to redial. I can live with that.

Best of all is this solution: the phone company maintains a list of numbers that are "enabled" to ring on your phone. If a call comes in from one of those numbers, your phone rings as usual. If it isn't on the list, a recording is played informing the caller that the number is not enabled, and that to get on the callers list, an email request will need to be sent to an email address indicated in the phone message. The email address is one you maintain for just this purpose, and be prepared to have to delete 95% of its emails from tele-marketers. But if an old friend is trying to reach you whose number isn't enabled because you lost track of him/her, they can request to have it enabled, and then the call can go through.

This gives you 100% control over who can call you, without preventing legitimate people from reaching you if they need to. BTW -- note that if your insurance company or bank (who may be on the enabled list for obvious reasons) sells your phone number to a tele-marketer, it won't matter it all. If you have this kind of call blocking established, your phone number is worthless as information. So it may well start to disappear from such lists.

you MUST call the FTC and report all these numbers as fraud. This is credit card fraud, they want your credit card number. I had them on the phone for 25 minutes and got them irate. They use computers to call and they need to be traced by law enforcement. Also call your phone company and have them trace the IP address. "Do not call" list doesnt work in this case
other related numbers are 904-259-4351, 239-482-3803,305-623-4459

FTC number is 877-382-4357

They call themselves "credit services". They are a financial company (or so called financial company) located in Florida. They claim that they can save you thousands of dollars on your credit cards. At a particularly vulnerable time (plus, in my defense...I was under the influence of prescribed pain medication...) I actually fell for it and actually gave these folks my credit card numbers. I know...I know. STUPID! I do have to say that they have not charged anything to my cards and I haven't had any suspicious charges at all. However, all these ppl do is call your credit card company and negotiate on your behalf for a lower rate. And you have to pay them $900 for them to do nothing more than you can do yourself! They gloss over the fee and try to say that you don't have to pay it. You do! I came to my senses and spoke with a supervisor and canceled. He tried to tell me that I had agreed to a contract & had to pay. There was no contract! I'm not the primary card holder and they didn't tell me about the fee upfront. It took time and threats, but they finally relented. Anyway, don't be stupid like me. Anyone can call their credit card company and negotiate for themselves. YOU can ask for a lower rate. They will negotiate to keep customers. Luckily, a bit of time...and a bit of dignity....is all I lost.

9.30.08-- Christopher Jones called from 678-741-5400 (DM Associates) and also from a junk number: 062-286-7741. Though Christopher was nice and professional, we believe them to be a scam and did not provide them w/ the requested information of our credit card number. They said they needed that information to confirm that we pay our bills on time, and to verify that we are in good standing so that they could extend a 8.9% rate to all of our credit cards...Christopher said that he was from a company called "Credit Services"

Only got a call from these scammers once at home re: my car warranty, but at my place of work, which is a federal govt building we have been getting calls about car warranties at every phone extension for a couple of months, even phone extensions that have np staff associated with the number. I finally pressed "1" to speak to a representative, informed them we are a federal govt office and have NO car warranties for them to be concerned with, and asked the woman what kind of scam they were running? Response? CLICK.

These people call at least once a day and neither responding to the number 2 removal option or asking to be removed from the call list works.

Police warn of car warranty scam

March 12, 2008
BEACON NEWS STAFF
Police are warning about a potential phone scam involving calls about vehicle warranties.

Police were made aware the phone scam after a resident received an automated call involving an offer to update their warranty.

The resident received the call from (407) 207-0820 and the automated voice instructed them to push 'one' for more information, police said.

A person then answered the phone and asked the Oswego resident for their phone number.

The resident asked which vehicle the caller need warranty information about, police said. The resident was told their car was in declined status and the call disconnected.

Further investigation determined that calls from this number have been made throughout the United States, police said. Most calls referenced an offer to lower credit card rates. Police believe this scam originates from a foreign country.

Police remind residents to be careful in situations where personal information is being requested and always report suspicious activity.

 Mar 17th, 2008
I'm on the do not call list! These people are rude when you ask them what company they represent or how they got your information. They ask if you have debt on cards larger than $4500. But no one can guarantee lowering your interest rates because that kind of information is based on your credit. 'Roger' had a thick middle eastern accent and there was no way in hell I was going to give anyone my credit card information over the phone! Watch out! Best to enroll in a debt management program with your bank in person than to give information over the phone to someone from a company that will not let its employees tell who it is that is calling you or hang up on you as soon as you start asking questions. If it sounds too good to be true...it's not! Talk to your bank first before giving into debt management programs from unsolicited companies. I'm reporting these clowns to my bank. Let them investigate for you.

