They said I had a problem with my credit card numbers being used. I gave them my card numbers and the three number code on the back and they said they will investigate and let me know. I'm worried if someone is using my cards because I am in bad shape right now financially. Hope all is okay!!

Received call from this number on 7/19/10 on my TracFone. Msg said there is no problem with my account. So why call? Been getting these calls every other week or so for the past 1.5 to 2 years, but this is the first time I've been able to determine the originating phone number. Each call sucks up several 30-cent minutes on my TracFone.

I don't know anyone in AZ so I ignored the call. About 90 mins later another call came across as "unavailable" but I suspect it was from the same company. I find this very strange considering I just spoke with a financial counselor in a supposed "confidential" session today.......

Received a call from the number. I pressed 1 to speak with an operator.

He told me that he was from Experian the Credit Reporting Agency and that because of my good credit standing they can lower my interest on my credit accounts.

I asked what was the catch. Blah, blah, blah... They asked me for the amount of credit card debt that I had and I told them that I would answer their questions when they told me all about what they are offering, cost, commitments, etc...

He hung up.

I have a doubt that they are from the "real" Experian company.

Didn't answer, presume its a scam.

I just got a call from this number on my cellular phone. I didn't answer but this must be some sort of scam since there are lots of reports of people receiving calls from this number. Very annoying that they're using my minutes :o(

I got a call from this number on 7/19/10 around 8pm on a TracPhone I recently bought. I didn't answer because I don't keep the phone with me at night. In fact, I only purchased the phone back in May for a temporary part-time job and the number has not been given out to anyone but the people I am working with. Once I am done at the job I will no longer be using the phone. So, these people (scam artists I suspect) must be running a program to produce random numbers to call and see which are true lines and which are not. Don't answer the call if you get it. I am sure it is a scam and they are trying to get your personal and financial info.

Random call at 6pm from an area code in Arizona. I'm in Char. NC and I don't know anyone in Ariz. so I didn't answer it. They didn't leave a message.
Interesting how at least 3 of us all got a call from this number on the same day.

Mine was a call from "Cardholder Services" saying I could lower my credit card rates if I pressed 1 NOW! I hung up before they could get any farther.
