I use a spread sheet to log calls. Any number that appears 4 or more times I put on block. Here are the numbers that are all connected from the same or similar phone exchange
616-613-2227
616-613-2626
616-980-2030
616-980-2063
619-354-9084

I have logged, in total 210 calls over a 2 month period. All these numbers are on permenent block

Bank Card Services. Very similar to the "Rachel from Cardholder Services" from A+ Financial Center, LLC aka Accelerated Financial Centers, LLC aka; Accelerated Accounting Services that was charged by the FTC with misleading consumers about their services, calling phone numbers on the Do Not Call Registry, illegally collecting up-front fees, and making illegal robocalls. The FTC imposed a judgment of $9,238,155 in August of 2013. It seems more than coincidental that "your second and final notice to lower interest" calls began just as "Rachel" calls were tapering off. I would be very surprised if "Cardholder Services" and "Bank Card Services" were not related ventures. Rather than complaining to the FCC I recommend filling out a Do Not Call online complaint at the FTC website. They seem to be far more effective with predatory phone scammers. Also, it is Very Important that you file the FTC complaint as soon as possible after the call as this "company" changes the displayed phone number on a regular basis.

Recording saying something to the effect that this was a very important message about my credit card account. Some robo calls are illegal: http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0259-robocalls

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.

The best way I have found to deal with this automated moron (lol) is to block their calls, using your own phone capabilities.

LUCRE INC. I don't use any credit card they would be interested in! This is ridiculous.
Reported to FCC.gov since they obviously don't know, cell phones are protected under wireless
telephone act. These calls are on a random dialer, they don't leave a message on voicemail if you
don't answer.

Where are the state attorney generals on this violation on privacy? Close this scam up. I am on do not call list and these jokers keep calling. Sometimes it says private number on caller Id. But you know it is them. They are relentless and annoying. Do not call me...........

Here is their message on the machine: "... set the terms, conditions and associated changes before the next billing cycle. Again, this is your final [??!?!??] notice as it relates to the financial stimulus. So press "1" now to take advantage of this today."

They left a phone message to say this. Even if they are scammers, they are very stupid scammers. I have heard this message at least 1/2 dozen times in recent months, finally taking the time to report this because it annoys me so much. I plan to report this phone number to whatever regulatory agency is supposed to police this, after I post this message on every web site for reporting spam calls I can find.

Wish I could call the actress who recorded this script at home every few weeks and leave her an insanely annoying message as a token of my appreciation for her "work."

I never answer calls such as these. I imagine it's the CEO of Bank Card Services trying to sell 8-by-10 color glossys of himself having sex with barnyard animals.

Cardmember services. Reverse lookup indicates this is a land line out of MI. No "opt out" so my wife requested an agent who gave his name as Michael Stevens #957. He was apparently not concerned that we are on the do not call list.

Will report to Feds and PA State Attorney General

recorded message offered to lower my interest rate on credit card before the "stimulus" period expired. When I pushed 1 to talk to someone, they hung up.

The are using a recorded message when they call which is against the law. If you are on the do-not-call list you can report them at 1-888-382-1222.

I know some people say the DNC does not work, but it won't unless we all report these calls. Sometimes it does take a while, but since I signed up about 6 years ago the calls on our two lines have gone from maybe 5-6 calls a month to 3-4 calls a year.

Left the tail end of a message on my answering machine. "...conditions and associated changes before the next billing cycle...as it relates to the financial stimulus. Press 1..."
If only they'd put their energies to something good...