I just got a recorded message about my car warranty that just expired. It told me to choose option 1 to speak with a live person. I chose the option to speak with a rep and a man named James came on and again told me that my car warranty expired. I told him that was impossible becauseI have the higher extended plan and he said no that is just probably on the powertrain. He asked me "whats the year and make of the car again?" very rapidly. Like a fool I told him. He asked if I would like to renew it and I just told him to send me out lititure and I will look it over. He did not ask for my address he said don't worry about it we got it. Then he quickly hung up.

It seems to me that we have an unconsidered response to these phishers. I think the most satisfying thing to do would be to scam them right back. They want to waste our time trying to steal our money? Why not try to steal their time for our amusement.

Once you know what seeing the number represents, the thing to do is make a game of keeping them on the line as long as possible talking about the things it amuses you to talk about. Things like falling in love with their voice and asking them to meet you in some seedy Orlando bar, telling them stories of first credit card and how it had four numbers (make these up) in common with the license plate of your girlfriend's first car, or that your an ear, nose and throat doctor and it sounds like they need a visit. See how many times you can make them explain what they want from you. Make fun of their voice, grooming habits and family lineage.

Then laugh like a maniac and hang up.

Oh, and look forward to their next call.

They called saying I hadn't responded to their multiple requests to contact me about renewing my auto insurance policy (via an automated message). I pressed 1 to speak to a "live agent" and told him that I don't even own a car. He told me that it would be worth their time to talk to me if I ever got one and hung up.

I called back and the message says the number is not in service. I filed a complaint on the FCC do not call website and strongly encourage everyone to do the same. If they receive a large number of complaints they may make some effort to track these people down.

Warranty Service Center: asking about year and model of Car/Truck. Offering extended warranty on car. When asked what company, he answered "we're the administrators for BMW dealers across the US and Canada" When asked why I should do business with them and not BMW directly, he said BMW gets commissions on warranties and by using him I would be cutting out the middle man. Then I asked him for his website, he repeated my car make and model and gave me the site: www.royaladministration.com

When asked what his name was, he said Harvey.

Hope this helps people out there. Considering im on the do not call list these guys are doing dirty business.

Call your phone company and tell them you believe they are terrorists or an international ID theft ring. Tell them you want a criminal investigation started and give them the phone number. Explain you are on the DO NOT CALL list, they keep calling and are rude and will not give info to you. They will give you the annoyance area 1-800-348-8727. You can also call your police and FBI tell them you believe these are international id scam artists. Finally you can do a *57 which will trace that number and give you the option of providing it to law enforcement if your are willing to act as a witness to their attempt to scam you. Personally I say call the FBI and Police, see if your tax dollars do anything but go to the politicians. Ask the phone company if they are willing to tap your phone why not shut these guys down.

bullsh*t recording offering to extend my vehicle's warranty. i spoke to a live person who asked for the VIN. After I feigned innocence and asked how much time was left on my warranty, there was a pause and then the caller hung up on me. Chikote

The call on 3/12 at 2:16pm was a recorded msg. for a Warranty Activation Center (of which I have no warranty to extend on my vehicle) so I chose the option to be removed by pressing "2". The call on 3/14 was a recorded message to reduce my CC interest rate (I don't carry any balances) and I again used the option to press "2" to be removed. I didn't realize that the call on 3/14 was from the same number until I compared it once I hung up. I guess that pressing "2" does absolutely nothing but confirm that someone answered the phone.

Received a call from this number. My caller ID said Unknown Name, I answered the call and they wanted to know if I would like my credit card interest reduced, to press 1, if I was not interested to press 2, which I did, then a voice came on and said my number had been taken off their list. They didn't identify which credit card company they were representing. I would not have given them any information if they had ask for any.

I am in Chicago. Caller ID said "Orlando, FL". Received calls 3/13/08 (no one home then) and 3/14/08. Picked up on 3/14/08 and the automated pitch said they had an important message about my credit card. Then I got the instruction to press 1 if I wanted to lower my interest rate. I did press 1 to see if I could find out who this was, but I just got disconnected. I called the number back and first got a message that all lines were busy. I called again and got a message saying that this number was diconnected. I have read that people can spoof caller ID numbers now, so this was probably a phishing call.

Two calls within an hour offering to lower my interest rates on my credit cards. Pressing 2 to advise them I'm not interested in receiving further calls does not stop them. They have been calling on and off for the past few years.

