After the ubiquitous message that this was my last oppportunity to lower credit card rate(s), I pressed 1 to speak to someone. When I got a person, I asked for a supervisor. She politely said something like "please hold" and then the call dropped. This was on my land-line phone. Had a similar call from "Rachael" on my cell a few days ago. Same results.
Does anyone know who this is and how to stop their calls? I'm on DNC for both cell and land-line numbers.
Reference Diane's post below. I decided to answer this time. Same recorded message about credit reduction. This time I pressed 1 for an agent. When he answered I told him to take my number off the list; that I have received at least a dozen of these calls telling me it was my final notice. Then I said, "Well guess what. Today IS my final notice." He responded, "No, it's not, sir." and hung up.
At first I was pissed, but then I realized it WILL be my final call from THEM, but not from the other crooks who use the same scam.
Do not press any buttons nor call them back. Some robo calls are illegal: http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0259-robocalls Robo call said
recvd phone message about "your annual credit card review." Bogus. Called back but message says caller is not set up to receive calls - I'm complaining to FCC
These people know who they're calling. Said they knew I had been making my payments on time and I might qualify for a lower interest rate. I find this scary.
This number has called everyday for three days. Never leaves a message but stays on the line just long enough that the answering machine beeps as if a message was left.
That part make this call even more annoying then the fact that the no call list is not working.
They called on 8-24-2013 at 11:00 a.m. I don't know the number so I did not answer.
these people do not honor the national do not call list.
Did no answer. Call sourced from Iowa or routed through that location.
no message left. we are on The Do Not Call List... which makes no difference. I will block the number.
These people kept CALLING...I keep BLOCKING...They keep changing their number...I keep BLOCKING...Why can't someone put a stop to this crap! I don't know what's worse, the phone scammers or the email scammers!
YEAH = RECORDING says it's from "Cardmember Services". Better description would be SCAM ARTIST Services. Offers to lower interest rates on Credit Card if balance is over $ 3,000.00 Claims to have sent notices, and this will be the LAST (If Only !) Don't Answer / Don't Respond !
