Another one in a series of over a hundred calls from this company. I've reported them numerous times to the Do Not Call list but it does no good.

THEIR COMPANY NAME IS "ACCOUNT SERVICES" THEY SAY THEY CAN LOWER YOUR INTEREST RATE ON YOUR CURRENT CREDIT CARD, TO TRY TO GET YOU TO BELEIVE THEY WORK FOR YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY. THEY WANT TO GET ANY INFORMATION FROM YOU, AND THEN THEY WILL TRULEY SERVICE YOUR ACCTS. GIVE NO INFO TO THEM UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET SCREWED. REPOTING DOESNT HELP. DO NOT CALL LIST DONT HELP. THEY ARE AN ILLEGAL COMPANY RUNNING A SCAM WHAT DO THEY CARE ABOUT LAWS AND LIST

I don't know what it will take to get it through to these people, but a small, thermonuclear device comes to mind.

This is one part of

Automotive Warranty Solutions, LLC
800-376-5644

Their website is http://www.automotivewarrantysolutions.com/index.html

They do not answer their e-mails and even faxing them does no good.

Multiple calls on two phones. On last call, credit card interest rate increase alluded to by caller. Rude. SCAM. Telephone number on caller ID is bogus. These people are also calling I believe using telephone numbers: 305-222-1966, 407-251-6572, 772-336-8160, which are all bogus, disconnected numbers. I have contacted the Florida Attorney General in writing. I am hopeful that his office will take action to investigate these bums. If enough people write and call the AG's office, it may encourage the state to go after these scam artists.

Received yet another call from these people claiming to lower my credit card interest rates. I am tired of these people so I decided to get a little payback. When they called I pressed 1 and got a live operator. I kinda mumbled and talked quietly so that the operator would raise the volume on his headset. After a couple of seconds, I aksed if he could hear me better and when he said yes I blasted the phone with one of those compressed air airhorns like they use at sporting events or on boats. Every policy that this company has for cursing was broken by him. I just started laughing and hung up on him. I figure they will take the number off or I can blast someone elses ear. Always breaks up the monotony of the day

scammers trying to get credit card info. the government should shut these people down, they are also behind the car warranty scam calls. i get these most everyday and they will not remove your number regardless of what you do. they disregard do not call lists and break laws and their typical take for anyone dumb enough to give them their credit card number is over $1000. they get your card number and call the credit card company to determine your card health and then make a charge, all the while swearing they will not charge you and they just need your card info to see if you qualify. if you sucker for this, you are really dumb.

I get these types of calls all the time. Today is the first time with this particular number. But I don't sweat it. In fact, I quite enjoy answering these calls sometimes and totally f**king with them. I know it's immature and childish to do, but this is how a typical "conversation" goes:
**ring, ring**
(I answer)
ME: Yeah, what the f**k do you want?!
THEM: Is this "Joe Blow"?
ME: Well, who the hell are you?
THEM: Again, sir, am I speaking with...
ME: What?! Speak up you puss, I can't hear what the f**k you're sayin'? Dumbass.
THEM: Uh, excuse me...
ME: There's no excuse for your ass, mutthafukka! Now, again, who the hell are you and what the f**k do you want?
THEM: Is this "Joe Blow"?
ME: Listen, you cocksucker, did I stutter? Who the f**k are you?!
THEM: I just need to confirm that I am speaking with "Joe Blow" and to discuss an important financial matter...
ME: Is that so? Well, I'm sorry but "Joe Blow" is busy getting his dick sucked by yo mama!

Usually by this point in the conversation, I've gotten them pissed off and we both end up in a big ol' cussing match trying to out-insult one another until one of us hangs up.

This is my second time dealing with calls from these ppl. They call themselves "account services" but rarely will tell you which company they are "account services" for. Unfortunately, the first time they called, they caught me at a very vulnerable time. I was rather despondent over the amount we owed on credit cards and was really sick at the time as well. I was on heavy duty pain meds and not thinking straight at all. Even though I know better, I let them talk me into "helping" us that first time. I actually gave them our credit card #'s and info for 2 of our cards. After talking to them for a couple of days, I figured out that they were going to charge me a couple of thousand dollars for their "services". They talked fast over this point saying things like "you won't even notice it on your card", "it's like we do it for free". Ummmm....yeah. After a few days, when I was thinking straight again, I realized what I had done. When they called again to get my husbands authorization since the cards were all in his name (they set up times to call me, would not give me a number to call them), I told them that he wasn't going to authorize it and we wanted nothing more to do with them. They told me that was fine but that their fee would still be charged because I had made a "binding contract" with them. I told them there was no binding contract because 1., I wasn't authorized to do anything concerning these cards since they weren't in my name and 2., I could prove that I was under the influence of medication at the time I first talked to them. The girl said she needed to talk to her supervisor and then came back and told me that this one time they would not charge the fee. I said great, don't ever call again. And wouldn't ya know, here they are again. Btw, we didn't cancel the cards that I gave them the info on but I do monitor them them closely and as of yet (over a year later) no charges have been made on it. I guess we are lucky on that point. They are definitley scammers and beg ppl not to do what I did. In my right mind, I would never ever give credit card info to people over the phone. Another point, they don't claim to be an actual credit card company....they claim to be a company who can negotiate on your behalf to lower your interest. Newsflash, you can call your card companies and ask them directly to lower your interest, these companies can do nothing more than you can do yourself.

