I just added this # to my PhoneTray Free ZAP list.

Zap ANY annoying calls for free! Stop paying the telephone company thieves to do what this does for FREE.

http://www.phonetray.com/ptfree_download.htm

Your phone won't even ring and they will be hung up on after your message if you want to leave one. Been using this program for months and LOVE it!

They are working on a Pro version that will act like a full fledged answering machine. Calls you want can still leave a message on your answering machine. You can manually enter the bogus Unknown Name Unknown Number, ---------- and others that these bums use to circumvent the caller ID system. It will block them also. If you can type it in the box it will ZAP it! Or you can add to your zap list with a few clicks. Is a FABULOUS little program! It even works with older computers that don't have a 'voice modem'. The only call screen program I've seen that does. It also has an online look up that queries WhoCalled.US. How neat is that? They actually answer your EMails if you have ANY questions. If you want to use the upcoming Pro version you will need to buy an inexpensive external 'voice modem'. Newer computers come with voice modems. I have NO connection with the company other than I am extremely happy with their PhoneTray Free 1.37. Try this out, you will thank me!

I wish I could say this will stop them from calling again since few of them listen to the message you send them. BUT you won't have the phone ringing again with them and anyone else you zap. They will eventually quit but the great thing is you won't be bothered by them again. In the off chance that they actually listen to your message make them really long. This keeps them from bothering someone else while they listen.

After reading these posts, I'm glad I did not pick up the telephone...So far today...and it's just noon....I've had three of these annoying calls...it irks me to no end that they keep calling even after being on both the state and federal Do Not Call lists...I think I will answer the next time and tell them I work for the FTC and will be visiting them soon with warrants for John/Jane Doe who made the call.....

This is a scam run out of various locations in Florida. Last address was for "National Credit Card Services Inc", which had an "office" at 6399 142nd Ave North, Suite 101, Clearwater, Florida 33760.

Don't give them any information; it's a scam to steal your identity and money.

They've recently used the following aliases: Card Holder Services; Card Member Services; Credit Card Services; CCS Credit Services.

Last known "real" telephone number for these assholes is 407-565-2125 (a landline in Apopka / Orlando area, Florida)

Do the right thing, and report them (with this any any other information you can find) to Florida law enforcement agencies, and your own home state AG's office.

This is an organized crime operation tied to illegal gang / drug cartels. They are trying to get your credit card and other personal info to gain access to your accounts. Once they have the necessary info, they use your accounts to launder money.

Do not fall prey to these criminals!!! Never give out any personal information!!

Notify the Clearwater, FL police, and file a complaint with the FL Attorney General's office if you get a call from these people. And of course, file a DNC complaint.

Want to vent and get some revenge? Call these criminal bloodsuckers at *-6-7, 407-565-2125 (their real tel #)and tell them you know who they are, you know what they are doing, and you know where they are located...... and you're coming to deal with them.

HLB3, sorry, but you are a moron for giving all of that information to ANYBODY on the phone ever, especially on a call you didn't initiate. Prepare to pay for this stupidity for a very long time. They know your name, address, DOB, mother's maiden name and numerous other things. They can get credit cards in your name, they can use your information to do pretty much anything now. You are going to be fighting this for years.

RE: Robocall from Allegiance Telecom of FL, Inc. and 727-674-9999 on October 19, 2011

This is really hard for me to admit, but I am going to acknowledge all so that others can learn from my stupid, idiotic behavior.

Received a call from 727-674-9999 at 5:47 PM yesterday to my home phone # stating the following: There are no problems currently with your account. It is urgent that you contact us concerning your legibility for lowering your interest rate to as little as 6.9%. Your legibility expires shortly so please consider this your final notice. Press the #3 to discontinue further notices or press #1 to speak with a live operator and lower your interest rate. Thank you. Have a great day.

