I believe these are credit card scammer calls trying to obtain info on your credit cards (i.e. card #, your name, address, phone #, and any other info you will provide. Do not give them any information!
California Aug 21st, 2013
Same crap, different day. They also call from 616-613-2227
and probably a wealth of other numbers. They keep changing them and repeatedly call from new numbers. I just can't block them all, but that is their plan anyway. Fraudster/scammer weasels, trying to obtain credit card info from idiots who seem to keep them in business. Bunch of wankers!
I cannot believe this cannot be stopped. Something stinks about all these scamming phone calls besides the Muslim Rat Bastards.
like a fly buzzing around my head...

Robo call with no way to stop. Called at 12:25 pm
Robocall, press 1 to talk with someone, as this "is the final warning", complete BS. Even though I'm on the Do Not Call list, doesn't make an ounce of difference..
North Carolina Aug 12th, 2013
Robocall. We are on both state and federal Do No Call lists, makes no difference. Starts with a recorded message. Caller hangs up when I ask for mailing address.
Called re credit card lowering.
I just got a call which I will add to my block list. I will now get no ring but will get a list of blocked calls on my phone.
I have the Panasonic cordless telephone Model kx-tg6842b (2 handsets)
You can block 250 numbers plus kill the one ring that existed on earlier models that only allowed 30 blocked numbers.
The one handset model sells for $70 at Amazon.
Massachusetts Aug 08th, 2013
I got sick of spam so bought a new cordless phone by Panasonic. It will block up to 20 phone numbers. My phone rings once to let me know a blocked caller is calling. The spammer gets a busy signal then my phone hangs up on them. It's a beautiful thing. :-)
Called on July 26, 2013 at 5:33pm ET. Called my home phone. Caller ID showed caller's name as "Bank Card Services". Did not recognize number as my local bank so I did not answer call. My phone number is registered with my State's Do Not Call Registry and the Federal Do Not Call Registry. These kinds of scammers could care less your number is listed as "Do Not Call". I'm amazed people answer calls from out-of-state callers they do not know and do not have any business dealings with. People should only answer call if they recognize the number as a friend of theirs or a company they are familiar with such as their employer or a company they buy services from, otherwise never answer the phone. Maybe we need to have NSA identify them since 100% of all calls are recorded it should be easy for them to do and then send a SWAT Team to to wherever they are located and take them to jail like they do when they bust into people's homes. Would love to see the look on their faces when they bust in through several doorways all-at-once in full body armor.

I get this about once a week now.
Washington Aug 06th, 2013
I have gotten a call from them, June, July, August the numbers with bank services are June 4 / 616-613-2199
/315 pm, July 8/ 616-613-2228 / 1106 am, August 5 / 616-613-2228 / 130 pm (they say it is the last chance to get low rates, and then they all again. I monitor calls and keep a record of them.
These people won't quit callig they call ones a week we have told them we are on the do not call registry they don't care they keep calling. I have registered this with the NDCR and we still get calls. How do you make it stop this is hassment in the truest form
A robocall. An offer to reduce credit card interest rate.
Just file a complaint to the National Do Not Call Registry as this company starts with a recorded message which is illegal. While you are there you can register your numbers to help safeguard against future incidents from this or any other telemarketer. Be empowered
Credit card important information.Have gotten this call before.
I've been getting calls from this number on a daily basis. When I wait to speak to a real person and tell them to take me off their list, they rudely hang up on me. On August 1.2013 I received 3 calls. We are on the do not call list and I don't know what to do anymore. I feel harassed and violated. What are my options?

