This scammer calls numbers on the national do not call registry in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. they further violation the TCPA by not having an operator on the line when the call is answered, and still further violate the TCPA by playing a recorded message when the phone is answered without an operator to pause or stop the recording and answer questions. They compound their violation by refusing to provide a phone number or physical address when asked. Their recording claims that you are eligible for a reduction on your credit card rates and fees. The recording also falsely claims that this is your second (no, they call a lot) and final (probably not, as they keep calling) notice. This is clearly a scam, as any legitimate business would gladly provide the phone number and address when asked, and would not violate the TCPA by calling numbers on the do not call list and playing a recording without an operator on the line to answer questions. Do not provide this scammer any information.

This scammer calls numbers on the national do not call registry in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. They inform you that you have been selected for a reduced interest rate and reduced payments on your credit card, you just have to verify some information. However, they refuse to provide a non-toll-free phone number when asked, stating (falsely) that no businesses have non-toll-free phone numbers. When asked for a physical address, the operator answers, "Go **** yourself in your ******g *** you f*****," and hangs up. This is clearly just a scam trying to get personal information and credit card information, as 100% of legitimate businesses will gladly provide a phone number and address - and since it is required that they do so when asked under the TCPA. Do not provide these phishers any personal information.

This scammer calls numbers on the national do not call registry in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. They inform the caller that they have been selected to participate in a survey, and in exchange for the survey, if they qualify, they will be given 0% interest on their credit card debt. However, the caller refuses to provide a non-toll-free phone number when asked, and refuses to provide a physical address when asked, both required by the TCPA. They do provide a web address, but the address provided is for a domain that is not registered. This is clearly a phishing scam trying to get people's credit card information or personally identifiable information. Do not provide this scammer any information.