They've called twice today, so far. First time I hung up on them. Second time I pressed 1 to talk to a rep and after listening to some annoying music they hung up without me ever talking to anyone! Why do they do this? I did a little research and found this information-----the number belongs to:
Peter Tang 4684 BUTTERBOUGH AVE ORLANDO, FL 32801 (407) 207-0820
Don't know that it is of any use though.

Some sort of "car warranty" scam. Claims to be in Atlanta. I said I'm not interested in dealing with a company that far away. When asked if they have a California office, the phonedroid sayd "We might." I hung up.

Call related to credit card intrest and lowering the same. to stay on the line and press 1 to talk to an operator. Hung up, same as a call a few weeks ago from the Fort Lauderdale, Florida Area. This is the same scam, just moving up the coast towards GA.

Anybody live in this part of Flordia and is willing to go and pay this person a visit and find out why the company he owns or works for is committing crimes?

Message said I could reduce my credit card rate but time was running out, press "1" to speak with a representative.
Since my phone number is unlisted, I pressed "1" and spoke with a real person. The person said that they could reduce my rate on my credit card. They gave me a name of the person they were dialing. I asked why they called my number and I didn't have a creadit card. They thanked me and hung up before I could ask that my number be taken off their list.

When I answered the call, the recording said that it was a service to get lower interest rates. I pressed "1" to speak to a live agent, since I wanted to ask the company not to call again, as I am on the "DO NOT CALL" list. I asked the agent the name of the company. He said "Account Services". I asked him for a phone number where the company could be reached, he then hung up!

Another call from recorded voice ("Heather") About my Credit card ("There is nothing wrong, we just need you to contact us asap for a lower interest rate"...Right!!)We seem to get these calls about twice a month.This one had a caller ID of Orlando FL., but I believe I have gotten the exact same call/recorded voice from Heather in NY....she sure gets around....

Glenda, you can block these calls if you have call block option with your telephone company. I did this after I vented on my previous note, and the the option does work. I am with AT&T and you choose *60 and it walks you through.

got another call today, this time it was an automated call from Heather wanting me to reduce my credit rate, I pressed one, and a man said you pressed one because you want to reduce your rate, I told him I pressed one to have them take me off of there calling list, I am on the do not call list and yesterday received a sexual reference call from their co. He said as of Jan 2008, am I aware I need to pay for the do not call program. I advised him this is a free government program, and he again said we now have to pay for it. I told him I know my rights, and they need to remove me or I will take action. If he wont do it, then he could get me a supervisor. The jerk hung up on me! Not suprising but I am irratated, and it is nice we can vent our frustations here, and know we are not alone, now lets get them to STOP! I filed a complaint on the do not call site. I will continue to do so with every call I receive. (thanks for listening!)

They called every other week. I called the number back and get a disconnect call recording. How do we stop them from calling again? They will not stop. I always missed their call and end up I getting it on my voicemail. Laws need to be added to stop this type of conduct. I safely can say they are up to no good.

Can these type numbers be blocked from your phone? I haven't checked that out yet, but will do that today. it is maddening and we get more and more of this type call from all different phone numbers. Most everything I have read from the 105 comments on this website so far has happened to us as well. It is becoming very scary wondering what else they can do to harrass us and we have no defense.

I recieved a call from this number on 3-12-08. My caller ID said Orlando, FL. I answered out of curiosity. A recorded message said "This is a call regarding your credit card.......". I hung up before the message got any further. After I Googled this number and read various comments at different websites I have come to the conclusion that this is a scam. These people are using caller id spoofing. If you don't know what this is I'll tell you. There are websites that you can go to where for a fee of $10 a month they will change the number that shows up on a person's caller id to any number you want. I even found one website that let you make three calls a day for free as long as the call didn't last more than 60 seconds. I used their free service to get someone to answer the phone that owed me money. To me the service was helpful and I was not trying to scam or rip anyone off. Can't say the same for this company that has been calling everyone.

Automated message about a limited time offer to reduce my credit card interest rate. At the end of the message you could press 1 to talk to a live person or press 2 to be removed from their calling list. I pressed one. A guy by the name of Robin answered. He asked if I had pressed 1 to lower my interest rate. I stopped him and told him my number was on the national do-not-call list, that they weren't supposed to be calling, wished him a nice day, and told him that I was in the process of filing a complaint with the FTC.

I get these calls all the time from Card Services telling me I can lower my interest rates! I don't even have any credit cards! Why can't the authorities do somethign about this operation-it's sooo annoying that they call constantly and I am on the Do Not Call List. I have reported the number to them several times and nothing ever comes of it!