robo call "final notice" interest scam
They call and leave a message stating financial help under a government program I added them to my call blocker list and they are history. Do yourself a favor and upgrade your home phone to the new 2013 Panasonic digital phone call blocking answering machine on amazon for $115 with 5 handsets. KX-TG6845B. This system blocks 250 calls. Scammers have robo-callers, and I have robo-caller-blocker. You can complain all you like but you just can't stop them, many are not even in this country. The phone companies could filter the majority of calls but they have no interest, they just want to sell service. Stop bitching, purchase a good call blocking system, and enjoy the silence.
what's amazing to me is that every time they call they say "this is my last chance" and yet they call again. i picked up and when i asked the woman to remove my number from their database, she hung up! when i called back, it rings busy.
this is clearly NOT a legitimate outfit.
They called on my published line. I didn't pick up and they left the usual message -- a woman rattling on about lower interest rates. They call quite often, at least once or twice per week.
Got a call from 616-613-2228, an "unknown caller" from Zeeland, MI at 4:33 pm on 07/29/2013. Luckily, I never pick up the phone if I don't know the number. They didn't leave a voicemail, but past experience with these a***oles is to NEVER pick up and NEVER press buttons or give them any information. It's all a scam, and if you pick up, they know the number is "live" and will continue to call it more often. As annoying as it is, your best bet is to not pick up if you don't know the number. Saves you a major headache.
they have called before. I asked them to drop me from their, "list", but I guess they do not do what is asked of them!
I did not answer. The year 2013 and we cannot answer our phones.
This is the 2nd time I've received a call from this number. It's a robocall saying it was our "2nd and final call" for an offer to lower our card interest rates and only offered a 'press 1' to speak to an operator. They did not offer and opt-out choice. The call also said it was relate to "the US stimulus" which sure sounded fishy to me and made me believe this was not really related to our Chase credit cards.
Have received several calls from this number. Current caller ID is Zeeland, MI and it is all a scam. When not answering this call, will get a call from 360-322-6184
with a caller ID of Marysville, WH. It is all a scam
ANOTHER of the ENDLESS unsolicited credit card interest rate calls from a robocaller. it's so urgent, I've been getting the same recording for two years! hurry now before the interest rates change. hahahah

Do yourself a favor. Google SIT Tone. This is the telephone company's tone you hear when the number is no longer in service. Download it for free and keep the file open when you start up your PC. Keep your phone by the PC and when these morons call open the file first and then answer the phone holding the receiver next to your speakers. Robo caller will delete your number as non active. Simple fix.

Bank Card Svcs called me at 3pm on 07/17/2013. Have no idea who they are or what they want as I did not answer the phone.
This number has come up many times before but this time I was home and answered. Again a message said that this was the last attempt to reach me regarding lowering my credit card rate and if I was interested to press 1. With no option to be removed from the call list, I pressed 1. When a man answered, I asked him what credit card company he was calling from and he replied with "Do you owe more than $4,000 on your credit card?" When I repeated my request he just repeated the same question but in a very intimidating tone. I once again asked what credit card company he represented and he just hung up. I will report this to the FCC as I am on the do not call registry. I will also block this phone number from coming through again.
Blocked caller & left no msg.
Washington Jul 23rd, 2013
Sure wish the gov't agency running the DNC registration had some teeth to go after companies like this that violate it.
This company calls numbers on the do not call registry without authorization or a pre-existing relationship (which is illegal). They then play a recorded message without an operator on the line (which is also illegal). The recorded message is clearly a scam claiming (falsely) that this is the second (not second) and final (not final) notice that you are eligible for a credit card rate reduction. When you get through to an operator, the operator refuses to provide a phone number (they are required by law to provide this when asked), and if you ask for a physical address (also required by law) they hang up on you. If their illegal pre-recorded message does not clearly indicate that this is a scam, their refusal to provide basic contact information definitely proves them to be a scam...
Scammers. Asked what bank they represent and they hung up on me.
they have wasted their time...they have called for months on the landline and except for the first time when I unwittingly answered and then hung up on them, I just ignore it. Of course, they don't leave a message. This sleazeball outfit, "Bankcard Services" continues to change numbers. Today they called my cell but it's even easier to ignore for me so it has become a game of 'wits' (me) and 'halfwit losers' (guess who!)
Washington Jul 23rd, 2013
do not know anyone in 616 A/C so I know it is a scammer trying to sell crap or get money. I never respond and they never leave a message
Called my cell. I did not pick up, and I tried to dial from a landline, but they never picked up.
New Jersey Jul 22nd, 2013
Zeeland, MI - spamarama...
this number continues to call how do I block this call. Every time I ask what they want they hang up
This scammer keeps calling, but I never answer because I do not know anyone in the 616 area code. This time I was out in the back yard washing my dog and ignored the ringing. If my Call Block wasn't full I'd block them. What we need is an unlimited Call Block. 15 maximum is surely not enough with all of these creeps calling.
Washington Jul 20th, 2013
This is a "Bank Card Svcs" number on the caller ID. They want my credit card information to verify my debt status and to lower my credit card interest rate. I kept her on the line for about 5 min to hear what she had to say. I then told her I have been called by "Bank Card Svcs" numerous times and requested to speak to a supervisor or manager to get my number off their robo dialing list. She refused to transfer me and abruptly hung up on me.
This is a scammer!
California Jul 20th, 2013
Bank card services 616-613-2228. I answered the call, pressed 1 and when asked to be removed from their call list they hung up on me.
UNBELIEVABLE! I get calls from this company on a weekly basis...I have repeatedly asked to be taken off their list and have hit the option to be removed before a live person comes to the phone but I continue to receive calls. Today was the final straw...the a**hole that I ended up talking to made so many disgusting comments to me and about me including very explicit sexual references. And since my 3 year old in the background was calling me, starting making sexual references to her as well! I have filed a complaint with the FCC not that it will do any good.
Does anyone REALLY know anyone from Zeeland, MI? The answer would be NO and neither do I!!