Like a fool, I pressed the #1. The first thing a young lady said to me, after waiting on the line for 5 minutes, was that I was selected because of my absolutely flawless credit card payment history, which is absolutely true. She identified herself as Credit Card Services and that she was empowered to lower high interest rate credit cards with large balances to 6.9% APR. She could do this for BoA, Citi Bank, Chase, Capital 1, etc., for MasterCard, Visa, and Discover credit cards. Did I have any that meet the criteria of credit line >$3,000 and higher than 13% APR. No, I said, but I have 2 below that rate with higher credit limits than that, but still above 6.9%. She asked for credit card #'s and confirmed expiration dates, asked for the last 4 digits of my SSN, all of which I freely gave (DUMB____). She kept me on the line while she checked stuff. Needed further info including DOB and Mother's maiden name, again which I gave (even DUMBER____). Then while waiting again for slow computers, they disconnected the call with no further explanation after about 45 minutes, which I surmise that they were isolating whom I was. As I looked to call them back, I got another call from another individual from the same company (Allegiance Telecom of FL, Inc.) 407-565-2125 who basically I believed to be a supervisor and who was familiar with my case because she could immediately talk about me. She said they could not lower the interest rate on either card because I previously had it lowered, which was not true. So there was nothing you can do, I asked. She said, yes, nothing more we can do. At which point, I said YOU ARE SCAMMERS, which she took personal offense to, and then said I know your name -- are you famous? I think I have heard your name before. Shortly thereafter, I said goodbye and hung up -- but I knew I'd been scammed. What really makes me angry is that I believed them. Most of the time I am very skeptical and would never provide information like that, but this time I was not. One hour later and after googling the telephone #'s, I cancelled the credit cards I'd compromised and placed fraud alerts on all three of my credit reports and further attempted to undo the damage I'd done by calling the cc providers. Then I changed and upgraded my passwords for my accounts. When I googled phone # for reverse look-up I found a myriad of other complaints about the same type of thing associated with that phone # and Allegiance Telecom of FL, Inc. I know they were successful in isolating me, because the supervisor was able to tell me exact balances on both credit cards and corrected me on the APR on one of the credit cards.

Now, I am going to get them -- going to hunt them down and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. I called the Clearwater Police Department to start and now have a detective investigating them. Let them clean up their own back yard. The FL Attorney General will also be a recipient of a later call today as well as the FTC.

No excuse for this felonious behavior even though their story is so believable. I guess I wanted to believe that here was a company doing something good for all the people experiencing such economic hard times right now. I cannot imagine how many people they have conned. They are a bunch of thieving ___HOLES, and I will get them. That is my solemn promise.

'Rachel at Credit Card Services' is at it again! The gov't prosecuted the people behind this and got a judgement against them. But - guess what? They're back! They do state that you'll be removed from their list if you 'press 3', but they will call again - because they use a random number dialer and do not check the numbers against the gov'ts Do Not Call list, which is illegal.

When I talked with one of them some time ago, he started cursing me and acted like a debt collector, which makes me think that the comment below about this outfit being a 'recovery specialist' for bad debt may be correct. Maybe lowering your interest rate is just part of the come-on to stick you with a debt you don't owe?

Whatever the truth about 'Rachel', do NOT provide them with any information!!!!

These guys are looking to get personal info from you. They call here a couple times a month...change the number...and start the whole process over again. Thankfully, I have a phone with call blocker, so, I plug the number and forget it...they will stop eventually. The only reason they are still in business is that some folks (as seen in comments below) still answer the phone. They bank on finding those who "don't get it" and give them what they want...and, unfortunately, they are all over the place. If you doubt that, just look at who the president of your country is...

This number was SUPPOSED to be provided by Allegiance Telecom of Florida in Tampa, which was purchased by XO Communications. I called XO - they do not own the number so it is SPOOFED!

Unbelievable - the government is busy regulating and taxing honest people and the crooks keep going around the system. Any suggestions on how to prevent these calls and more importantly, LOCK THEM UP?

This company keeps calling to "help me reduce my credit card interest". I don't have a problem with credit cards and I damn sure don't want them calling me. When I push one to talk to a LIVE operator I get hung up on as soon as I tell them to stop calling me.
