Received robo call from this number, talking about my current credit card accounts, this is my second and final (I wish!) call, as this is related to the goverment stimulus.
I pressed 1 as directed to receive more information, ended up with a fast busy signal.
I then called the number directly. This time got an automated message, press 2 to be removed from the call list. Then got a message that it could take up to 48 hours to take effect.
'This is your final notice...press 2 to be removed from our scam-list, press 3 to decapitate the turdball scammer with piano wire, press 4 to feed the scammer to a wood-chipper Fargo-style...'
Would be so much more satisfying than what I actually did - report these pieces of subhuman excrement for a violation of the DNCL.
SPAM They want to lower your credit card interest rates.

Robo calls like this are driving me crazy.
Like other phone numbers (417.800.2323, 417.800.2301, 603.606.4918), the caller ID for this number shows a bogus company name: Customer Svc. If they expect me to business over the phone, they are sadly mistaken. DO NOT DO BUSINESS OVER THE PHONE with callers who initiate the call. You have no idea who they really are.
Although caller ID shows name as Card Services with phone number 417.800.2301, I think this is related to phone number 417.800.2323, which left a partial message on my voice mail: "... so press 1 now to take advantage of this today." Kind of hard to do when it's on my VM.
Once again, I got a partial recording on my voice mail: "... so press 1 now to take advantage of this today." I believe this number is for CARD SERVICES (aka phone number 417.800.2301). This is a pain because when I get to my voice mail messages, I am hearing a partial message (annoying) from a company I don't do business with. Who is CARD SERVICES anyway? Use your real company name if you want to do business with me!

Still making the FCC look like idiots. This scam has continued for over a year with no arrests or progress in this foreign terrorist attack on our communication system.

More of the same... different number in callerID. Robo-call - yes I'm on dnc list.
Qualcord Credit at 417-800-2301 keeps robo-calling my home phone with the same message. They disregard the "do not call" list.
Note to "Unknown" 2012-11-20 20:47:51 UTC: ...also anyone who doesn't owe any money gets just as many calls from "Card Services", "Account Services", "Cardholder Services", etc. They don't care who they call, they are just using an autodialer; this is illegal, of course, but they are already violating numerous federal and state laws anyway, so they don't care.

Anyone who owes anyone company an amount of money may be subject to this type of call. So if you ever established credit, guess what they will call you. If you answer they will keep calling and refer you to
their partner companies who do the same thing and put you and your credit together. They must be like the
hacker group "Anonymous."
A lot of these calls are coming from a company that partners with Pacific Telecom and buys every single number they have. They get a tiny fee from other phone companies for providing caller ID info which adds up to many thousands every month. Hence they really don't care whether they sell you anything or not, their main goal is to make their info fees from the other phone companies. By using so many different numbers (thousands of them) it reduces the complaints against a given number.
Complain to the FCC, the Department Of Justice and your State Attorney General's office. Pacific Telecom is under investigation as well as the marketing company, but have not been charged or fined yet.
Go to digitone.com-I am not a salesperson for this company but someone who is fed up-This device really works and will blcok the calls-Good Luck!!!!
Places such as Delta Outsource Group (Debt Collector) will Spoof calls from various numbers and do these annoying hangups, dead air, foreign language, fraudulent advertising etc. to agitate the victims. Then they
will call as themselves, for real, and be real polite. The theory behind this is that the people are so
frusterated by the fraudulent and anoying phone calls prior to this, that they are actually pleased to hear a
decent voice on the other end and therefore are victim to giving their personal data more freely to these Debt Collectors.

A scammer gives an ''opt-out'' provision only for the illusion of legitimacy. Just as when one replies in any way to email spam, the first thing any response tells the phone scammer is that yours is a functional phone number which a live person just might respond to again. That is how your phone numbers become commodities, shared with and sold off to other criminals.
Here's a link to a site which helps explain the scope of the problem and why the credit reprice scammers are hard to control:

A robocall from "Rachel from Account Services" says there is no problem 'with your card' but that they have something urgent to talk about. They can offer way to lower interest rate on credit card through federal program. Although they say press 1 to talk to person, or press 2 (or 3 or 5...) to be removed from list ... the removal option DOES NOT appear to work. For 2 weeks I've gotten same call at least 3 times a week. This time I decided to talk ... and as soon as I asked which card they were calling about, who the company was & what the address was, they immediately hung up.
another robo call offering lower interest rates. I don't have a credit card, so who are they calling for? haha
The reason a large portion of the people are having trouble with this number is because this number is being "Spoofed" by Delta Outsource Group, a collection agency located in O'Fallon, MO. They will try and gather enough information to create an account. Many bank accounts have been drained by this establishment and many "Spoofed" phone numbers have been fraudulently used to aquire information.
This not only hurts people by the harrassment, but also hurts the establishment that the number belongs to.
Note: Insight Services is affiliated with Delta Outsource Group.
Your wish has been fulfilled several times, John. These are recent FTC actions:
FTC Action Puts Robocallers Out of the Telemarketing Business
FTC Shuts Down Robocallers Who Claimed to Reduce Credit Card Interest Rates

Here are similar credit reprice scammers in Atlanta who were sent to prison last month:

It's always the same thing with these people. A robocall from "Rachel from Account Services" says there is no problem with your card but that they have something urgent to talk about with me. (A lot of times, I click through just to mess with them). When you get a live person, they're incredibly vague and want to know right off the bat if you owe more than $3000 on a credit card. Same script every time. If at any point they sense you're not going to give them answers...whether it's you asking too many questions, playing stupid, or even coming close to telling them off...they immediately hang up on you.
I really wish some Attorney General somewhere would go after these assholes and hammer them. Any politician who can stop this crap would have my vote.
a scammer, card services
they will not take a call back
called and hung up immediately upon answering - caller id said "card services"
