Folks, I'll take the time and explain this one more time. These Card Scams originate in Hong Kong. A company located there buys huge blocks of phone numbers from your local phone company; they then package these numbers in lots of 1,000, and resell them in the U.S., where the scammer starts calling you with his scam offers. In this example, I'll use the telephone number that called me, 567-248-4400. After two weeks, that number will be changed, so that your Caller ID will now show 567-248-4401, and two weeks later it will be changed to 4402, or 4439, ot any of the 1,000 numbers that the scammer bought.
The Attorney General can't do anything in 2 short weeks, because the owner is in Hong Kong, so how is he supposed to prosecute?
The phone company can't do anything to do the scammer, because they are only concerned with making money, and selling a huge 1,000 or 3,000 or 10,000 block of numbers is hugely profitable. They can legally only give the original phone number out to law enforcement, and guess what, that number is not being used, because the scammer went to the next number on his list.
Here is what you do, write this down and put it by your phone:
1) Do not answer the phone, IF YOU DO NOT RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER.
2) IF YOU EVER ANSWER THE PHONE FROM A NUMBER YOU DO NOT RECOGNIZE, and there's no one on the other end, that means that a computer is logging exactly what time a human being answered, and they on the other end have no one available. THEY WILL CALL BACK, the next day, or two days later, or next week.
3) WHEN THEY FINALLY HAVE A RECORD OF EXACTLY WHAT TIME A HUMAN BEING ANSWERED, then according to the laws of averages, they will be 95% certain that on a typical weekday, at 2:30 PM, a human being at such and such address, will answer the phone. What to do??
45) IF YOU PICK UP THE PHONE FROM A NUMBER YOU DO NOT RECOGNIZE, D O N O T S A Y HELLO!, Instead, repeatedly hit the pound key, hit it 10 times if you like. This send a signal to the robo-dialer that there is a bad connection, and the robo-dialer will NO LONGER CALL YOUR NUMBER. It's that simple.
I have done this for 15 years, and have never gotten back another call from 4400, 4401, 4402 etc.
I still get those infrequent Credit Card Scams, becuase the phone company is stelling those blocks of 1,000, 0r 3,000 numbers to NEW SCAMMERS! The people in hong kong only need one out of a hundred to accept, and they've had a good day. Period.

D O N O T A N S W E R your phone, if you don't recognize the number.

Your welcome.

Move down toward the bottom of this page to read the comments by "timbo". This is EXCELLENT advice. As more comments are added, his gets pushed further down the page, and will eventually disappear.
PLEASE! If you see that it is only 2 or 3 comments from the bottom, please copy and paste his comments into your comments box. That will preserve it for the next 100 or so people who get this call. If we keep doing this, we can save A LOT of people from getting scammed.

This scammer calls with a warning message that you need to talk to them about the status of your credit cards. They want to sell you a consolidation loan, but refuse to provide any information other than the "fact" that their company name is Visa Card Services. They hang up if you ask for their phone number.

They called with an automated recording and no operator on the line. The recording said they would lower my credit card interest rates. I had to press 9 to get to an operator. Diego, the operator, did give me an address of 3710 Hillcross St, Orlando, FL 37136. However, this is still clearly a scam as they did not have any information or even know what my credit card balances were when calling. Do not give these people any information.

I contacted Congressman Kenny Marchant's office 972.556.0162. The aid knew nothing of this scam. I asked him to look at this website and view the info. He has now sent this to be investigated. I told him the greedy phone companies could stop this if they cared about the honest citizens of the United States. Please call your congessmen from the areas you live and let them know what is going on. I know the state of OHIO cares nothing about the crime from my personal experience. They should not have someone answering the phone that cannot even look up an area code. Please take time to complain about these criminals.

Several credit reprice scammers were in fact dismantled by the FTC in 2010. A mass of complaints with the FTC and attorneys general made that happen. It's not going to be a quick or personal solution, as ''Goddess'' has noted, but making some noise every single time these fiends disturb your peace will in time help everyone.

