I do not do business over the phone. I do not recognize this caller ID. If this is a legitimate business, the caller ID will reflect the true company / organization name. In this case, it did not do that. Also, if this is a legitimate business, they will leave a message; they did not do that, either. I have reported this number to the Do Not Call Complaint website (complaints.donotcall.gov).

616.980.2546 - Bank Card Svcs is not to be confused with 616.980.2030 - Bank Card Srvcs (notice the second number has an 'r' in it).

This is the same scum violating DNC using 616-980-2030, 616-980-2063, and probably a whole bunch of other numbers. It's a scam / fraud / flagrant violation of DNC.

From the earlier comments & reports -- looks like they use the same main number from multiple area codes.
I hear from these bozos several times a week .. For entertainment, have been pushing the #1 as soon as the "Second chance" line starts.
Nice little girl seems to think that they don't use auto-dialers, and that, somehow, *I called her*! And got really pissed when she couldn't get a word in edgewise.

This number is still calling me. Since DoNotCall Registry and *77 aren't helping, my current message on my answering machine states - 'you've reached 972-___-____. If you're a telemarketer please remove my name and number from your list. Repeat callers are reported to the FTC and FCC. Last resort will be to spend $50-$100 for a device that blocks telemarketers.

I keep getting robo calls from this and many other numbers beginning at 7:30 a.m. and on to as late as AFTER 9:00 p.m regardless of being on the DO NOT CALL list. Why can't something be done to stop these annoying calls? They usually come at inconvenient times and it's very annoying to have to stop everything to check caller I.D. and decide whether to answer or not. My phone is for MY convenience...not these idiots who, more than half the time, don't have the courtesy to speak!

Kept getting call with recorded message from "Bank Card Service", so today I selected #1. A young guy answered and said they could help get lower rates on our credit cards. I asked how can he call if I'm on a No Call List. He then said, "Suck my d!@&" and hung up.

(The message starts playing before my machine finishes the greeting.) These scumbags think they are circumventing the DNC Registry by encouraging you to "press 1" thereby (in their mind) creating a plausible argument that you contacted them.

This is from a company that has called me several times now, (this time on a Saturday) about the interest rate on my credit card. When the recording ends and a live person answers, he speaks with a soft African accent and asks my name. They don't even know my name, but they are calling about my card! Apparently, they also don't know that I don't use credit cards!

These bastards keep calling from different numbers. They leave no option to remove your number from their system. They want to "lower your credit card bills" although I don't even carry a balance. Basically, they want to rape your wallet. Don't give them any personal information and definitely don't give them credit cards information! They are pretending to offer a balance transfer at a lower rate, but they are ONLY after your credit card numbers so they can use them!

Hit answer then hung up. Scammers don't know the laws regarding cell phones and nuisance calls.
Go to FCC.gov and file a wireless telephone complaint, online. I've done it as many times as they
call me. It works. And keep your Do Not Call registry current. You can only threaten telemarketers
you will report them if your numbers have been on the registry for over 30 days.
It's best to learn your part in reporting to the correct agency and not just complain here or other
forums, websites, etc. Report numbers to your atate's AG if you are on the DNC registry so they can
collect fines. Document numbers and times and report them!

I receive a call from this number at least 3 times a week. I usually don't answer because I know it is a scam, and it is going to say it is my second and final offer. If only that we're true and they wouldn't call again in an hour...lol today I decided to answer it and press 1 to tell them that I do not appreciate being called so repeatively. After it rang for what seemed like 3-4 minutes a man came on the line and asked " are you responding to the offer to lower your interest rate?" I then told him I was responding to the fact that I am fed up with the phone calls, and that I am on the national do not call list, if it continued i would seek legal action. He immediately hung up.

Last week, we got a call from a service similar to that described above, with a "spoofed" caller ID from Zeeland, MI near Grand Rapids. The number shown was 616-613-2227. Since we had family in that area, we (made an erroneous judgment and) answered the call. The female started on the "lowering your credit card interest" routine. Advised her that we did not pay interest, as we paid our bills promptly. She continued on, getting progressively nastier. When I advised her that we were on the National Do Not Call list, she went ballistic and stated that they "paid no attention to that". I told her we did not want to be called again and that we would report her. She shouted profanities and said we'd "regret that".

We then blocked that number, but have since been bombarded by calls from the following numbers: 703-493-1172, 703-646-0725, 703-493-1453, 714-607-6298, 866-463-3867, 866-431-5117, and (today) 616-980-2030.

It is apparent that these folks wreak havoc with people who object to their low-life tactics.

Anti-Spammer: Right on! Couldn't have said it better myself. Why do people that obviously have CID continue to answer
the phone on unknown calls? They are paying for the CID service and yet continue to ignore the CID box. Then they complain because it was some scammer trying to rip them off. Truly amazing!

Why do people think if the phone rings they must answer it? You have
CID, USE IT! Do you let anyone coming to your door into your home? Of
course not. Wake up people, these are crooks, DO NOT ANSWER when they
call you! They manipulate the CID system so the info is probably fake.
If for some insane reason you must answer it's too late! Soon as you
answer you've told them your number is valid. They sell this info to
other scammers. Pushing a # to 'remove yourself from their list' does
absolutely NOTHING for you. Do NOT call them back!
IF YOU DON'T RECOGNIZE THE NUMBER DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE! WAKE UP!
Stop these calls with Phone Tray Pro - Https://www.phonetray.com/
The phone block system the phone company charges you for does NOT
block all the calls Phone Tray Pro does. I have NO connection with
Phone Tray Pro, I am simply an EXTREMELY happy customer. Best money
I have ever spent! DIGITONE ($100)(Only blocks 80 #s), TELE ZAPPER,
PRO CALL BLOCKER ($50) etc don't do nearly what Phone Tray Pro does
and cost a LOT more! Don't waste your money on these worthless gadgets.
As of 08/22/13 I have 204 #'s, 12 Wild Card #'s and 18 CID names on my
PTP Black List that will never get through again.
The DNC doesn't affect scammers. Don't be so naive. You can report them
to the FTC but honestly when was the last time the federal government
ever did anything for you? Oh I forgot, Obamacare. Speaking of scams!

My phone # is unlisted. I received a call at 2:04CST. Answered phone, listened to their automated message and pressed 1 to speak to representative. Waited on hold for 5 minutes before "Carlos" began talking about lowering interest rates on credit cards. I said, "I've heard this pitch before. Let's see if yours is any better." "Carlos" immediately hung up. I called the number back numerous times to attempt to speak with a "representative." I finally selected the "Do Not Call" option. We'll see if that does any good. I am in Illinois. Aparently, the 217 area code is today's target.

Always check your phone Caller ID first and if the caller is not a friend, your employer or business you know and trust, or from your local calling area, then never answer the phone ... let it ring while you go do something else. Your State's Do Not Call List and the Federal Do Not Call List mean absolutely nothing to these criminals. I'm surprised at the number of people that answer these scam calls ... are people really that dumb or clueless about scams?! Apparently people really are that ignorant about phone scammers after reading some of these comments.

The message started speaking over my answering machine, notifying me that this was my second and final chance to lower my (non-existent) credit card interest rate. So I pressed "1" to speak to an operator and politely asked them to remove my name from their lists - ask directed by the Do No Call registry. Imagine my surprise when they hung up on me!
