I get called from this and other similar numbers at least twice a week. Different area codes, but the same 700-0000 number. So far I have 18 versions of this number blocked.
Calling my cell and leave no message. Can't stand these callers!
Would like to know why we get these robo calls.
The number called and I didnt answer. No message was left so I called it back. First time i got a recording saying my local toll carrier has been changed to NCS and second time it said thank you for choosing AT&T for my local toll provider.
Rang only once (maybe twice) on my cell phone. No voice message left. I think they want you to be curious and call them back.... possibly one of the scams where you are billed for the call you make to them????? I never call these types of numbers back.
Call was to lower credit card interest. Pressed 1 to talk to person. He spoke such bad English I could not understand much, sounded like from Middle East. I asked to be removed. Transferred me to someone else who seemed to think I was going to give credit card info. When I said I was just wasting his time like he was doing to me, he cursed me over and over then hung up.
Got a robo call from this number, pushed 1 to connect to a person to ask 'have my phone number removed from their caller list.' I asked to have my number removed & I also asked how my number was obtained considering I put my number in the no call list. I was told to 'shut up' I was also called a 'bitch' several times. I then asked to speak to his boss (as you can imagine I was not nice at this point) I was told to 'f*** off' then hung up on. I called the number back only to be connected to att long distance robo. As I was googling the number I got anothercall from a different #, but same person was on the line. He suggested that I hung up on him. I informed him that I did not hang up & asked to be transfered to his boss 2 more times (for a total of 5 times between the 2 calls) he hung up on me again. I called the 2nd number that showed up on my caller id got a message saying the number is no longer in service. I want to file a lawsuit against this company & the person who called me a bitch. But I need more information.
I get the lower credit card on my land line and cell. I keep a ref's whistle next to the land line. Once in a while when
I do get a person I tell them I have asked to be removed and finish the sentence with a loud blow on the whistle. It doesn't stop
the calls but it sure is fun thinking of the person with the headset plugged into their ears.
The bad news: Card Services calls aren't going to stop anytime soon.
The good news: You can retaliate, reduce the misery, and even have some fun.
Waste these turkeys' time. Keep them on the line by acting like an interested prospect. Give them bogus data, including a combination of two different credit card numbers, scrambled Social Security digits, and a ZIP Code that's slightly off. Note: providing a credit card company's real 800 number is key to prolonging the call.
After they call the credit card company, you can give them the same credit card info as before with two of the numbers transposed, thus causing them to make a second verification call. Or you can respond, "Guess what ... H-O-O-N-N-K-K [from a $6 air horn] you've been PRANKED! Call back tomorrow for more bullshot." Now they're the butt of your joke rather than you the victim of their harassment.
REDUCE THE MISERY
Landlines. Enroll for the free service at nomorobo.com. Simultaneous ringing, a feature you can enable with many providers, enables nomorobo to receive, answer and, after one ring, hang up on nuisance telephone numbers.
Cell phones. Block the number, an option that becomes available on the iPhone if you click on the "i" on the right in the list of recent calls and scroll to the bottom. Unfortunately, Card Services will keep calling from new spoofed numbers, which eventually should motivate you to retaliate.
Turning the tables on the perpetrators with mischievous deception and the news they've been duped provides instantaneous vigilante satisfaction. Plus you serve your fellow call recipients by slowing down this evil operation's efforts to defraud them.
called my cell, it was a recording about lowering my credit card debt
I'm on do not call list every year. Did not answer. They did not leave voicemail. Got call on 1-28-14. Block the thieves. The 515 is from the Des Moines Iowa area.
Received call from this number about 30 min ago on my cell#... As usual, these PHONE SCAMMERS / SPAMMERS do not leave any message.
What is MCIS...... especially for a cell phone........???????
close them down!!!!!
I won't answer. called back call won't go thru. rip their fingers off!
A recorded message (FINAL MESSAGE TO LOWER MY CREDIT CARD INTEREST). Push 1 to do that. It was the only way to tell them to take my number off their list. They did not speak good English but I told them I was on the no call list and to stop calling. I will report them to the FTC. It is a scam.
This # is noted as belonging to a "Telemarketer."
Its like a customer service company. I was at Sprint a few days ago and was told that someone would call about the service I received. Its probably the same number for all carriers. Its only to question how your recent customer service issues were handled.
A pre-recorded message told me this was a "final notice" and something about the "stimulus" and that I should press 1. I was trasferred to someone with an Indian accent (working in a loud call center, judging from the background noise) told me that my accounts owed more than $4,000 and I could lower my interest rates. This is not true. When I ask him what my name was, since he said he was reading this "on my account", he hung up.
Obviously some kind of scam.

When the call came through I was in a meeting and could not answer, so I tried to call the number back. It rang once and a recorded message said "Thank you for choosing AT&T for your local calling." My cell provider is AT&T, but I'm not sure how this relates to the phone call.
Unsolicited call from unknown scum. No info left.