Hang-up call. Caller ID says "PTST LUCIE, FL". This is another "spoofed" phone number from the same scum bags who use hundreds of other fake numbers to try to scam people. The majority of junk calls I've received have area codes for Florida. It's too bad we can't block all of these calls. Our phone company (Frontier) is totally useless on this issue and the FTC seems unable or unwilling to do anything about it.

These people called last night wanting to discuss my credit cards. First off I don't discuss things like that with ANYBODY, second I would like too know how they got my number since we are on the do not call list. But apperantly that doesn't mean squat to some companys. When I explained to the caller/rep that we don't have any credit cards he hung up without even saying sorry to bother you or have a nice evening. Of course what can one expect from a fly by night group. Of course the number is disconnected!

I am at home sick, and the phone rang with an out of area and phone number of 772-336-8160 on the caller ID. I pick up the phone to hear a fast recording about my credit card interest rates. We get called often, and from other numbers. I really wish these people will leave us alone.

they have called my elderly father twice this week, telling him that his account is overdue, needs to be paid or will be closed. won't let him get a word in edgewise; very rapid fire speech pattern and they act very irate with him. won't tell him what company they are calling from (and no, he's not overdue on any of his accounts). extremely upsetting to him, a man in his eighties with a serious heart condition. both my sister and i called the number that showed on his caller id and got a "number disconnected" recording.

this is the lowest kind of scum. the type that preys on The Greatest Generation.

I received a call from this number, was told to press 1 to talk to a representative. The person I was directed to asked a number of questions about my credit card usage and amounts due. He then zeroed in on one account, asking for the last 4 digits of my Social Security number, the expiration date of the card in question and amount outstanding. He said that they could lower my interest rate if I would provide the full credit card number. I said no way over the phone to someone I did not know. He hung up! A scam it sure sounds like!!

I got one of the last chance to lower your interest rate on your credit card call again. I pushed 1 and connected with a guy, asked how I was doing and I went along waiting for the chance to see who it was then ask to be taken off the list, like it would do any good. He almost started on a speal, then he upbruptly stopped and said let me call you back and hung up. hmmmm I am on the do not call list too... Kinda weird

First off, this sounds like these guys still http://heatherwithaccountservices.com/

Second there is something that you can do. Get yourself an Asterisk server, port your POTS to SIP, and then blacklist the SOBs. You'll save *LOTS* of money and have *TOTAL* control over how your calls are handled.

Forget the DNCL, its only for the legitimate marketers, the scammers could care less. And when there caught the DNCL will be the least of their problems.

have rec'd more than a few of these; this was for a lower interest rate. when a 'customer serv rep' came on the line, I requested the name of the credit card company and a supervisor. they hung up on me. when you call back, it says number is disconnected.

if it was not a scam and you are on the 'do not call list' such callers identify themselves, apologize and advise they will insure you are NOW on the list.

a possible scam or fraud will just hang up on you - AND these are not from over seas but right in the USA with good old American callers.

FRAUD ALERT: THIS COMPANY LEAVES A MESSAGE STATING THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TRYING TO CONTACT YOU ABOUT YOUR CREDIT CARD ACCOUNT AND TO PRESS ONE TO IMMEDIATELY SPEAK TO A REPRESENTATIVE. AFTER YOU PRESS ONE A PERSON WILL ASK YOU FOR ALL SORTS OF CREDIT CARD NUMBERS AND INFORMATION. THIS IS A SCAM...DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THESE PEOPLE. A REAL CREDIT CARD COMPANY WOULD NEVER LEAVE A MESSAGE STATING THEY ARE CALLING ABOUT CREDIT CARDS.

Called my wife and told her they could lower my credit card rates. She said it was not her name on the account. He said "let me check with my manager" and came back and told her it was fine she could authorize it. She set up a conference call with me (Iwas at work) . The gentleman "Michael - employee ID 75120" could not figure out how to conference so I did it for him. He said he worked for Visa and Mastercard when we asked him who he worked for. We asked him 3 times what company he works for and finally said "acountt services, inc." Yes, that's how he spelled account. He said Visa and MC had sent him info on us and we qualified to have our interest rates lowered and that after he was done he would conference us with the cardholders and we could hear him negotiate a lower rate. A bunch of other BS and upon questioning he said he would need our account numbers to make sure "there were no late payments in the last 6 moinths". I said there were, he said "how many" I said 2. He said "that's ok as long as it is under 5" at which point we terminated the call.
Caller ID: 772-336-8160
Caller: none on the ID, claimed "acountt service

When you call this number back, it says it's disconnected. Obviously, it's not REALLY a legit satellite or credit card company--it's an illegal pfishing scam operated by criminals who are trying to get our credit card numbers. That's why they call even though we're on the "Do Not Call" list...what the hell do they care if they're not supposed to call us? They're breaking the law anyway!