Auto dialer churning out call traffic generates tariff for originating phone Co from called phone Co for called phone Co to query CID DB
Pennsylvania Jul 18th, 2013
This is the second call I've received in two days. The other call was from 616-613-2229
. Both messages stated that it was my second an final call about my credit card debt and something about a stimulus. Same old stuff that I used to receive from Card Holder Services including the same voice of Rachel. The message was already running when my voice mail started recording so their dialer isn't even checking to see if anyone is on the line. Time for another report to the FTC.
somebody needs to get on the phone and stop these people from harassing the public. making me real damn mad.
It does not help to report to the DO NOT CALL list. The sobs always seem to call mid afternoon. Recording only.
this number calls all the time. I pressed #1 to talk to an agent. When he ansewered after about ten rings...I told the person to remove my number from their calling list and he didn't say a word and just hung up on me. Real class act.
theses dam people keep calling couple times day we asked them many times to stop remove us from call list they say they never called ya right on my id then hang up
It is a big joke to ask these scammers to remove you from their list. Why would they respect your request when they obviously do not respect the Do Not Call list.
We need to write to our congressional representatives to get this shut down completely. European countries do not allow scammers to call and bother people so why do we in the USA?
California Jul 18th, 2013
HUNG UP BEFORE i COULD ASK TO BE TAKEN OFF THERE LIST NONE OF THE OPTIONS GIVEN WERE ABLE TO BE USED, THIS IS MOST DEFINATELY A SCAM
As always criminals do not care if you are on the do not call list. There is a way to get rid of these people. NO ONE should answer their calls. The only reason this continues is there are STUPID people who fall for this. If it makes the scammer no money it is a waste of their time. Oh, and there's no way in hell I would fall for a "call this number" and they will take care of it lie either!!

616-613-2228, just received a call on my cell from this #, caller ID shows: MI, they did not leave a message.
Bank Card Svcs - did not answer, telemarketing scumbags
I just received yet another call from this number, on which I have normally hung up. This evening I answered and waited til I was the first caller in line, then when I got through to a person named Jeff I asked him if he could please remove our name from the calling list and he said "No" and hung up. Needless to say, I would like for this number not to call us again.
Just received a call from this number when I told them I do not have credit cards the a--h--- that answered said "oh I guess they don't use credit cards in a trailer park!"I would love to meet this pole smoker face to face!
Received 2 calls today from this number with message "take advantage now for lower interest" I think it is a scam so did not respond
I constantly get these calls.
Same here Some crap about my final notice of taking advantage of something from the "financial stimulus."
And I am pn a don not call list.

my phone number is on the Do Not Call List, yet I continue to get numerous unwanted telemarket calls….or political calls. I have Caller ID so I do not answer calls when I do not know the number…Is there anything that can be done about these calls? What a nuisance! Why don't these people get a real job?
no voice, my guess an autodialer / number checker... to a phone that is on the do not call list !!!!