These people called with a recorded message and nobody on the line (this is illegal), claiming that they would lower my credit card interest rates. I pressed "9" as instructed, and eventually "Mike" came on the line. He refused to provide a company name other than "Card Services" and hung up when I asked a second time. This is definitely a scam. Absolutely no legitimate business would hang up when you asked them to clarify the company name - in fact, they are required to provide the company name, street address (not a P.O. box) and a non-toll-free phone number when asked.

I am so sick of these credit card interest rate phishing schemes. They call all the time (even though I am on the Do Not Call list) from all different numbers. Requests to take my name off their list are routinely ignored. They claim to be calling on behalf of one of my credit card issuers but when questioned which bank or card they are referring to they often get nervous and/or snippy and then ask me to tell THEM which card I want to lower interest rates on. BEWARE! SCAM! DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY PERSONAL INFO!

I didn't believe one word from her. I then started screaming at her and told her to stop harassing me. She said to stop answering the phone and find God. I told her I'd help her find God.

These scammers are now using 568-248-4400 as well, which immediately reveals their dishonesty; area code 568 has not been assigned! Caller ID says Attica OH, but they could be anywhere in the U.S. or even in another country. They have used a software program to fake a number to show up on your caller ID. They try to get you to give them your credit card numbers in order to lower your interest rates, which is something they could not do even if they were legitimate. They want to do one of several things with your information: get cash advances, charge products they can resell, or sell your information to others who will do one of the above. Reporting them to government agencies does no good because the telephone numbers they display are not legitimate. I choose to pray for them. I want them to become Christ followers, confessing their sins, and making restitution for the evils they have done. One participant who becomes a Christian could turn in the whole operation and bring it down for the glory of God.

General Office. I informed her they would not do anything because it was an Ohio number. She the told me I would have to know the physical address.

This was a recorded message from "credit services" saying I should press "9" to lower my credit card interest rates. I pressed "9" and it connected to a live person. I asked to be removed from their list. Woman who answered said I had to give them my number for them to remove me. I told them I suspected they were scammers and she acted angry and actually said "why would you say that?". I hung up.

My number is on the DNC list. However, this phone number calls repeatedly and hangs up. Caller id only shows the identity as "Caller".

Those people call me at least once a month, but I always hang up when I realize it is them.

This is a Credit Card Scam, trying to get your Credit Card Number. In 2007 someone else wrote their story here, about Card Holder Service http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/411350/cardholder_services_nuisance.html


Below, is what I have found, thus far:

I got an automated message about lowering my interest rate on my credit card; it said to press 9 if I wanted to speak to a live operator. I pressed 9...thinking it was a scam but wanted to check it out. Rachel From Card Services / card holder services, Hispanic woman with a thick accent claimed to be with my credit card company and said she had all of my information but needed me to give her my credit card number just for verification purposes. She said that she already had all of the information in front of her but she needed me to verify the number. I refused...she kept pressin me saying that I was totally protected if my number was used. I told her I would NOT give my number over the phone; if she wanted it she'd have to tell me what it was and I would confirm. She said "OK, it starts with 4266"....um, WRONG! I then told her that I was not interested and to have a nice day. She continued to try to talk to me. I hung up. I immediately called my credit card company and told them what had happened. She said this is a major scam that's been going around and they are stealing information. DO NOT TALK TO THESE PEOPLE!!

They've been calling me often. They claim the call is placed by Experian, the credit reporting company. Here's how to opt out:

Recording said it was urgent that I lock in the current low rate on my credit card, and to press 9 to speak to an operator. I don't have any credit cards.

Called me this afternoon in NH. I don't know a soul in Ohio so I did not answer. This is the season for a lot of political survey calls, so that would be my guess but it is a still only a guess.

No one there when phone is answered. Called them back and got a recording "sorry your call can't be completed", a male voice (not your typical "operator" voice)
