Sigh.. same crap, different day. Will not take NO for an answer, will not remove name and number from their calling list. They have also called me from these numbers (notice that they keep changing, hiding their identity. A legit company would not be doing this crap!): 701-625-5003 253-382-9031 503-457-1792 260-969-9387 713-701-5930 503-457-1829 407-377-1080 503-457-1407 425-406-9028 206-496-0929 801-823-3446 360-474-3206 631-482-3381 360-529-6933 609-318-9785 503-457-1773 360-474-3901 417-800-2309 360-529-6807 360-474-3201 206-397-1421 973-273-7820 503-563-0345 704-230-0427 541-257-1290 347-502-2571 603-689-9692 253-382-9923 253-245-2701 849-963-4854 469-251-2025 417-800-2325 767-275-4471 308-210-8578 305-368-8857 312-589-7211 213-788-7627 845-459-3271 469-251-2273 458-201-0364 317-759-7561

Yeah, they keep changing their phone number, too......... knowing that they are breaking the law. Here are a few of the numbers that they call from: 701-625-5003 253-382-9031 503-457-1792 260-969-9387 713-701-5930 503-457-1829 407-377-1080 503-457-1407 425-406-9028 206-496-0929 801-823-3446 360-474-3206 631-482-3381 360-529-6933 609-318-9785 503-457-1773 360-474-3901 417-800-2309 360-529-6807 360-474-3201 206-397-1421 973-273-7820 503-563-0345 704-230-0427 541-257-1290 347-502-2571 603-689-9692 253-382-9923 253-245-2701 849-963-4854 469-251-2025 417-800-2325 767-275-4471 775-410-1104

Same assholes, different day. They changed their phone number again since yesterday, but it is the same damn message... again! They also call from these numbers: 701-625-5003 253-382-9031 503-457-1792 260-969-9387 713-701-5930 503-457-1829 407-377-1080 503-457-1407 425-406-9028 206-496-0929 801-823-3446 360-474-3206 631-482-3381 360-529-6933 609-318-9785 503-457-1773 360-474-3901

People who spout off without the facts are so annoying. Too bad they don't bother to study the past three years of Telemarketing Sales Rule enforcement. Here are but a few recent FTC actions:

.... and oh yeah, here's a scam gang in Atlanta fitted for orange jumpsuits a year ago for running a similar credit reprice scam:

More needs to be done, and new tactics are needed, as cheap VOIP service and number spoofing were not available to phone scammers when the DNC program was established. The FTC is well aware of this, and will be inviting ideas for a technological defense to be aired at the Autumn summit announced last month.

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:

They are so annoying. Too bad there's no enforcement of the no call list.

Same crap, different day. They want all your credit card info so they can "lower your interest rate". What a load of donkey dust. DO NOT give these nefarious assholes any of your credit card or financial info. They are scammers and if I find out where they live, they WILL be shut down.

This caller is subject to US punishment because 503-457-1407 is a mobile phone number from Oregon (Tillamook)
Tillamook County, per WhitePages.com reverse phone look up. The FBI ought to be doing their jobs better!!

If these foreign phone solicitors want to do business with Americans, then they should comply with our laws and be subject to punishment if they break laws.

Credit Card scam artists. I have had hundreds of calls from these scammers, and they will not stop. The FBI refuses to help because they claim the scammers are located outside of the US where they have no power. It's time to propose that Interpol address this very real problem.

I am on the DO NOT CALL registry. Why do they still call? Maybe we need to pass laws with teeth to get them to stop harassing calls. People will get tired of only having weird numbers on their landlines and disconnect them all together. Get it assholes. No more job.
